HALF of the prizes in a na­tional hairstyling com­pe­ti­tion were won by Dunedin stylists.

The TrendVi­sion Awards were an­nounced at Te Papa, in Welling­ton, on Sun­day.

Zaibatsu Hair Art won the New Zealand Sa­lon award.

‘‘It was awe­some,’’ sa­lon owner Jaimee Smith said.

The sa­lon also won the award last year, she said.

An ap­pren­tice at the sa­lon, Jack­son Rodeka, won the New Zealand Ap­pren­tice award.

‘‘He has only been a hair­dress­ing for a year. It was pretty cool,’’ Ms Smith said.

Ms Smith won sil­ver in the cre­ative vi­sion cat­e­gory.

She won gold in the cat­e­gory last year and rep­re­sented New Zealand at the In­ter­na­tional TrendVi­sion Award in Barcelona.

The gold win­ner of the cre­ative vi­sion cat­e­gory was Moha Hair­dress­ing co­owner Kylie Hayes.

Mrs Hayes, whose sa­lon is in South Dunedin, will rep­re­sent New Zealand in Lon­don next month.

She rep­re­sented New Zealand at the event in 2010 and 2015.

‘‘It is con­sid­ered the Olympics of hair­dress­ing,’’ Mrs Hayes said.
