Sydney hairdresser Kobi Bokshish has been crowned the Global Hairdresser of the Year at The Code Team (TCT) International Awards of Hairdressers and Makeup Artists. The illustrious award was formally presented to Kobi at an awards ceremony that took place in the Spanish Canary Islands on 3 November.
Kobi, who is a Matrix artist and finalist for Hair Expo’s Australian Hairdresser of the Year Award, was invited to enter the exclusive closed category alongside international heavyweights like 2017 British hairdresser of the year, Sally Brooks; and Irish hairdresser Shay Dempsey.
“It is a huge honour to be recognised through this award. I am fortunate to have been blessed with energy, determination and passion, and I spend most of my waking existence channelling these elements to inspire those around me”, said Kobi about the win.
As part of his involvement in the awards representing Australia, Kobi also created an editorial photo shoot for Spanish trade mag Showroom and presented a hair show at LIVE018, a hair-fashion education event.
