Bio Ionic, a premium line of professional styling tools, has announced its four finalists who will compete live at their second annual Bio Ionic Style Awards. The event is sponsored by Joiful, Ulta Beauty, Mane Addicts, Agave Healing Oil, and Pink Pewter.

Back by popular demand and with a mission to inspire stylists across the country, the four hair stylists will have the opportunity to showcase their talent live on April 23rd, 2017 at Club Avalon in Hollywood for a chance to become Bio Ionic Style Award 2017 winner and receive a two-page spread in a leading magazine.

The four finalists are: 

Megan Schipani of Silver Spring, MD

Yolanda Hale of Danville, IL

Franco Hernandez of Scottsdale, AZ

Jessica Warburton of Encino, CA

“The Style Awards provides an opportunity for hairstylists to demonstrate their artistic talents to top industry tastemakers,” says founder of Bio Ionic, Fernando Romero. “We were overwhelmed by the talent that was presented to us this year and look forward to an exciting and inspiring award show.”

The Style Awards kicked off with a six-week long Instagram competition where stylists were asked to showcase their talents by creating cutting-edge hair styles using Bio Ionic tools, uploading their photos to Instagram with #BioIonicStyleAwards and posting a brief description of the style they chose and the Bio Ionic tool they used to get the look. The Bio Ionic team, Romero, hand selected four  stylists to be flown out to Hollywood to take center stage and compete live in front of a celebrity panel of judges.

The night will begin with a runway show featuring the hair creations from industry elites followed by the 2017 Style Awards presentation, where the four stylists will complete head-to-head to win the Bio Ionic Style Award and receive a two page spread in a leading publication. Guests will then be invited to join the after party celebration for a night of dancing and fun.
