Monday the 13th June saw Hayley Warner of Oscar Oscar, Carindale named one of Australia’s brightest stars and part of the HOTSHOTS team at the annual Australian Hair Industry Award’s Creative 2022 gala awards evening at the International Convention Centre, Sydney. Launched in 2012 by esteemed trade visionaries Mocha Publishing, the AHIA’s are celebrating their 10th year as the trusted national award platform which provides a benchmark of excellence across both specialist and individual Educational and Business categories and the second year that the Creative categories have been given their own awards program.


The event was held as part of the inaugural HAIR FESTIVAL over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, an exciting new initiative which maintained the legacy of the industry’s much loved and most celebrated hair event Hair Expo which was sadly cancelled in 2020. The gala night was MC’d by Creative Director, Host and Media Personality Adam Williams and the evening saw 800 of the most talented hairdressers and their salon teams watching on as the awards were announced.


A key highlight was the announcement of the much-anticipated HOTSHOTS team for 2022, putting a spotlight on the industry’s most exciting next-gen talent and providing the chance for these 31 and under superstars to take their career to a whole new level. Judges look for hairdressers who excel in the areas of cutting, styling, editorial and colour work, have a unique style, unparalleled passion and a clear vision of the future. This crew were judged by familiar faces including Dee Parker-Attwood, Jayne Wild, Benni Tognini, Stevie English, Kobi Bokshish, Sharon Blain and Brad Ngata.

Elle Coco- Jack Horton Hair, QLD
