Ammon Carver, L’ANZA Healing Haircare Global Creative Director and New York salon owner, has won two North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA): Master Stylist of the Year and Salon Team of the Year. Carver used L’ANZA Healing Haircare products exclusively to create all submitted collection looks.
The NAHA wins were announced at the star-studded Professional Beauty Association Awards ceremony hosted by Alan Cumming, Tony Award-winning actor, at Cosmoprof USA in Las Vegas this weekend.
The highly competitive NAHA Awards are “the biggest night of the year in hairdressing” and as the hair industry’s most coveted and prestigious award, considered the Oscars of Hairdressing.
They are attended annually by movers and shakers in the professional hair industry, heads of all major brands, press, and hairstylists from all over the nation.
One of the most highly regarded stylists in the industry, Ammon Carver has been previously nominated 5 times by the North American Hairstyling Awards for multiple categories. Ammon Carver’s exceptional work has been featured in the pages of top magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair as well as American Salon, Modern Salon, Beauty Launchpad and Estetica. His celebrity clientele includes Kate Beckinsale, Molly Sims, Amanda Seyfried, Kirsten Dunst and Leighton Meester among many others.
“Originality and inspiration are hallmarks of the NAHA awards, more than any other in our industry,” said Ammon. “It is an honor to receive two awards, and especially gratifying for the team itself to achieve such a strong win as a first-time entry. I am very proud to have won the Master Stylist of the Year award, and give special thanks to L’ANZA Healing Haircare for all their support, and unique products that allowed us to create with an unfettered artistic vision.”
