Do You Have What it Takes to Be ‘What’s Next’?

close formula

Do you have the creative savvy to be “What’s Next?” Sebastian Professional’s What’s Next Awards celebrate new and established artists by providing a platform for stylists to demonstrate their skills and imagination. Do you have what it takes to win this year’s competition?


To serve as inspiration for entries, Sebastian has released it’s latest hair collection—Totemic. Totemic is far from traditional, but it’s grounded in tradition. The exaggerated shapes of masks and fabric are worked into new ways of weaving and roping. The lines between headdress and hair are blurred between ceremonial beauty and a battle cry for artistry. Hair becomes decoration, armor and art—a symbol of identity and strength.


View the Totemic Collection here!


Ready to get started? To enter, simply “like” the Sebastian Professional Facebook page and click on the What’s Next Awards banner. Then, upload a close-up photo (chest and above) of your hairstyle inspired by the Totemic Collection. Eight finalists—four Professionals and four Students—will be flown to New York City to compete live at the finale event on April 12th, 2015. And the prize is pretty great! An editorial photo shoot with a leading trade publication sponsored by Sebastian Professional and $1,000 for each category! So what are you waiting for, submit your entry and prove you’ve got what it takes! But hurry, the deadline to enter is February 1st!
