Matrix Collective Collection Competition 2022


At Matrix we believe in uniting and celebrating all hairdressers no matter your experience level. The Matrix Collective Competition provides the opportunity for ALL to showcase their unique colour and styling talents. Open to all hairdressers, it is free to enter and only requires a smartphone photo of a model showcasing your most creative look.

Our judges Mana Dave (Multi award-winning Haircolour Specialist in NZ), John Spanton (Multi award-winning Hairdresser & master Colorist at Angelo Seminara Hair Salon, UK) and David Mannah (Publisher of Industry publication, The Journal Magazine, Multi award-winning photographer & Owner AHFA) will select five finalists from each state. These finalists will then compete in a re-creation live finals event on Monday 27 June 2022, by recreating and showcasing their entry look. The winners will then be announced LIVE on Sunday 10 July 2022.

The winners will all be flown to a top secret photoshoot location for the incredible opportunity to be mentored by Kobi Bokshish, Matrix Australia Creative Director. Kobi will guide the winners at a shoot to be featured in a 4-page spread with FRANKIE magazine!

Finally, a big thank you to our state finalists and all hairdressers who entered. We look forward to running the Matrix Collective Competition again in 2023 and seeing more of the creativity our Matrix family has to offer!
