The North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) honor top hairstylists and beauty professionals each year in an exclusive awards ceremony. The NAHA award is the culmination of incredible artistic talent, countless hours of hard work, sacrifice, and is ranked as the most prestigious award in the industry.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is NAHA’s highest honor recognizing exceptional contributions to the advancement of the hair and beauty industry.  This year, the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) is proud to honor internationally acclaimed World Master Hair Designer, educator, artistic director, executive and salon owner, Dwight Miller with the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award. As a stylist, educator, salon owner and past NAHA Multi-Cultural Hair winner, Miller has inspired innovative trends and techniques that constantly transcend benchmarks in beauty.

After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1964, Miller chose a career in the professional beauty industry and graduated from Comer & Doran Beauty School in San Diego, CA. He began his career in Hollywood and has achieved great success; he is now celebrating 50 years in the beauty industry. Miller has gone on to become one of the most admired hair artists today. He has helped revolutionize the industry and has been at the forefront of major hair trends and techniques, like the Sculpture Pin Curl of Marinello-Comer in Hollywood. Miller continues to be an influential leader and has encouraged countless stylists to maintain their creativity while continuing to pursue a career they love.

Miller will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s NAHA Awards Ceremony on July 13, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as part of NAHA’s 25th Anniversary Celebration.
