UPDATE FROM AVEDA: To accommodate the demand, entry submission closes March 17, 2013 with the final runway shows taking place in May 2013.

BornToStyleIt’s that time of year.  Aveda Institute is hosting their annual Born to Style contest once again.  (You may remember I blogged about it last year in: Style to Win and What Are Your Odds of Winning?)

I love this promotion because if you are so inclined to have a career in the beauty industry, you have an opportunity to win the tuition to fulfill your dream.

To be in to win, they have the same three step entry process they had last year.

Create a 2 minute, or less, video showing  the Aveda Canada Hair School why you’ve got the talent, passion and gumption to be a stylist.  Videos must be submitted no later than March 1, 2013.

Upload your video and share it across your social media networks.  The video with the most LIKEs get an automatic slot in the Hair Showdown and you have an opportunity to win a $500 VISA gift card.

This amazing head-to-head (pardon the pun) competition is just like those featured in the movies Blow Dry or The Big Tease.  There will be one winner selected in each of following cities: Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.
