Last night, yours truly slipped down the rabbit hole that is the North American Hairstyling Awards. While definitely not DPAGES’ normal fare, this photographic beauty competition showcases the work of some of the industry’s great talents, and there is no denying that these hairstylists are turning out true works of art. From gravity-defying feather-filled bouffants, to dos comprised of fiber optic lighting – these award winning styles are guaranteed to make your topknot and beige highlights feel like a travesty of underachievement. One can only ask, why on earth are we not all walking around with gorgeous CMYK highlights? I’ll leave you to wrangle with that thought as you take in the fabulousness. Hope you enjoy!
