The competition started with more than 600 entries--more than double the previous year's entries--and a lot of talent. The Sebastian team eventually chose four finalists for New Talent and four for the Professional category and then left the rest up to a panel of judges: Lauren Quick, MODERN editor; Shay Dempsey, Sebastian Professional global art director; Christian Siriano, fashion designer; and Danny Lozada, 2013 What's Next Awards Professional winner.

MODERN got to see all the looks from the front row. The show was more than just a display of what competitors had to share; the new Totemic collection from Sebastian Professional showcased hand-made styles that took a look back in time to propel hair forward.
