Lisa Muscat has won her 2nd consecutive New Creative Force title at the 2014 Hair Expo awards, creating Australian hairdressing history by becoming the first hairdresser to be a three-time winner of the New Creative Force award.
Held on Monday 9th June, the Hair Expo Australia Awards Gala Dinner is the most prestigious awards event on the Australian hairdressing industry’s calendar. A star-studded event, Lisa’s success was witnessed by over 1500 of the Australian hairdressing industry’s elite at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Presenting and educating on the world stage to international audiences in the UK, Spain, India, and NZ, and hair directing or working backstage at local and international Fashion Weeks and on the X Factor, Lisa has further established herself as one of the most talented and respected hairdressers in Australia.
According to Lisa, winning New Creative Force is an inspirational achievement, as the award is judged 50% Photo shoot, and 50% written submission; a collation of successes and work throughout the past 12 months awards period. It also demonstrates her astute ability to conceptualise a collection and execute her vision with a creative flair well beyond her years, whilst clearly understanding the synergy between hair & fashion.
“Winning this award for the 3rd time is unbelievable as I was nominated against 3 other extremely talented and passionate hairdressers,” says Lisa. “To know I am the only person in Australian hairdressing history to win this award 3 times is so humbling but a testament to my hard work and continuing journey of being the best I can be.”
“I am so proud of this collection and how far I have grown since my first photo shoot and I am sure this will provide many more wonderful opportunities.”
