MODERN launched our Braids & Brides competition in January to promote special-occasion artistry and name one of YOU as the newest member of our exclusive 2017 Artist Collective (which includes @mustafaaavci, @blohaute, @heidimariegarrett and @annette_updo_artist).

After narrowing thousands of Braids & Brides submissions to our 10 semifinalists, the 10 talented stylists were tasked with creating a braided style. Our Artist Collective judges picked their five favorites, and those five were sent a Challenge Box with goodies from Pink Pewter, GKhair, HairUWear Professional and Amika to create a final bridal style using at least one product or tool from the Challenge Box.

Here's where you come in: The grand-prize winner will be chosen by YOU, MODERN SALON readers! Public voting is open until March 12, so make sure you vote for your favorite submission every day.

Take a look above to view all the finalists' submissions, and vote for you favorite here! The winner will be announced March 13.

GUESS WHAT! Win some of the amazing prizes our finalists are snagging by entering our Braids & Brides Giveaway—the winners go home with jaw-dropping loot.
