The 2021 NAHA Finalists Have Been Announced —See Them All Here

01/18/2021

The 2021 North American Hairstyling Awards nominations are in and while the actual awards ceremony is still months away, we got a first look at all the incredible creatives who are up for awards during the salon professional industry’s biggest night.

The Professional Beauty Association, the producer of NAHA, announced the 2021 finalists on January 14th during a presentation that was live-streamed on Facebook, in partnership with Schwarzkopf Professional. This year’s finalist candidates span 14 categories of excellence across  hair and makeup.

As any industry professional knows, being nominated for a NAHA award is kind of a big deal! After all, it’s considered to be the most prestigious professional beauty competition in North America, honoring the talent and creativity of the salon industry’s top artists. In order to be considered, each year, industry creatives submit their best work for it to be judged by a blind panel of judges.

So, who will be named a winner when the ceremony kicks off in Las Vegas on August, 29, 2021? We will have to wait and see!

Until then, read on to see all the nominees for each category.
