The North American Hairstyling Awards represents the pinnacle of achievement in all categories of hairdressing, texture included. Jasmine Gibbs of The Cutting Edge Salon in Brooklyn, New York was named Texture Stylist of the Year at the 2012 NAHA ceremony held July 22 in Las Vegas. Her exquisite entries won the day, but she had some very worth competition.
