Congratulations to all of the Sebastian What’s Next Awards finalists, who will be competing live on Sunday, February 21st in Miami to take home a winning title. Special shout outs go to our Canadian talent, Safina Aboaen and John-Paul Colombo from the Student Category and Affiliated Artist Category respectively.
The Sebastian What’s Next competition is divided between three categories: Students, Professionals and the newly added Affiliated Talent. All entrants take inspiration from a Sebastian collection–this year’s collection being Metamorphik–and show the judges their best hairstyle interpretations. With creative energies flowing, it’s a tough competition!
