Says Mary, ”We are so over the moon and proud of our team for being nominated for Artistic Team in the Australian Hair Fashion Awards and I am so excited and grateful to have had my work recognized in 3 categories, including the very top category – the pinnacle of every hairdresser’s career is to win Australian Hairdresser of the Year.”

“I’ve been blessed to have a team of amazing people around me who support and encourage me and help bring my vision to life.”

The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA) is Australia’s largest and most successful independent hairdressing awards program that attracts hundreds of entries from salons and individuals across Australia. A panel of international industry professionals who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the judging process judge the entries.

The Artistic Team, led by creative duo Mary Alamine & Travis Bandiera, has been nominated and recognized for their outstanding creative direction, and Mary’s Australian Hairdresser of the Year nomination recognizes a hairdresser whose collection shows fashion forward and innovative hair styling with a strong invention gene.
The winner will be identified as a worthy leader for Australian Hair Fashion on a world stage as a result of their unrivalled ‘newness’ in creativity and stand out execution.

“It’s the Royals Hair mission to deliver the very best service to all our clients and have a team that shared this vision, since opening Royals Hair Castle Hill in 2007. It is through hard work and education that we are where we are today and we will still work hard to deliver the best experience in the salon for our clients. Our award nominations are a true reflection of our hard work and creativity!” Says Mary.

Winners of the 2019 Australian Hair Fashion Awards will be announced at a gala dinner night on Sunday 14th April at Luna Park Sydney.
