by Jamie Newman | August 8, 2018

After narrowing countless entries to the Best of the Fest contest down to 10 semifinalists, we asked the 10 talented stylists to create a beautiful festival balayaged look. Our panel of judges and editors picked their five favorites!

Congrats to our five finalists:

The five finalists were sent a challenge box packed with top-notch products and tools from some of our favorites—Bio IonicHot ToolsHairUWear ProfessionalScruples and Ulta, plus products from Keune, Lakme and Alfaparf Milano that will also appear in the gift box for the top-10 semifinalists. 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.

In their final challenge, the finalists had to use at least TWO products from the Challenge Box (major bonus points for using at least one product from each brand included in the box) to create their ultimate festival-inspired look.  

Here's where you come in: The grand-prize winner will be chosen by YOU, MODERN SALON readers! Public voting is open until Monday, August 13, so make sure you vote for your favorite submission every day.
