The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) hosted Cosmoprof North America and the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) on Sunday, July 12th at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. NAHA’s star-studded event drew more than 3,000 attendees, while thousands more tuned in online to watch PBA's live streaming broadcast. Add to that non stop social media engagement, photo sharing and 4,361 NAHA hashtaged pics and there is little doubt that the event lives up to its reputation as one of the industry's most important, talked about and watched happenings of the year.
American Salon was at both events in full force, engaging with leading stylists, artists, and educators along with a who's who list of brand ambassadors and executives. While there, American Salon's senior director of digital, Gordon Miller and digital editor, Kelsey Murray also interviewed some of our favorite professionals for upcoming episodes of the popular American Salon Artist Stories video series.
Murray also covered the glamorous NAHA red carpet – interviewing nominees as well as icons Tabatha Coffey, Charlie Price, Geno Stampora and Phillip Wilson. Click through our gallery to see some of our #americansalonselfies from NAHA and Cosmoprof NA.
