MANE Hair Hero Awards 2021
Not all heroes wear capes, some come in recyclable bottles with the superpower to tame even the wildest manes. There’s a world of products to choose from and we wanted to separate the best from the very best, which is why this year we’ve decided to start a new tradition: the MANE Hair Hero Awards.
We’ll be celebrating the miracle-makers when it comes to healthier, stronger and shinier hair - no matter your hair type. We hope our awards will also serve as a go-to guide if you’re unsure what products you should be reaching for or the ultimate gift guide for someone else. We’re excited! We hope you are too!... so without further ado, the winners are:
The 2021 Icon
K18 - The newcomer that’s rewritten the hair rulebook. The revolutionary K18 Peptide goes directly to the hair’s core, replacing lost amino acids & regenerating bonds - repairing hair from the inside out.
KEVIN MURPHY BLOW.DRY - A collection of tailored heat-activated style extending sprays - for the blow-wave of your dreams. We’ve had a sneak peek in the salon, watch this space for their highly anticipated NZ release!
Best Eco-Friendly Care
RabbitRabbit Green Tea Shampoo Bar - Packed with nourishing natural and organic ingredients, minus the bottle. Once the bar is used it’s gone, zero waste!
Hottest Hair Tool
Tidal Hair Waver= - The tool that’s given us serious ‘gram-worthy hair. The tidal waver has fast become a must-have with its large triple barrels which create the biggest most beautiful waves.
Hero for Dry Hair
KEVIN MURPHY HYDRATE.ME.MASQUE - Hydration doesn’t get more intense than this. Vitamin-charged micro-capsules explode upon contact to deliver moisture for deeply conditioned hair.
Hero for Volume
KEVIN MURPHY ANTI.GRAVITY - An oil-free volumiser and texturiser that creates bigger, thicker-looking hair instantly.
Hero for Damaged Hair
OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oil - We’ve (almost) all heard of Olaplex by now, but No. 7 is a little different. It’s a highly-concentrated, weightless restorative styling oil, which not only repairs damage but provides heat protection up to 232°C.
Hero for Blondes
KEVIN MURPHY SUGARED.ANGEL - This year creamy beige blondes back are back in a big way. Sugared.Angel works to mute unwanted warmth while enhancing existing tones, creating luminous toffee and vanilla reflects.
Hero for Colour Care
KEVIN MURPHY ANGEL.WASH & RINSE - The delicate recovery system heals colour damage, while tangerine peel oil protects against colour-fading environmental stressors. Plus rumour is Kylie Minogue adores it!
Hero for Curls
ELEVEN Australia Keep My Curl Defining Cream - A cream that continues to impress with its defining and enhancing abilities (think luscious curls without the crunch).
