If you’re a hairstylist that’s been looking for the perfect opportunity to put your skills to the test, we have some good news for you: the North American Beauty Envision Awards is back and better than ever!

Wella Company’s Beauty Envision Awards is the ultimate competition for beauty and hair pros looking to elevate their skills and showcase their creativity. After an unprecedented year that brought challenges to our industry and the world, this competition is the chance for artists to come together and have their talents celebrated.

“We’re thrilled to host our premiere competition event for another year! This year’s theme — chrysalis. A chrysalis symbolizes the protective covering something or someone creates in order to protect themselves until they emerge into a new state of growth which so resonates right now for beauty professionals around the world and the Wella Company,” said Carole Protat, Sr. Director of Brand Education, Artists & Events. “Through a very uncertain year, salon professionals are coming together as stronger individuals, continuing to celebrate their craft despite all of the challenges they’ve endured.”

On August 15th, 2021, finalists will compete live at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas (pending all COVID-19 regulations) to showcase their talents across 13 diverse categories.
