Well our first awards evening is done and dusted for 2016, and the first one off the ranks was the Australian Hair Industry Awards or the AHIA’s for short.
This year we were finalists in two categories – AHIA State Salon Business of the Year – NSW/ACT, and AHIA Salon Team of the Year, with some very tough competition from around the country. But for our little boutique salon down in Miranda, in the Sutherland Shire being even recognised at this level for the second year in a row in this style of competition is already beyond our wildest dreams.
The AHIA awards evening is held at the Brisbane Convention Center on the South Bank and is put together from the amazing team from Mocha Publishing and lead by owner and not just the beauty but the brains behind this whole awesome competition Linda Woodhead.
Unfortunately this year, wasn’t our year and we didn’t win any awards, but for us it’s just about the night and the night was just unreal, catching up with lots of old friends, making lots of new ones and most of all just having a good time.
The Australian Hair Industry Awards is definitely becoming a firm favorite of ours to attend, even if we do pay the price the next day after the amazing after party. We’re all getting to old for those 3am finishes.
Till next years AHIA’s we can’t wait…..
