In 2000, Cosmetologists Chicago inaugurated its STARS and RISING STARS Photo Competition and each year, hundreds of both established salon professionals and new comers enter this popular talent showcase. The finished looks in the “before and after” photo entries are judged on technical merit, execution, concept and suitability of the style to the category in which it is entered. A panel of industry leaders judged the competition and the winners were celebrated at the 2013 BeatuyBASH during the recent 2013 America’s Beauty show.

Here are the 2013 STARS and RISING STAR winners.

So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
