Red Union Salon had its “First Annual Halloween Severed Head Contest.” Can I just say what an amazing contest it was! The participation, creativity
and enthusiasm where parallel to none. Four of San Francisco’s best Beauty
Schools battling it out for supremacy. A bit like “Project Runway” . We
call it “Project Headway”. Meaning on heads only showcasing “Amazing Hair
and Make-up”. There where a total of 26 heads and an installation of “Wizard
of Oz” that was off the hook.
First Prize was swept away by two thirds of the votes. “Marie Antoinette”
who was actually be-headed in real life. A very fitting candidate for a
severed head contest. She was done by Loren Laughlin from Miss Marty’s
School of Beauty. Loren received a 200.00 Dollar cash prize.
Second Prize was taken by Kate Dewald who entered “Beauty School Drop-out”. We all know and remember “Grease”. This girl is an amazing talent and will not go back to High School! Kate received a 100.00 dollar cash prize.
Third Prize went to Tim Hutton who did Abandon a very majestic biblical figure. Tim, a very talented stylists who knows his worth was the only one to price his exhibition like a true artist.
Some other serious contenders where “Medusa” done by Pasha Smith came in 4th by only 2 votes with Zenzie’s School of Beauty who swept up 2nd, 3rd and 4th. “Siamese Twins” by Emmazing with San Francisco Institute of Aesthetics and Cosmetology. “A Tribute to Madonna” for all you Madonna/Fetish fans.
Fun was had by all and certainly got everyone into the Halloween Spirit. Perhaps we’ll extent the contest to all “Hair Salons” in the Bay Area next year!
