About the Awards

The ALFAPARF Milano Fantastic Hairdresser Awards is the biggest awards ceremony in the Irish Hairdressing industry, attended by more hairdressing professionals than any other. It is a celebration of the creative artistry and commercial acumen that lies at the heart of successful hairdressing, and provides a national platform that both recognises and inspires being the very  best.

An Opportunity to Shine

The awards, now in their ninth year, give stylists and salons an opportunity to showcase their creative expertise and technical excellence through six creative and three business awards and an artistic award: the ALFAPARF Milano Inixia Photographic Award. Almost 400 hairdressers from all over Ireland dedicated months of hard work preparing their entries for these ten categories.

A Sincere Thank you

A sincere thank you to all those who attended and participated in the ALFAPARF Milano Fantastic Hairdresser Awards 2018, the largest and most widely anticipated awards ceremony in the hairdressing industry on the island of Ireland. This year marked a step change in the evolution of the awards, as we moved to a new location, one of Ireland’s most iconic event centres, the RDS in Ballsbridge, Dublin. Long associated with some of Ireland’s most high profile and prestigious events, it also became the home of the 2018 ALFAPARF Milano Fantastic Hairdresser Awards, as we strove to cater for the ever-growing demand surrounding the AMFHA.

2018 also marked other significant developments in the evolution of the ALFAPARF Milano brand in Ireland, with the hugely successful relaunch of the much-loved SEMI DI LINO range, coupled with the long-awaited arrival of our fantastic new styling range, STYLE STORIES. The response to both has been incredible, far exceeding our already ambitious expectations.

In addition, 2018 saw the doors open of our new state-of-the-art, centre of excellence ACCADEMIA in the heart of Dublin. The eco-friendly designed 16,000 square foot education facility spans over four floors and offers the largest selection of technical and business education currently on offer within the Irish hairdressing industry, in line with our stated ambition to support and foster creative, technical and commercial excellence within our industry.
