Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2011
Beatriz Sandoval, a cosmetology student at Oceanside College of Beauty, recently participated in a national hairstyling competition sponsored by Clairol Professional. Sandoval was one of two student finalist selected from entries across the country who travelled to Atlanta, Georgia to compete live on stage. She won second place overall.
To enter the contest, Sandoval had to use hair colors from the Clairol Beautiful collection and create a look on a live model. She used several colors, mixing browns and reds to achieve the desired look. After submitting a photo and detailed explanation of how she achieved the look, her entries were reviewed by a panel of judges.
“We’re so proud of Beatriz’s hard work,” said Ray Stainback, owner of Oceanside College of Beauty. “It’s wonderful to see one of our students challenging herself and accomplishing so much, so early in her career.”
As a finalist, her prize was a 3 day/2 night trip to Atlanta, Georgia for herself and guest, where she attended the Bronner Show and competed against the other finalists. In Atlanta, Sandoval met her model for the first time, developed a plan for a new hair style using Clairol Beautiful colors, and created the look live on stage. She also participated in a question and answer session with the audience and judges.
Sandoval won second place, competing against another student stylist. Two licensed stylists also competed in Atlanta.
“It was a great opportunity, and very humbling to be a part of this,” said Sandoval. “Everyone was very encouraging, and the other stylists all gave me great feedback.”
