There are some people who are destined to stand out in the world of hair. They are genuine creators who seek a deeper level of artistic stimulus so that they, in turn, can invent and inspire. Winner of the 2015 and 2016 AHFA Avant Garde Hairdresser of the Year, Nadia Semanic is one of those artists.
At the age of 25, the intelligence and thoughtfulness with which Semanic approaches her craft are genuinely visionary. Unassuming and almost unaffected by her accolades, Semanic is a purist. Always searching for things that enrich her mentally, emotionally, and physically; the result is an unquestionable originality and a conceptual process that belies her years.
Education is a predominant part of Semanic’s existence - Authenticating a truly passionate spirit, she is committed to resourcing as much personal training and development as she can. Observing the more traditional social dalliances of other young people, Semanic is proud of her choice to make her career the captain of her life, as she believes her happiest moments are those spent surrounded by hair.
