On Tuesday, the Mongolian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists, Ministry of Food and Agriculture, and the Mongolian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists jointly organized the 23rd National Hairdressers, Cosmetologists, and Nail Artists Championship at the Wrestling Palace.
The Mongolian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists is the premiere association for professionals in the beauty, health and wellness industry in the Asia Pacific region, fostering camaraderie and sharing of trends and knowledge among beauty practitioners in Mongolia. On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, hairdressers, cosmetologists and nails artists from 21 provinces and eight districts were invited to compete in the championship.
According to the head of the association, Ts.Tsogzolmaa, “Over 200 hairdresser and cosmetologists competed in the 24 categories of the championship. The national championship hasn’t been organized on such a large scale before. The number of contestants increased dramatically this year. Within the frames of the 20th anniversary, we announced the competition to create artwork that can show the traditional Mongolian style of using artificial nails and hair. We then unveiled the newest creation and ideas during an exhibition.”
A judge of the championship and master hairdresser of Khos Shagai Salon, N.Altanshagai, commented, “Mongolian hairdressers won a lot of prizes from international competition this year. We have a chance to compete in the world by winning these [national] competitions. I think that’s why this year’s competitors increased. I am seeing that Mongolian hairdressers’ skill can meet international standard. Many young hairdressers and cosmetologists are competing this year. [The National Hairdressers, Cosmetologists, and Nail Artists Championship] is a good thing.”
The province with the best hairdressers and cosmetologists was given to Khusvgul Province, while Sukhbaatar District won the title of the district with the best hairdressers and cosmetologists.
