Steven Robertson of Salt Lake City-based Lunatic Fringe Salon will be joining Sebastian Professional's styling team backstage as a guest stylist at New York Spring ‘11 Fashion Week and will be featured in BlackBook magazine.

Grand Prize Winner of Sebastian's What's Next Awards Announced!From a group of consumer-selected finalists, a panel of experts and Sebastian celebrity stylists Thomas Dunkin and Janine Jarman awarded Robertson's high hair height, doll-themed look as the winning look that pushed the concept of volume to the edge. Poignantly passionate, Robertson says, "I strive to have the end product have the feeling of ‘that's beautiful' as opposed to ‘that's cool,' whether it's avant garde work or classic. I believe a beautiful photo will hold more timeless and be appreciated, and really be looked at for a longer period of time than a ‘cool' photo would."

Sebastian Professional is launching the third round of its What's Next Awards in August 2010 celebrating the 25th anniversary of its iconic Shaper hairspray.
