Paul Mitchell Hair Color Winners Announced

Now entering its third year, Paul Mitchell's Color Outside the Lines contest encourages hairstylists at all levels—including students and international stylists—to show off their hair coloring skills and talent. Entrants submitted either a natural or creative makeover for judging. The Grand Prize winners will receive airfare and hotel accommodations to attend the Paul Mitchell Gathering in Las Vegas July 8-10, where they will be recognized during an on-stage presentation. They'll also have the opportunity to be part of a Paul Mitchell collection shoot (airfare and hotel accommodations included). Without further adieu, here are this year's National winners. Congratulations to them and to everyone who entered!
