Adelaide Hairdresser Uros Mikic Wins 2016 Hair Expo Men’s Hairdresser of the Year!

Uros Mikic, Creative Director of Adelaide’s Kinky Curly Straight hair salon has been announced the winner of the 2016 Hair Expo Men’s Hairdresser of the Year award.

Over 900 guests from Australia & New Zealand’s hairdressing royalty gathered on Monday 13th June at Melbourne’s Exhibition and Convention Centre, to witness the industry’s most influential and talented personalities crowned the winners of the prestigious 2016 Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards.

The only South Australian hairdresser to feature among the winners, this win places Uros amongst the best in Australian hairdressing and is a true acknowledgement of the appeal of his work globally, cementing his place as one of Australia and the world’s most influential hair artists.

“This award will forever have a very special place in my heart. Men’s styling and grooming has always been dear to me, as it’s where I first started in my career and now to win the prestigious Hair Expo Men’s Hairdresser/Barber of the Year is truly a dream come true.” Says Uros.

“I loved creating this collection which was shot overseas with the revered Andrew O’Toole, and I love the creativity and challenges Men’s hairdressing can deliver. It means so much to me to be recognised by the Australian hairdressing community and be inducted into the exclusive club of Hair Expo winners.”

Celebrating a landmark 31 years, the Hair Expo awards represent the longest running and most respected hair accolades within the Southern Hemisphere. As the highest level of industry excellence within the region, the awards honour both creative and business talent, attracting the cream of Australian and New Zealand hairdressing. www.hairexpoaustralia.com

Uros’ winning collection Luxe showcases his signature creative hair artistry, underpinned by a simple understated elegance, with a luxurious edge. His work has proven to set standards in hair fashion in Australia and around the world.
“Luxurious, elegant, expensive; that is the inspiration behind LUXE. The Luxe man is whom we aspire to be – confident in his skin, poised with his emotions, gracious in company, a flame to whom, like moths, we are drawn. The hair is worn as a proud jewel to top off my man’s looks. Dabbling in sleek for elegant dinners and playful and voluminous for parties with the guys.”

Next on the agenda for Uros is time in New York to complete an exclusive Train the Trainer course with MATRIX Global before returning to take the MATRIX Playground road show around Australia.
