PRAVANA Announces 5th Annual Show Us Your VIVIDS Contest


PRAVANA recently announced the return of its popular "Show Us Your VIVIDS" Contest, beginning July 1, 2015. Students and stylists are invited to enter their brightest, head-turning color creations using PRAVANA VIVIDS hair colors for a chance to win their own editorial photo shoot in Los Angeles and a multi-page feature in a national magazine. In addition to PRAVANA’s full range of VIVIDS, PASTELS and NEONS hair colors, this summer’s launch of VIVIDS LOCKED-IN offers entrants even greater creative opportunities. Submissions will be accepted through Sept. 30 and winners will be announced in October through PRAVANA’s social media outlets, website and community e-mail blast.

This year’s judging panel includes PRAVANA Guest Artist and celebrity stylist Danny Moon of Andy Lecompte Salon, Vadre Grigsby, PRAVANA Artistic Color Director and James Gartner, PRAVANA Guest Artist. Entries will be judged based on creativity, technique and overall impact. Moon was named the winner of the first-ever “Show Us Your VIVIDS” contest and has since created a following that includes numerous celebrities. He also lent his talents to create looks for this year’s new PRAVANA VIVIDS LOCKED-IN campaign.
Last year’s Show Us Your VIVIDS first place winner Maria Santana (above), whose look was “on FIRE and smoldering from within,” said Grigsby, earned the title thanks to her use of both ChromaSilk Crème Hair Color and VIVIDS creative colors. “Using VIVIDS in a new, inspired way of exploding brightness and intensity into ‘traditional’ hair color takes VIVIDS use even further into the realm of everyday hair color,” said Grigsby. Santana’s seamless technique and style led her to not only taking home the win but also seeing her winning image included in a major marketing campaign for PRAVANA.
