In addition to inspiring and wowing, the live competition will see the launch of two new systems from DreamCatchers: K-tip & Weft. Only the new K-tip and Weft extensions will be used in creating the extension makeovers, along with incredible hair color and styling choices.

“This is the perfect time to do an event because everyone ready to be engaged, again, and is looking for some excitement in the industry,” explains DreamCatchers CEO Chris Volek. “Anyone can follow along as these teams compete to create their best looks. They can stream it in their salon, they can get inspired by the work, and then they can vote for their favorite finishes.”

Beauty Warrior, brow artist and showman Adame (@adammeartistry) will be the MC, hosting a runway show and announcement of the winners that evening.

On the ground, it will be a tightly controlled environment, with only the teams and their models.  “Everyone will get COVID rapid tests before they come the event and the salon environment is a beautiful, open and airy space.”

On Sunday, the models will arrive and each team will select their muse. Wardrobe will be selected off the rack at the Vintage Shop of Dallas.  Then on Monday, competition day, the teams of three artists will be at their stations for the four hours (from 1:00pm-4:00pm) of live work, with video streaming happening throughout the day.  And anyone registered and watching may have the chance to receive one of the many prizes being given out during the day.

“After 2020, with so many shows and events cancelled, we all needed a boost, a kickstart, and we think this is going to do that!” Volek says.
