One talented beauty professional will win $10,000 and the chance to perform on stage at Masters of Beauty.
September 12, 2011— Time is running out for professional stylists to enter Empire Education Group’s ‘Become the Next Master of Beauty’ contest.
To date, more than 250 beauty professionals have entered the online contest in which the winner will receive $10,000 and the chance to work on stage with the star of Empire’s Masters of Beauty program, Nick Arrojo and his team of Master Stylists.
Round one closes September 30th. Stylists wishing to enter can register and upload a photo of their work onto the contest’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/mastersofbeauty. There, they can enter one of three categories—cutting, coloring, or styling. The public will vote, and then combined with input from Nick and his team, quarter-finalists will be chosen and asked to upload 2-3 minute videos highlighting them and their work. From 10 semi-finalists, 3 finalists will travel to New York City to vie for the coveted title, announced at the International Beauty Show in New York City in April 2012.
The first place winner receives a high–end education package that culminates with the opportunity to present on stage with Nick at selected Tour of Beauty dates in 2012, plus $10,000. Empire’s award-winning Masters of Beauty Skills Certification Program, featuring hands-on training with Nick Arrojo, has been touring the country since last year.
Second and Third Place winners also receive a cash prize, three Masters of Beauty Skill Classes and the opportunity to attend a Beauty Systems Group event.
