Wahroonga is now home to the Australian Hair Fashion Awards’ Australian Hairdresser of the Year with é Salon’s Creative Director, Emiliano Vitale, winning the coveted title at a star-studded industry gala event at the Ivy Grand Ballroom.
Judged by a panel of the UK’s leading hairdressers, Emiliano’s winning collection, Cryptogram, translates international hair fashion trends into wearable hairstyles and looks and was evaluated on it’s creative direction, inspirational effect, superb imagery and consumer credibility.
Crytogram takes the form of three different influences from futuristic pop culture, to tribal warriors to geometric forms creating the key references of Superhero, Tribal, and Rubic, to form one enigma in hair, which is Cryptogram.
“It was a true honour to be nominated a finalist in the AHFAs, but to win the esteemed title of Australian Hairdresser of the Year, is truly humbling and mind blowing,” says Emiliano. “Having my work judged by some of the greatest hairdressers in the UK, and the world, and to have my collection deemed to be fashion-forward, on-trend and of world-class standard is fantastic.”
With so many award credits already to his name, Emiliano’s Australian Hairdresser of the Year win, is the epitome of a stunning career within the hairdressing industry which has taken him all over the world presenting in Asia, Spain, Russia, the UK, and America.
