NEWS: SLC’s Lunatic Fringe Salon Wins Coveted North American Hairstyling Award (NAHA)

SLC’s Lunatic Fringe Salon Wins Coveted 
North American Hairstyling Award (NAHA)
August 11, 2012, Salt Lake City, UTAH – Lunatic Fringe won “Salon Team of the Year” in the prestigious North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) competition, beating out four other finalists. This award comes on the heels of Lunatic Fringe’s NAHA award win in the “Salon MBA” category in 2010. Lunatic Fringe also received nominations in the 2012 categories of “Avant Garde” and “Newcomer Stylist of the Year,” and individual Lunatic Fringe stylists have won various NAHA awards throughout the years.
NAHA is considered the Olympics of hairstyle awards in North America and is a pantheon to the artistry and creativity of individual hairstylists and entire salons. Winning an award is considered a great honor and career-distinguishing move.
For the Salon Team of the Year award, the Lunatic Fringe team was required to work together to submit five images of five different models, illustrating the team’s “diversity, versatility, creativity and expertise in hairstyling.” A link to the winning five photos that garnered the award can be found at: http://www.probeauty.org/naha/winners-and-finalists/?category=ST&id=1473.
Lunatic Fringe’s Creative Director, Fumi Eguchi, is the photographer behind the winning images that resulted in this year’s award. An accomplished and award-winning hairstylist, Fumi trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in California and has opened two salons in Salt Lake City. Fumi has worked with Apollo Anton Ohno, Mandy Moore, and Andre and Masha Kirilinko. After turning to high-fashion photography, one of his images won the Vidal Sassoon ISSE competition in Long Beach, CA.
