Colour Harmony Awards 2019

The Aveda Colour Harmony Awards
honour creativity and technical skill.

The winners are the hair colourists whose work best reflects the competition theme, the spirit of Aveda, and the connection between hair cut, colour, styling and make-up.

The theme for Colour Harmony 2019 is

The evolution of visual culture born of self-expression and creative play for a new globally connected reality. Living in a world of global and social trends, we are all exposed to the same things, however we all interpret them differently and make them our own.

Create an image that that best captures your approach to WORLDHOOD.
