The Australian Hair Fashion Awards – as brought to you by M Division – is proud to announce the official 2020 AHFA Gala date, following initial event postponement due to Covid-19 enforced restrictions.
A first in the program’s 28-year history, the 2020 AHFA Gala was this year placed on immediate standby, due to the global Coronavirus pandemic and ensuing health and safety concerns.
As such, we understand the immense frustration that all of our prized finalists have experienced; from concerns around event rescheduling and of course, the unforeseen pressure this pandemic has placed upon our industry at large.
With hundreds of exceptional entries, and countless incredible finalists to platform, it has been our foremost duty to action all that has been within our capacity to confidently schedule a new date for the 2020 Australian Hair Fashion Awards.
After careful planning and consideration of all our options, we have finally been able to secure a new date for this year’s AHFA Gala: Sunday 8th November 2020. As with previous instalments, the event will take place inside Sydney’s Luna Park Big Top.
This will be a night for the entire hairdressing community to come together and celebrate our wonderful achievements across all facets of the industry.
It will also be a time to recognise our resilience and unity during the most challenging season our industry has collectively endured.
Once again, the 2020 Australian Hair Fashion Awards is proudly partnered with global technology company, Dyson; an engineering company that is all about problem solving, with disruptive beauty technologies that deliver enhanced styling without extreme heat damage for all hair types.
With so much planning required, the securing of a new date marks the first step in bringing this anticipated event to life in 2020.
With this in mind, we ask for your continued patience as we continue to navigate the many unknown factors that exist around this current landscape.
We remain positive and optimistic for a November 8th AHFA Gala, and will as such adhere to all necessary precautions and guidelines for guests’ safety.
The Australian Hair Fashion Awards are also thrilled to announce a new category for 2020!
Titled ‘Industry Choice Collection of the Year’, this category is open for all collections shot since January 2020 and will see the announcement of 10 finalists before the reveal of this year’s winner at the 2020 AHFA Gala. Stay tuned for more entry details!
