L’Oréal Professionnel asked you to get inspired by the red carpet in our latest ‘So You Think You Can Style?’ Community Photo Contest.
Twelve contestants showed us their best celeb-inspired looks, and the voters and judges have chosen Kiersten Brooks of Yellow Orange Salon and Spa in Aurora as the first place winner! Brooks’ image will be featured in an upcoming issue of Salon Magazine, Salon Lookbook, and she will also receive Wild Stylers products and a $500 Visa/Mastercard gift card, courtesy of L’Oréal Professionnel.
“My inspiration came from watching how L’Oréal Professionnel leads hair fashion and I wanted to be a part of it, so I took a chance,” says Brooks on why she wanted to enter.
Brooks created her style using L’Oréal Professionnel Wild Stylers Scruff Me for volume and fullness, Constructor for soft hold and heat protection, and Next Day Hair on mid-lengths and ends to create piece-y fullness. “I love the final look because it’s so natural, soft and luminous.”
Brooks says she was inspired by Katy Perry’s colour and Gisele Bündchen’s beautiful hairstyles when she created her entry. “[Bündchen’s] ability to show the newest trends in fashion has always captured my attention and inspired me to use her as a reference when styling hair.”
Second place went to Cara Hearn, and Third Place to Kaleigh Thibeau. Congratulations to all the winners!
