Award Winning Education

Consistently recognized for excellence
DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERS

Since its humble beginnings in 1989, NAHA finalists and industry elite have brought this iconic photographic beauty competition to new heights year after year. NAHA continues to recognize the beauty industry’s most talented artists and advance the careers of stylists around the world.

While attending school, our students have the opportunity to compete for the NAHA Student Hairstylist of the Year award. The North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) is the most prestigious photographic beauty competition in North America, celebrating the artistry and skill of the professional salon industry. Each year, individuals are recognized in 13 categories of excellence during a star-studded Awards Ceremony. Photography Babak
