BTC BREAKING NEWS: Kenra Neon Hair Battle Winner Announced!
We like to think of Guy Tang and Rebecca Taylor as the He-Man and She-ra of creative color. What do we mean? The classic ‘80s cartoon characters are known for incredible strength, amazing powers and freaking FABULOUS, colorful outfits. So it’s natural that the theme was all about SHE-RA for the Kenra Professional Neon Hair Battle! And almost 100,000 of you tuned in on BTC’s Facebook to see ALL THE ACTION LIVE!
Mary Rector-Gable, Guy and Rebecca hosted the neon throwdown at the Boulevard3 in Los Angeles, and BTC was there for the entire weekend, from model selection to the amazing afterparty. We got up close and personal with the five fabulous colorists who had nine hours to lift, lift, LIFT their models’ hair before painting outstanding neon creations that took inspiration from She-ra’s cartoon comrades.
Last year’s Hair Battle winner, Kim Pham (@kimwasabi) and Kenra Educator Mirella Manelli joined Mary, Guy and Rebecca in judging the finalists’ looks, and it was all streamed live to you on BTC’s Facebook.
The winner will be featured in behindthechair.com On Paper and star in an educational video with Guy or Rebecca! Plus, she gets $25,000 worth of digital advertising for her work AND a serious bump in her Instagram followers and clientele.
