Aspiring hairstylists, listen up - are you Born To Style?
I just got word that Aveda Institute (Canada) is hosting their Born To Style contest in which four lucky winners will receive hairstyling scholarships. That means FULL tuition at one of Aveda's top schools in Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.
I checked out the contest entry details and it seems pretty straightforward:
(from the Born To Style website:)
STEP 1: MAKE A VIDEO (2 MIN OR LESS)
Create a video to show why you are born BORN TO STYLE and why you’ve got the talent, passion and determination it takes to develop your hairstyling skills with the Aveda Institute Canada.
STEP 2: UPLOAD & SHARE
Click on Enter Contest to upload your video. Share your Aveda Institute entry page with your network of family, friends, fans and followers. Get them to vote for your video. The entry with the most votes secures an automatic spot in the final Hair Showdown, so make sure to share your talent with the world!
STEP 3: HAIR SHOWDOWN
An esteemed panel of hair and beauty professionals will hand pick four aspiring hairstylists in each city as well one spot will be slotted for people’s choice to advance to the final round. These future hairdressers will participate in a live head-to-head competition and runway show putting together two complete looks in front of a panel of style experts and hairstyling heavy hitters. The winner in each city will be awarded a full scholarship to the Aveda Institute hair school!

What I love about this contest is it's open to anyone. Whether you are fresh out of high school or looking to change careers, you are welcome to participate for a chance to win. Looking at the current entries and it seems there is definitely room for more - you'd have a legit chance at winning, in my opinion! But you've got to act fast - the contest closes this Friday, March 1st.
If you are a reader of mine and decide to enter this contest or have a friend who is entering please do let me know! I'd love to see your video(s) and spread the word, so tweet at me! (@anjali_handa)
What a great opportunity this is - good luck to all contestants!!!
