Jessica Fair is the winner of CosmoProf’s student hair talent competition, Fashion Frenzy. Fair hails from Jersey City, NJ and attends Empire Beauty School of Lehigh Valley. Also, students had a chance to work backstage with Rocky Vitelli of Farouk Systems, and join mentoring sessions with Vitelli and Fabio Sementilli from P&G Professional. The grand prize is a $500 CosmoProf shopping spree, a photo shoot with Babak and Luis Alvarez for the cover of the CosmoProf September shopping guide, an invitation to attend the Intercoiffure Atelier in New York this fall, and a gift bag with tools and product. Finalists also received an invitation to attend Aquage Master Class Academy, a mentoring breakfast with Chris and Sonya Dove, tools and product.
“We are so excited to see new talent come to life during this competition each year,” says Carolyn Corporon, CosmoProf vice-president of marketing. “Watching the creativity that Jessica and the other contestants presented throughout the competition was inspiring and fun at the same time.”
Fashion Frenzy contestants first submitted three hairstyle images on mannequins and online voting determined the finalists. During the second round, three finalists were selected by popular online vote and an additional three from the CosmoProf judging panel to go head-to-head for a live-on stage competition at Intercoiffure Spring Symposium.
