The Afro Hair Awards is Kenya’s largest, most inclusive beauty event, offering unlimited networking, education, and professional growth opportunities to all sectors of the Hair industry.
Most people working in the salons are also not trained and the few who are trained do not have opportunities to show case their prowess and inspire the rest. Therefore, there is a gap to create a healthy competitive environment that shall trigger hard work from every quarter of this industry in order to instill professionalism.

The Hair Awards institute has therefore decided to launch an awards scheme that shall be a platform for the many hairdressers to showcase their prowess in the trade as well as business acumen for salon owners.
This awards ceremony is uniquely geared towards raising the hair industry standards, instilling professionalism and creating a strong bond between product manufacturers, salon owners and hair stylists.

This event has and continues to involve international celebrated hair stylists from the US, UK and other parts of the world as judges as well as showcase what they do best during the awards gala night. This award has a nomination and judging process that observes the integrity of ensuring an extremely fair platform for all the stylists who participate.

Nominees of the Hair Awards go through mentorship program before the competition to ensure the best is delivered on the day of the competition. After the awards, trainings skewed to develop winners’ business acumen, technical capability and identification of growth opportunities in their industry are done for the winners to ensure a complete change in might set, personal and business growth.

As an awards scheme, we take pride in executing our responsibility in driving growth in an industry that employs thousands of youths.
We will continue to put all efforts possible to ensure that, The Afro Hair Awards lives long after we are gone.
