Entrants can choose from three NEW fashion categories, including:

The 2011 STARS judge is Luis Alvarez of Aquage who will select one winner (or salon teams) in each category. The prizes for each category are:

*One $750 cash prize for the winner or team

The STARS photo competition encourages talent and creativity among salon professionals at every level, for both technical execution and fashion awareness along with photo expertise. Entries are artistic yet “real” and show salon creativity by requiring both before and after photos of a model and/or client, as well as red carpet and street fashion.

Cosmetologists Chicago President Frank Gironda will award each winner a cash prize at America’s Beauty Show, March 12-14, 2011.
