Plus, entries are open to stylists in all levels of their career – from cosmetology students to long-time pros – as long as you’re based in the U.S., Canada or Puerto Rico. This year, winners also walk away with awesome prizes, such as the opportunity to work behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week, have your work featured in a top editorial publication, or receive once-in-a-lifetime mentorship opportunities!
