Modern Salon x Oribe Portfolio Contest 2018

Oribe Hair Care and Modern Salon Magazine invite you to create a stunning and unique style inspired by Oribe's 10 year anniversary and the cult classic Dry Texturizing Spray. Capture it on camera and submit your collection for your chance to win a feature in Modern Salon Magazine.

HOW TO ENTER
Step 1: Create a concept around Oribe’s 10 year anniversary (anniversary-inspired) hair.

Step 2: Use Oribe products to style a look befitting of a Modern Salon Magazine feature. Feel free to pull it back, keep it down or add an Oribe accessory. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray must be used in at least one of the steps.

Step 3: Snap a minimum of five photos and submit the collection to [email protected] with "Modern Salon Contest Entry" in the subject line for a chance to win a feature in an upcoming issue of Modern Salon Magazine and mentions on modernsalon.com and Modern Salon’s social communities of more than 1.5 million followers. The hairdresser is only responsible for styling hair. A makeup artist and/or photographer may assist with the shoot, if needed.


TIPS

  1. Shoot on a clean or stylized background.
  2. Since Modern Salon is a magazine that celebrates hair, make the shoot focused on hair. Fashion, makeup and photography cannot take center stage or compete with the hair finish. The model’s makeup should not overpower the hair and same goes for wardrobe choice.
  3. If nails show, make it count. No chips.
  4. Use a live model. Styles created on wigs and wig heads will not be considered.
  5. Collections should be a minimum of three cohesive images, each with a unifying factor. There needs to be a story. Ideally each image will feature something different and a different way to wear the look (the hair can be up in one shot, down in another and curled in another). 



RULES
An individual may submit multiple portfolios.

Please include your name, your salon’s name (if applicable), a brief summary of your inspiration, a step-by-step how-to and which Oribe products you used to achieve the look.

Portfolios must be submitted to [email protected] between August 24, 2018 and September 10, 2018. Entries received after 11:59 p.m. on September 10, 2018, will not be eligible for entry.

All submitted portfolios must be original work created for this contest. Submissions to previous contests will not be considered.

All images must be available in high-res format upon request.

The winner will be contacted by Oribe Hair Care on or before September 15, 2018 and must respond by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 19, or a substitue winner will be chosen.

The winner will be selected by a panel of judges from Oribe Hair Care and Modern Salon Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Alison Alhamed.
