Hair Couture Vegas...Here I Come!
Nick Verreos, Celebrity Judge at "Battle of The Strands 2012: Extreme Beauty" The Most Extreme Salon Competition in History
I am BEYOND excited to announce that this weekend I am flying to Las Vegas to be a Judge at the "Battle of the Strands 2012: Extreme Beauty" Hair and Beauty Competition. In case you may not have an idea of what Battle of the Strands is...here's a reference: it's like the "Miss Universe" of salon contests! I was invited to represent LookTV, one of the sponsors of this great competition.
Battle of the Strands 2012: Extreme Beauty--Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas
As you may know, I am one of the spokespersons for LookTV--the BEST Beauty and Fashion YouTube Channel--and have done some fun videos for them, including a "Behind-The-Scenes" of Season 10 Project Runway Castings as well as a great video I did with Project Runway Season 1 All Stars Winner Mondo Guerra which you can see HERE.
Battle of the Strands is the centerpiece of a three-day beauty extravaganza in Las Vegas from October 20-22. The competition pits 10 top and unknown salons from across the country in a head-to-head battle of outrageous challenges to showcase creativity and teamwork in extreme situations.

The Top 5 will compete in the grand finale at The Joint, Hard Rock Casino Hotel. I just went to Las Vegas last month for an event I did for Crystals at City Center so I am very happy to return! I am honored to be a judge and bring my fashion expertise and insight (and yes, the fact that I LOVE me some HAIR and Makeup!) to this wonderful competition.
Nick Verreos and Kim Vo--TV Guide Network Award Show Fashion Wrap TV Show
I am EXTRA excited when I found out that master colorist to Hollywood's A-List, Kim Vo was hosting this year's Battle of the Strands! J'adore Kim Vo! We have worked together before, having a blast, filming many TV Guide Network Award Show Fashion Wrap TV shows in the past...
