Recipient of the 2013 Beautiful Humanitarian Award Mario Lopez will host the famous North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA), and media mogul Arianna Huffington will serve as the 2013 keynote speaker during the annual PBA Business Forum.


Mario Lopez will be hosting the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) and is the 2013 Beautiful Humanitarian Award recipient.

Lopez achieved celebrity status as a young man and is most well known today as host of Extra and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew. He is deeply involved in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), among other charitable initiatives. Lopez’s charisma, personality and infectious energy will undoubtedly add to the excitement of the NAHA 2013 Ceremony, while his charitable works make him the perfect recipient of the Beautiful Humanitarian Award.


Arianna Huffington is the keynote speaker at this year's PBA Business Forum during PBA Beauty Week 2013.

As the president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, a nationally syndicated columnist, author of thirteen books and two-time inductee on TIME Magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people, Huffington is truly an icon in the media and business world. During her keynote address, From Politics to the Board Room: Fearless Leadership, Huffington will discuss how difficult times can be turned into an opportunity for growth-both personally and professionally.
