Derek Elvy Inducted into NZHA Industry Hall of Fame

A true artist who is always inspiring others around him

Derek Elvy is one of New Zealand's most awarded hairdressers, and has always been a leader in the field.  It seemed only fitting that he was the first to be inducted into the NZHA Industry Hall of Fame.

This night was made even more fabulous when Michael Beel won Hairdresser of the Year and Courtney Taylor took our Make Up Artist of the Year title. A night to be remembered.
