The competition was judge based on best Michael Jackson performance, hair, makeup and attire.
The Manitowoc Empire Beauty School celebrated their event with a Mardi Gras theme. The students hosted a team competition. Each team was made up of four students, as they were judged on hair, dress and makeup. The winning team received a lunch party and a dress down week. A local salon employee from Jumanji Salon in Sheboygan also presented an updo class and Empire alumni Rosheed Buford offered a demonstration on lining and designing men’s cutting.
The Appleton Empire Beauty School students participated in an up-do competition as well, to go with their Red Carpet theme, and held a fashion show at the school. As each student dressed in their favorite red carpet attire and walked the runway, information about the students were announced. Information ranged from what they liked to do in their spare time, what they wanted to do when they graduated, favorites, and more. All of the schools offered free beauty services and tours of classrooms and the salon to welcomed guests, local community leaders and others attending the event.
