Meet the Sebastian Professional 2015 What’s Next Awards Finalists!

close formula

These lucky finalists are getting a shot to prove that they are “What’s Next!” Sebastian Professional’s What’s Next Awards celebrates new and established artists, providing a platform for stylists to demonstrate their skills, imagination and creativity.


Serving as inspiration for this year’s entries—Sebastian’s latest hair collection—Metamorphik. Inspired by nature at its most creative; Metamorphik represents unexpected extremes, consisting of two powerful, but opposing raw elements—volcanic ash and carnauba wax. It ignites the power of self-expression allowing artists to change the state of hair and unlock new possibilities for artistry.
