“Sarajane’s entry is EVERYTHING, a true showstopper. Her choice of colors and placement combined with the varying lengths of hair and cuts, wardrobe and photo direction brings her vision to life! Her ability to marry hard and soft lines, blunt edges and vibrant color makes this look a winner."

The image reflects both skill and quality and is the perfect illustration of the passion and creativity that the Show Us Your VIVIDS Contest embodies.”
