Sassy Stylist Wins The Ultimate Acclaim

Bronwyn Illingworth surrounded by two of her creations

A New Zealand hairdresser has won the ultimate award at The Australian Hair Expo Awards - the ‘Oscars’ of the Australasian hair industry.

Bronwyn Illingworth was awarded the prestigious title of New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year Award 2005 for the second time, having won the same award last year. The Australian Hair Expo Awards represent the pinnacle of hairdressing excellence and an award win is the highest accolade, which puts Bronwyn right at the top of a very competitive industry in New Zealand.

Bronwyn has an extensive CV spanning nearly 20 years of both international and domestic acclaim; award wins, pivotal roles in global hair events, and is currently the joint managing director of Toni & Guy in New Zealand. She is widely admired for her brilliant vision, creating stunning hair designs across the world. She is an international leader and innovator within Toni & Guy hairdressing including extensive international travel to participate in fashion shows, photo and video shoots, hair shows and seminars.

Bronwyn comments, “I am thrilled with this Award. I work hard because I am passionate about what I do. I love the thrill and challenge of creating new styles and designs that not only look good but make people feel good. I never look at the hair in isolation - I know that in order for a style to work it has to involve the style and personality of the person while applauding recent trends both in the media and on the street.”

Bronwyn is currently involved in the show “10 Years Younger in 10 Days” screening on TV One and had been hairdresser to a number of celebrities during her time overseas including Robbie Williams, Zoe Ball, the boys from Blur and a number of Coronation Street stars.
