The Professional Beauty Association (PBA), producers of the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA), is proud to announce the return of Giuliana Rancic as host of the 2014 Awards Ceremony. Joined by husband Bill Rancic, this dynamic duo is sure to bring the charm, energy and excitement to the 25th Anniversary celebration.

Giuliana and Bill are one of America’s most beloved couples. Each week on E! the couple is watched by millions on their hit reality show, “Giuliana & Bill”, which recently debuted its seventh season – the highest rated season to date.  In addition to their work together, Giuliana and Bill are successful business professionals in their own right. Giuliana is an entertainment journalist, fashion and beauty expert and television personality. She anchors E! News, hosts the brand new interview series “Beyond Candid with Giuliana” and co-stars on E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team. She has attended every mega-event in the entertainment industry, interviewed hundreds of Hollywood’s stars and launched her own clothing collection for HSN.

Bill hosted the nationally-syndicated program “America Now” in partnership with ITV and Raycom Media.  He currently appears as host for the new Food Network show from the producers of “Chopped”, entitled “Kitchen Casino”.  He makes regular appearances on numerous daytime broadcast and cable television programs such as “Today,” “The View,” “Rachael Ray” and various CNBC programs to talk to viewers about business and entrepreneurship.  With tremendous experience that ranges from Main Street to Wall Street, Bill speaks to senior leadership of companies throughout the world and explores important topics, such as working professional relationships and surviving the daily ethical challenges in business.

The couple is incredibly philanthropic, involved in such charitable causes as Bright Pink, Operation Smile, Dress for Success, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls (Chicago), the National Institutes of Health (renal cell cancer division), among many others.  In March 2013, Giuliana launched an initiative she created called Fab-U-Wish, granting fabulous-themed wishes to women undergoing treatment for breast or ovarian cancer (fabuwish.org).  Bill also travels regularly on goodwill missions to build homes in Haiti.

NAHA 2014 will be held Sunday, July 13, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event can also be seen live via streaming video at www.modernsalon.com/naha.
