We're having so much fun looking at the entries for Pravana’s 2016 Best of Balayage Awards, where colorists enter their proudest Pure Light balayage techniques on Instagram for a shot at being named Pravana’s Best Balayage Artist of 2016. LEARN MORE HERE

This entry by @mpatino of G Spot Hair Design (seriously...) caught our eye and we knew we had to share it with you because, well, not all blondes are created equal. Pay attention to these specific images because EVERYTHING needed to enter is here: four photos (one to show the before pic, one to show the processing pic, and two "after" pics),  tagged @pravana in the post,  used #bestofbalayage, included the full step by step breakdown of the formula and application technique, and is following the judges' pages: @pravana, @modernsalon, @thebusinessofbalayage.

To create the better version of a whop-whomp BEFORE pic, @mpatino used Pravana Pure Light Clay Lightener, Pure Light High Activator, Express Tones Pearl, Perfect Blonde Toning Shampoo, Perfect Blonde Masque and Leave-In.

THE DEETS: The contest is running through September 15, 2016. One talented colorist will receive an entire year’s supply of Pravana’s blonding product worth more than $10,000—plus majorrrrr features on @modernsalon’s social pages, modernsalon.com AND editorial in MODERN SALON magazine!
