:: Spotlight :: Aldo Raymond & Miss World Australia Holdings present the ultimate hair challenge

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

One of Australia‘s leading hairdressers and award-winner, Aldo Raymond, has started the Challenge for the ‘Top 20’ Hair Designers in Australia, who will be selected from a two-part National Competition.

These ‘Top 20’ Hair Designers will then be invited to the Miss World Australia Finals where Miss World Australia will be crowned. These ‘Top 20’ Hair Designers will be on stage competing for the title Miss World Australia Hair Designer. This will be a five-star opportunity as this event is an Australian first - Miss World Australia and The Professional Hairdressing industry have joined and established the Miss World Australia Hair Designers Challenge.
It is ‘The Ultimate Hair Fashion Event for True Hair Designers’.

CHALLENGE FORMAT

PART A – Your Challenge
Per Entry: Include one A4 (210x297mm) unmounted, colour photograph (do not write on the back of photograph) together with a CD that is formated (min. 300 dpi at A4 size) with a signed entry form.
The photograph must be a head-to-shoulder shot reflecting how you would present Miss World Australia to the world at the Miss World competition. Note that the style of Miss World Australia will be evening glamour.

PART B
Once the Top 20 Hair Designers have been judged, selected and notified of their win, these Top 20 Hair Designers will be invited to the crowning of Miss World Australia. Each finalist will be allocated to a Miss World Australia finalist, who will be dressed in a designer gown created by Australia’s top fashion designers.

Each Miss World Australia finalist image needs to be completed.
Your job as a Top 20 hair designer is to style (no cutting or colouring) and dress your Miss World Australia finalist’s hair. Your hair design is required to create a total look that captures the glamour and elegance worthy of the Miss World 2008 title. Australia’s Top 20 Hair Designers will be vying for the one trophy - Miss World Australia Hair Designer 2008

CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
You may enter as many times as you wish. Each individual photograph submitted incurs an entry fee, with a signed entry form. Senior: $45.00, Apprentice/Student: $35.00.
The Hair Designer must be 18 years of age or over.

Photographs sent will remain the property of Miss World Australia Holdings Pty Ltd. Photographs may be used for publicity, promotional, magazine, television footage and other marketing purposes without compensation.
Being selected as a Top 20 finalist, does not include travel or accomodation to and from Sydney for the Miss World Australia finals.

Judges results will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. Entrants acknowledge that they have read, agreed and fully understood the conditions of entry stated on the entry form, by signing the entry form.

JUDGING
Judging will occur in two stages for Part A and Part B. A panel of judges will be selected from hair, fashion, entertainment, publishing and beauty professions. The judging panel will select the Top 20 Hair Designer finalists in Melbourne.

The Top 20 finalists will then be invited to the Miss World Australia finals at Sydney’s Star City on April 9, 2008. At this event, a second judging panel will judge the Miss World Hair Challenge and select the Miss World Australia Hair Designer 2008 winner.
