Don’t be surprised if you hear the sound of a champagne cork or two popping in Fruition this month because we are celebrating and then some! The salon is now the proud owner of not one but TWO major Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA’s) which were presented earlier this month at a ceremony in front of a sell out crowd of hairdressers, media and celebrities at Sydney’s iconic Luna Park
First up – the Fruition Creative Team, consisting of owner Craig Smith, salon manager Amanda Menz and stylists Zoey Davis, Emily Alterator and Cara Mio Robinson
The team wowed the judges with their very first photographic collection as a team, taking home the highly sought-after ARTISTIC TEAM OF THE YEAR trophy, beating tough competition from a number of very high profile salon teams across the country.
Meanwhile our gorgeous Amanda made it a double whammy for the salon, becoming QUEENSLAND HAIRDRESSER OF THE YEAR thanks to her stunning collection of images!
David Mannah, Creative Director of the AHFA’s and of The Journal Magazine which is our industry bible, had this to say about us “Hats off to Fruition for two great wins! Taking home Artistic Team of the Year with their very first team collection shows what happens when you put huge talent together with solid teamwork and great leadership”
We are so proud of all the guys here who have worked so hard over the last year as a team to achieve such amazing results both in the salon with their clients and on photographic shoots and in education seminars, so to be recognized by our peers and bring home these awards is the icing on the cake.
There is a quote we love which I think perfectly sums up our journey and we hope inspires you today:
“The distance between dreams and reality is called action”
The AHFA Artistic Team of the Year and the Queensland Hairdresser of the Year can’t wait to see you soon!
