In the mid 1950’s L’Oréal Professional Hair products began a competition that would go on to spark imaginations and push the lines of hair style for the next sixty (plus!) years. As the first on stage hair competition, finalists put the finishing touches on unique, edgy, and mind-blowing looks before the model walks the runway, displaying their creation to a panel of judges that will ultimately decide a winner.
While the competition may have begun with large hair twists and bouffants, it has grown into stunning color and sharp edges that have people staring in jaw dropping wonder.
Just look at some of the winners from the past few decades and you can see how the style has changed and grown.
