24 Oct HE DID IT! CHRIS IS AHFA NSW/ACT HAIRDRESSER OF THE YEAR 2022!
What a whirlwind month our amazing Chris Byrne has had! Fresh off the back of a whirlwind trip across Europe for international fashion weeks (more on that on the blog soon….), he has just taken out one of the biggest awards in the country at the Australian hair Fashion Awards 2022 (AHFA’s). As you can imagine, we could not be prouder!!
The Sloans Lane Cove and Sloans of North Sydney hair teams are no strangers to winning awards, but this is huge. Our incredible Lane Cove stylist Chris took home one of the most hotly anticipated wins of the night- AHFA NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year 2022!
Last Monday evening saw the hair industry celebrate with a gala award ceremony in Melbourne where Chris was honoured in front of all his peers, and with some of the Sloans team loudly cheering him on. The AHFA’s are the most influential photographic competition in Australia and for hair, make-up and fashion creatives it remains the one to win. With 100% impartiality and transparency, all creative categories are judged in London by the best names in the UK hairdressing industry, which means that Chris’s hard work was selected by some of the most famous and celebrated hairdressers in the world.
Chris is our fashion and editorial go-to and his list of accomplishments is too long to list here! He has just returned from working backstage at fashion weeks in Paris, Milan and London alongside Scott, where he put his creative skills to use. He has both directed and assisted on editorials and campaigns for L’Oreal Professionnel, EVO, MECCA X Urban Decay across titles including Stellar Magazine and The Journal. He has also created some exciting work for publications including Men In This Town, Fen Hong Se and Schon! Magazine. Plus let’s not forget he has also worked with The Veronicas and performers at the Mardi Gras and his diverse client list includes styling VIP’s including Rachel Finch, Julie Bishop and plenty of Lane Cove locals.
