The Limelight: Create, Inspire, Educate, Compete

A competitive event showcasing the artistry and excellence of hair stylists.

Live Event is Monday, August 20th, 2018

Second Annual Limelight Category:

Creative Cutting

What is the Limelight Event?

We know we have a community of passionate, artistic hair designers. We want to showcase and acknowledge their creativity while creating an educational and inspirational atmosphere.

How it Works

12 selected finalists will simultaneously have 90 minutes to perform a creative cut amongst a live audience. At the start of the event, each stylist will have a "mystery box" that contains 12-15 styling products from one of our participating brands. The stylist must use the products in their mystery box to finish and style their creative cut. A panel of judges will announce 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. The panel of judges will not know who created each look. The winners are chosen solely off of their finished result.

  • 12 Finalists
  • 90 Minutes
  • 12 Mystery Products
  • 1 Live Event!
