The Hair & Beauty SA Competitions have been running for nine years and we aim to find the most innovative and original fashions leading into the new seasons for both hair and makeup trends. It extends to Make-up fashion, body art and fantasy for the more creative. More than 200 entries have emerged from around South Australia for the Pre-Done and State Hair & Make-up Competitions supported by local and interstate sponsors. The Pre-done Awards allow competitors to have the opportunity to create their masterpieces in the salon before coming to the event. It's a fantastic chance for the young or new competitors to get attention from the industry.

THE LIVE COMPETITIONS (previously the State Comps) provide the opportunity to see peers in action as they battle it in 16 sections out on the floor for first places to gain the prestigious awards.

1.  ‘Pam Lavender -Senior of the Year Award 

2.  Paul Sherman -Trainee of the Year Award

The judging panel comprises of Adelaide’s top leading stylists and make-up artists. So the top place awards are received by hairdressers and make-up artists who create outstanding work that support a total fashion look, is original and both innovative with a commercial edge.


The competitions are run by a group of passionate industry professionals and volunteers for the benefit of the industry. This could only be possible with the support from our sponsors, and together this provides a great platform for students, apprentices, careers and business to showcase their talents and be recognized and awarded for their achievements.

We are always on the look out for active industry people to come on Board the Competition Committee, so if you love working in a community atmosphere and have a professional approach come and join the Dynamic team and give us call.

These awards continue to demonstrate the exceptional standard of Hairdressing & Make-up Artistry in South Australia. Not only have last year’s winners proven themselves to be among the best in business, but they have shown an astute interpretation of trends to create fashion-forward looks that will influence hair styles, colours and make-up. The Comps are continuing to evolve with the make-up special effects and body art growing and new sections such as the Evening Gala, Runway Catwalk Spring Summer/16-17 and the three new nail sections.
