MODERN launched our Balayage & Boho competition in June to promote industry artistry and name one of YOU as the newest member of our exclusive 2017 Artist Collective (which includes @lalasupdos, @omgartistry, @shelleygregoryhair, @mermicornhair, and @hairbysaretta among others).    

After narrowing thousands of Balayage & Boho submissions to our 10 semifinalists, the 10 talented stylists were tasked with creating a festival-inspired look. Our Artist Collective judges picked their five favorites, and those five were sent a Challenge Box with goodies from GKhair, HairUWear ProfessionalJoico, Pulp Riot, Sexy Hair, Matrix and Bio Ionic to create a final style using at least one product or tool from the Challenge Box. 

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