It’s official: the winners for the 2022 North American Styling Awards have been announced! The Professional Beauty Association revealed the well-deserved winners of the prestigious beauty competition on April 3rd at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, California.
Hosted by the dynamic couple Rodrick Samuels and NAHA Moment 2021 winner Lauren Moser Samuels, the 2022 ceremony featured dazzling artistic performances from Silas Tsang, Truss Professional, and Aveda. Of course, the main event of the hair festivities was the celebration of the industry’s top artists and their creativity.
For this year’s show, finalists competed across 15 categories of excellence spanning hair and beauty with the hopes of taking home the coveted trophy. To be considered for the competition, industry creatives were tasked with submitting their best work to be judged by a panel of blind judges.
“We were thrilled to have such talent and inspiration at NAHA this year,” says PBA Executive Director Nina Daily. “Rodrick and Lauren, along with all our NAHA winners and finalists, continue to amaze us every year, truly elevating the industry.
Now, without further ado, see all the winners below (and their award-winning looks)!
