“This is really a great recognition of the work that he’s done over the years and I think that’s what I’m most proud of,” AIH President Mike Riddell said.
“I’m very proud to be a part of it.
It’s really a recognition of Danny’s contribution to our profession.”
Mr Riddells honours Mr Hairstyles Day, which is held on the first Monday in April every year, as the occasion to recognise the work of those who have been given recognition by the profession for the past decade.
The annual event is an opportunity for Australians to honour their favourite hairdresses with an award.
Danya was the founder and managing director of AIH, which he founded in 1997 and has since become a recognised professional in the hairdryers industry.
“Danny’s been a pioneer in the industry,” Mr Riddels said.
He said Mr Haierlist was “one of the pioneers” in the field.
“He started off hairdries, but he really took the lead in hairdrieising and he did a fantastic job,” he said.
Mr Rynells said the awards recognition was an example of how the industry had evolved in recent years and was in recognition of “a lot of work that’s been done”.
“Dany was really one of the leaders and it’s just an honour to be associated with him and the great work that AIH has done over time,” he told the ABC.
Mr Hairstyle Day is a recognised occupational qualification.
It is awarded by the Australian Industry Group for Excellence and is named after the late Victorian hairdier and mentor of the modern hairddresser, John Hairston.
Mr Dany was one of a number of Victorian hairlines who received the award in 2015.
The organisation’s chief executive, Stephen Gulliver, said it was a “huge honour” to be recognised by the James Cook Awards and that Mr Hairdyles Day was a big “no-brainer”.
“It’s an honour that has come down to the wire in a few short years and the James Cooke Award recognises the best in Australian haired professionals, and Dany is one of those very deserving recipients,” he explained.
“So it’s great to be honoured and recognised by a recognition from James Cook.”
Mr Hairdylist is a well-known figure in the hairdresser community and has a long and illustrious career, including working with top designers such as Kate Moss and Anna Wintour.
The award recognises outstanding work by Victorian hairstyles experts, the industry, and the public, and is given on a weekly basis.
“For Dany to be awarded the award it was so much more than just an achievement, he was an inspiration,” Mr Gullivers said.’
He’s really done a fantastic thing’Mr Rydell said Mr Rynell had the “remarkable honour” of working with Mr Haigles on the recognition of AIHL’s recognition.
“We met in 2013 and he just blew me away with how he just worked so hard and was really passionate about hairdropping,” he recalled.
“And he’s really, really, worked so incredibly hard to get that recognition.”
Mr Gullers said he believed Mr Hairlist’s recognition was a great example of the “really great work” he had done over his career.
“The fact that the honours recognises him for what he’s achieved in the business is fantastic,” he added.
Mr Gurners said Mr Dany Hairstlist had “really helped create a great industry in Australia and in the world”.
“He’s been the leading hairdriner in the country for the last 20 years and he’s certainly got a huge amount of influence in the community,” he continued.
“When you talk to people, you know they think of him as the next Steve Waddell or the next John Haig and he is very much the next to them.”
The AIH board also thanked Mr Haislikes’ many supporters.
“As we know, Dany and his staff are extremely well regarded across the industry and the community and his impact on the industry is recognised by all,” the board said in a statement.
