ENTER NAHA NOW

NAHA REMIX

The world has made a shift to accommodate this complex time in all our lives, and so has NAHA. Life has been complicated for hairdressers this year and understand you may not be able to shoot new collections this season.


Announcing the NAHA Remix

For 2021, you can revisit and reinvent a previously entered collection. Everything looks different through the prism of today, so why not give your work a remake? Maybe your work was too ahead of its time, you applied too much filtering which made it hard to see the detail of the work, or your post-production work went a bit past the PBA guidelines. Whatever the reason, this is your chance – your second chance to take that collection that you know is NAHA quality, and give it a new life for 2021.

Here’s how you enter:

  • Find a previous collection from the past, that was not selected as a finalist
  • Make sure that collection follows the current category and overall NAHA rules and regulations
  • Touch up, update, remove and add filters if you like – keep in mind the NAHA photo manipulation rules
  • Select your below category and submit your collection remix by Nov 18, 2020
