Kadus Professional announced the winners of its Destination Lifestyle #MyKadusMakeover contest – Kelly Naso (@kellynaso) and Wes Palmer (@wesdoeshair). These talented stylists will attend the brand’s annual Destination Lifestyle event for the unique opportunity to advance their professional career through exclusive educational seminars and networking events, while surrounded by the island paradise of Malta.

“Our commitment to accessible education and the cultivation of a thriving social community for stylists has made Kadus a trusted partner for salon professionals across the globe,” said Carole Protat, Senior Creative Director, North American COTY Professional Beauty. “Destination Lifestyle captures our passion for empowering,  ducating and connecting independent stylists, and is just one way we can reward them for their hard work. We look forward to having Kelly and Wes join us in Malta as we celebrate our craft and foster creativity within the industry.”

More than 600 applications from around the country were submitted and reviewed by a panel of industry experts, including top stylist influencers Cherin Choi, Kathy Nunez and Eric Vaughn. The winners were selected not only for their hair craftsmanship skills, originality, and use of Kadus Professional color products, but also the total likes and engagements on their #MyKadusMakeover contest photo.

Kelly and Wes will experience an exciting mix of leisure, networking, and education during the exclusive three-­‐day trip. Designed with stylists in mind, the global industry event puts education and entertainment center stage. From high-­‐energy shows to cutting-­‐edge Look & Learns and world-­‐class education sessions from the industry’s top talent, Destination Lifestyle offers hairstylists an unparalleled opportunity for inspiration.
