Aveda’s National Color Harmony Awards returns for another stellar year, ushering in a new selection of hair artists to be honoured and inducted into to the brand’s talent network.  

Ever on brand, Aveda showcases its philanthropic nature, environmental focus and global family, casting the spotlight on the culture connection and community they foster with the theme for this year’s Color Harmony, ‘Worldhood’.

The annual event is where Aveda shines as a diverse and comprehensive brand, rewarding submissions that showcase the technical and creative prowess of each entrant.

Playing with the theme ‘Worldhood’ entrants sought to evoke a “visual culture born of self-expression and creative play for a new globally connected reality”.

Creating their interpretations of global and social trends alongside Aveda’s imitable brand ethos, the finalists incorporated this DNA with creative mastery through their editorial offerings.

Three talented finalists will represent and compete for the crown across the four respective categories; Digital, New Talent, Colour Harmony and Editorial.

Winners will receive prizes including a return trip to Aveda Master Jam 2020 in Japan, a hair kit valued at $1,500 and a trade featured editorial.
