Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
On the heels of its Chicago Shout Out, Vegas Beauty Unbound will hold a final road show event in Los Angeles for salon teams interested in entering the epic salon competition, Battle of the Strands 2012: Xtreme Beauty. The LA Last Chance will held on Monday, August 20, and coincides with the entry deadline for the Battle of the Strands, to be held in Las Vegas in October.
During the Chicago Shout Out, a dozen teams filmed concept videos detailing why they should be selected for Battle of the Strands or the Art & Beauty Unbound Student Competition. The event served as an exclusive birthday celebration for celebrity stylist, master colorist, and battle host, Kim Vo, who offered valuable advice to over a hundred salons, professionals, and students. Social media and word-of-mouth generated hundreds of inquiries about the competition. The event was filmed by a crew on-site for Project Runway’s LookTV, as part of its ongoing chronicle of the competition.
The LA Last Chance is the final road show event before teams are selected and elimination rounds begin for Battle of the Strands 2012: Xtreme Beauty. Both Kim Vo and celebrity stylist Kari Kisch will answer questions, detail the competition, and assist teams who register to have their videos filmed in both the professional and student categories. Doors open at 4:00 p.m. and interested salons and students must sign up by emailing info(at)vegasbeautyunbound(dot)com or calling 702/990-3368.
The Top 10 salons selected for the competition will be flown to Las Vegas, all-expenses paid, and will be provided with all the tools and products needed for the preliminary challenges and final competition at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
“The Chicago Shout Out was an awesome opportunity to meet and discover talented and passionate salon teams, each with a unique and almost compelling story to tell, who believe that they have what it takes to take on the best salons in the country,” noted Erin Utter, Vegas Beauty Unbound’s Director of Operations. “As one of the world’s fashion and beauty centers, we thought LA would be another natural choice.”
