MODERN launched our Haute Holiday competition in September to promote industry artistry and name one of YOU as the newest member of our exclusive 2017 Artist Collective (which includes @theconfessionsofahairstylist@alexfaction, @taylor_lamb_hair, @antestradahair and @ay_grace among others).    

After narrowing thousands of Haute Holiday submissions to our 10 semifinalists, the 10 talented stylists were tasked with creating a chic holiday style. Our Artist Collective judges picked their five favorites, and those five were sent a Challenge Box with goodies from Fave4, TIGI and Ulta Beauty to create a final, New-Years-Eve-ready 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 November 13, so make sure you vote for your favorite submission every day.

Take a look above to view all the finalists' submissions, and vote for your favorite here! The winner will be announced November 14.
