MODERN launched our Haute to promote industry artistry and name one of YOU as the newest member of our exclusive 2017 Artist Collective (which includes @theconfessionsofahairstylist, @alexfaction, @taylor_lamb_hair, @antestrada and @ay__grace among others).  

After receiving thousands of entries since the contest’s launch, it was extremely difficult to narrow the pool of beautiful, glam, holiday styles down to 10. From Hollywood waves, to bling-y braids and faux bobs, it wasn’t easy to judge this first round, but it certainly was beautiful!

This group of 10 semifinalists not only earn major bragging rights, but they also receive incredible prizes, including a gift box packed with goodies (we’re not kidding, it’s PACKED) from some of our favorites—Kenra (stylers on stylers on stylers), Agadir (voluminizing hairsprays, treatment and mousse!), Pink Pewter (the PRETTIEST box of hair accessories you ever did see), Lakme (shine spray, matte powder, hairspray and mousse), X-Fusion by Toppik (hair-thickening fibers for flawless volume and updo perfection), Moroccanoil (a stylist bag packed with favorites), Living Proof (Dry Shampoo, Shampoo, Conditioner, Full Dry Volume Blast and the PhD styling treatment) and Hot Tools (the buzzing Curl Bar!). These pro beauty brands pulled out all the stops to gift this group with the goodies to help up their styling business and create polished, picture-perfect finishes.

But the semifinalists aren’t off the hook just yet—MODERN is challenging them to create another holiday-inspired look. We want to see the most beautiful, glam, gorgeous holiday creations possible that will be sent off to judging by the best in the biz—MODERN’s 2017 Artist Collective!

Take a look and see who our semifinalists are, and stay tuned as they submit their best work for judging!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! You can still hang with these guys AND get the chance to win some of the amazing prizes they’re snagging by entering our Haute Holiday giveaway—the winners go home with jaw-dropping loot. Their final challenge? TOP SECRET! But it involves incredible prizes and products from Fave4, Ulta Beauty and TIGI-- stay tuned to see what these brands are gifting!!!
