Over 400 artists submitted three themed haircolor challenges to Redken for the chance to represent Redken at the 6th Annual NYX Face Awards in Los Angeles.  Only six winners will receive the one-week, all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles, along with all the benefits that come from being named The Next Big Thing. 

Artists were tasked to create themed haircolor looks across three categories: Royalty, Animal Kingdom, and Cyber Punk. Redken required artists to upload their interpretations to Instagram to both increase their digital presence and qualify their submissions by tagging @Redken and utilizing #RedkenNBT and #RedkenBrandAmbassador for a chance to win. Judged on creativity (40%), originality (30%) and execution (30%), artists utilized their skills to create the most eye-catching, intricate and imaginative haircolor designs.

The six chosen winners will attend the Redken x NYX welcome party on Monday, August 14th, as well as the 6th  Annual NYX Face Awards on Saturday, August 19th.
