Category Tips

  • Entries from this category MAY be used in other categories, EXCEPT Salon Team
  • Do not use Photoshop or similar software/programs to fill in or create hair in the final images
  • Do not use Photoshop or similar software/programs to "cut" the hair
  • Your collection should demonstrate a breadth of your talent as an artist.
  • Try to demonstrate your work in long hair, short hair, haircolor, etc.
  • Try to make your collection timeless — the looks should not feel "dated".
  • While each of your photos should be diverse, make sure they all have a common theme that relates back to your story.
