We’re excited to announce the next theme in our “So You Think You Can Style?” contest series: Blonde Bombshell!
Whether it’s a platinum-blonde or blonde balayage, there are endless options for what’s considered “blonde.” Show us what you can come up with! We want to see which of your best blonde looks makes a statement.
Remember, while we love seeing the photos you submit from collections, this contest is all about variety. Feel free to submit looks taken in your chair, at home or in your salon’s designated Instagram area.
With the Contessas finalist announcement just around the corner, we would like to remind you about not entering photos that have already been submitted for the 2018 Contessa Awards.
Now for some of the more technical details for those who may be first-time entrants…
You can read all of the official rules here, but just to get familiarized with the general structure of the contest, there are two rounds of judging. We’ll be accepting entries starting today, until Tuesday, October 17, 2017. Feel free to reach out to us should you have any issues with submission. Once entries close, we move onto the first round of judging. Finalists are determined by popular vote. (You may use this opportunity to encourage family, friends, colleagues and those on social media to vote for your entry!) At the end of the voting period, the top 50% of entries that have received the majority of votes, become our finalists, which move onto the second round of judging. This round includes a panel of judges at our offices that vote independently to therefore determine the first-, second- and third-place winners. The first-place winner will receive an online article, shoutouts on social media, a spot in our weekly newsletter and their winning work published in the next issue of Salon Magazine. In a nutshell, if our community doesn’t already know your name— they will after this!
Voting runs from October 20, 2017 to November 10, 2017. Finalists will be announced Tuesday, November 14 and the winner will be announced the following Tuesday, November 21.
So now that we’ve gotten all of that covered, it’s time get the creativity flowing!
