#HAIRJAM2016 Finalists Announced!

When we started the #HAIRJAM2016 Instagram Hair Contest, it was our goal to celebrate the work of amazing stylists and barbers. All we can say is WOW! We were absolutely amazed by all of the entries that were submitted and had a really hard time narrowing it down to just 5 finalists for each category.

As a reminder, here were the 5 #HAIRJAM2016 categories:

  • #hairjam_color16: Show us all the colors! We want to see those beautiful locks of gold, silver, metallic…every color of the rainbow.
  • #hairjam_sheargenius16: We want to see your best work with a pair of scissors or a razor. Show us your shear genius: layers, pixies, bobs, fades, and more!
  • #hairjam_stylie16: Style is everything, and we know you’ve given your clients amazing looks. Let’s see all of the best updos, curls, and hairstyles you’ve done for your clients.
  • #hairjam_technique16: Whoever said being a hairstylist or barber was easy? It takes precision and poise. Show us those tough cuts, fades, colors, and styles that will make us go, “Wow!”
  • #hairjam_upandcoming16: This category is specifically for stylists or barbers who have under 1,000 Instagram followers and might be new to industry. We want to see your best work and help you grow your following. Show us what you’ve got!

As a supporter of those who work so hard to make people look and feel their best—inside and out—no matter who wins, we want to give a collective round of applause to all of the talented stylists, barbers, and hair artists out there. We truly appreciate all of the hard work and passion you put into your craft. Well done!

Alright, now it’s time to get down to business. Are you ready? Let’s get to it!

*Please note: finalists are not in any specific order. Winners will be announced on Friday, November 18.

Every season I have an updo that stands out to me and this wedding season this was my absolute favorite to create. I love a challenge and after doing many updos it’s not often that I absolutely feel challenged. To create this soft but intricate looking style I used a 1″ curling iron with Eufora Elevate Spray to set her hair for the style. I then used Eufora piece works and pure polish to separate the curls. With a few tries of pinning the hair to look flawless but also provide hold this look was finished. I used Eufora Uphold to set the style for the day. Thank you @rachaelhawthorne for letting me do your hair. I am also using this as my pick for #hairjam2016 for @gostylie in the #hairjam_stylie16
