Master Hairstylist of 2017:
It has been a world wind of fun, talent and honor these past few months for the AFH team and our very own, Annie Fisher! After taking home the award of Master Hairstylist of the year – we can only expect so much more success to come.
As many of you may know, Annie is a full-time stylist and owner of AFH Salon, located in the quant center of Madison Valley in Seattle, WA. The win for her was well expected after being nominated for the award 3 years in a row and our team couldn’t be more proud.
This year of the 4th annual NorthWest Hairstyling Awards to honor hairstylists, make up artists, fashion designers, models and photographers in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Salons around the greater city areas of these states are chosen to participate and come together in celebration through hair show competition and fashion show.
For this year, Fisher went 3 different models with a cohesive theme of: beauty- strength- and a monochromatic palette. Embodying the vibe of the Game of Thrones character, Khaleesi.
After creating each look on her own with both cut and color for all 3 of the model’s hairs, it was easy to recruit who was to join her on set. Joining her on the set for her pieces, Annie was able to collaborate with long time business and close friends with James Chang for photography, Kim Brooks on wardrobes, and Cass Bledsoe completing the look with make-up. Locals models featured in Fisher’s looks were Erika, Anya and Hayley. Fisher was even welcomed by her daughter, Taelor helping as a set assistant and followed by another of our own full-time stylist, Kennedy Trisler.
“I am so grateful for the industry friends who collaborated with me to help make my vision come to life.” Annie Fisher
Each hair piece was finished before the day of shooting and with outfit choice and make up, Fisher was able to make her visions comes to life. Not only creating each look, she also worked alongside the directing of what she envisioned for each photo and collaborated with each stylist.
Without the help and support of colleagues, friends and clients, this journey wouldn’t of been half as fun and challenging as it came. Taking the time out of her busy schedule of both running and working at the salon, Annie was able to channel her creative energy and gracefully complete all the looks in one day.
