Congratulations to all the New Talent, Next Generation and Senior Stylist winners for NZARH Restyled Instagram Competitions!

Special thanks to: ghd, Goldwell, L’Oreal, Wella, Schwarzkopf, HITO, Images Magazine, and Killer Groom.

Following the global pandemic of COVID-19, the NZARH Competitions Committee restyled the Live Competitions into an online format for the 2020 season.

This online format reflected the Events within the competition format that reflect “salon saleable” skills to celebrate the fantastic work that is being produced everyday by hairdressers and barbers up and down the country.

The hairdressing Events are: 1, 3, 9 and 10. The Barbering Events are: 2, 4, 7 and 8.

The “salon saleable” events also eliminated the need for investing in photoshoots and potential cancellations due to Covid-19 Levels and restrictions.

The Judges were thrilled to see so many entries – some sections even reached a few 100!

Thank you to everyone who entered our NZARH 2020 Restyled Instagram Competition! We hope to be able to host Live Competitions again in cities across NZ for 2021!
