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.
