2011 North American Hair Styling Awards (NAHA)

The North American Hair Styling Awards (NAHA) went down on July 31st at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as part of the PBA Beauty week.   We couldn’t make it down there this year, but we’re always excited to see the truly inspiring work that is being recognized.

Congratulations to Dimitrios Tsioumas who came away with two awards.  Babak was definitely the most winning photographer, followed up by Ara Sassoonian.
