Kadus Professional, one of Coty, Inc.’s salon professional brands, today announced the launch of its Destination Lifestyle #MyKadusMakeover contest. In a continuing effort to empower independent salon professionals, the brand will award two stylists with a trip to the Southern European island of Malta from June 19-21, 2018 for its annual global industry event. 

Now though April 18, all interested stylists are encouraged demonstrate their technical skill and color creativity. To enter, entrants must be residents of the United States, follow Kadus Professional on Instagram and post side-by-side, before-­and-­after photos of a hair color makeover on Instagram using Kadus products, using the hashtag #MyKadusMakeover in the caption. The top-ten photos with the most likes and engagement will be chosen as finalists.

Each finalist entry will be reviewed by a panel of judges, which includes top stylist influencers, Cherin Choi, Kathy Nunez and Eric Vaughn. Choi, Nunez and Vaughn will also support the campaign on social media and attend the event. With a combined social media following of 200,000+ and 30 years in the industry, these three influencers share a collective focus on education and are noted for their color expertise.
