State Finals Digital Live Event

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.

Entries open on the 1st of January, 2021 and close on the 30th of April, 2021. Our judges Kristina Russell (Multi award-winning Haircolour Specialist and Educator), Malisa Masci (2020 AHFA Artistic Art Team of the Year Winner) and Alfredo Lewis (Matrix Vice President of Global Education) will select 5 individual finalists from each state.

Our state finals will take place on the 30th of May, 2021, where finalists will recreate their looks and showcase their work in a digital environment. 1 winner per state will be announced at the end of the night.

Our 5 winners will work and be mentored by Kobi Bokshish (Matrix Australia Creative Director) in June, 2021. They will be flown to Sydney where they will take part in a professional editorial photoshoot with a trade magazine, which includes PR, social media and marketing support, to showcase their creative work.

We look forward to running the Matrix Collective Competition again in 2021 and seeing more of the creativity our Matrix family has to offer!
