After receiving countless entries since the launch of our holiday contest Slay Belles, it was extremely difficult to narrow the pool of glamorous waves, glossy finishes and blinged out chignons down to 10. It wasn’t easy to judge this first round, but it certainly was beautiful and got us in the holiday spirit!

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—Design.Me HairHot ToolsHairUWear Professional, Grande Cosmetics, KMSKenra ProfessionalKeune HaircosmeticsLAKME, Living ProofMoroccanoil, Rusk ProScruples, and Wet Brush.

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 ultra glam holiday-party-prepped hair by 11:59 p.m. CST on October 12. Entries will be judged by the MODERN SALON Artist Connective, including Karla Varley @karlavarleyhairartist, Sadie Curtin @sadieface, Stephanie Geib @stephscissorhands, Renee Marie Plante @styles_by_reneemarie and Emily Buffi @buffthehairslayer. 

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 Slay Belles Giveaway—the winners go home with jaw-dropping loot.
