After narrowing countless entries to the Braids and Brides contest down to five finalists, we asked the five talented stylists to create an all-hair-up updo for the last challenge using products from the challenge box from Ulta Beauty—which included a flat iron, makeup and more—and were asked to use at least TWO products from it.

Congrats to our five finalists:

Trae Howard

Anaa Khan.

Sara Ortega

Jessica Domoney
