The Paul Mitchell 2013 hair awards at the Baxter last Sunday night proved to be a cutting edge extravaganza. Yazo 4 Hair is the best little hair house in town, with Tony Martin and his team walking off with four of the five awards. Tony took two awards – one for “Best Show” and the other, “The Boyz” award. Kevin Epstein, well known for his creative and innovative hair-raising stuff won the Avant Garde presentation. Amina, the salon’s up and coming stylist, won the “Young Blood” award. The stylist of the year award on the night went to Frank Fowden. Frank, an iconic hairdresser, also put on a spectacular show.
Tony, Kevin and Frank are creative masters in their trade. It’s not just about hair, it’s about, style, shape, attitude and oomph! This is what they were judged on. Setting a trend and staying ahead of the wave in hair is what makes a good stylist. It takes years of experience to achieve and maintain the right formula and mix in a market that is a multi-million $ business.
