Elle Schoemaker of Queensland’s Stelios Papas Toowong took home two trophies at the 2019 Hair Expo Awards – Creative Force of the Year and Queensland Hairdresser of the Year – both for this evocative collection titled Quintessence. The collection features a soft, beige background and complimentary peach-toned makeup which juxtaposes the intense texture, intricacy, and Avant Garde styling of the hair looks. The Quintessence collection is a true representation of bold, creative, precision styling and technical skill.
