Twenty-one year old Amanda Stone from Tampa, Florida, the first place winner of Pravana’s Show Us Your Vivids contest, knows what she likes.

Stone’s prize was a photo shoot with MODERN SALON and Van Osten, who mentored and encouraged the young artist during the day at Van Osten’s P!ay Hair Lounge.

In preparation for the shoot, Stone had been sent wefts of hair and two of every shade in the Vivids range. She laid down plastic on the kitchen table and threw a hair party.
