Judges reactions:

“Sarajane’s entry is EVERYTHING, a true showstopper. Her choice of colors and placement combined with the varying lengths of hair and cuts, wardrobe and photo direction brings her vision to life! Her ability to marry hard and soft lines, blunt edges and vibrant color makes this look a winner."

“Beautiful interpretation of the era that inspired her. Beautiful hair color that truly shows a very broad pallet of Vivid colors. Sophisticated & and “unusual” look and feel of final image. Not your everyday Instagram creative color.  Sophisticated technique. Not simple to re-create.”

“Sarajane Maples entry #1 is an extraordinary display of colorist talent, color palette selection, cut, styling, makeup, wardrobe and overall editorial look. The image reflects both skill and quality and is the perfect illustration of the passion and creativity that the Show Us Your VIVIDS Contest embodies.”

“I love the madness between opposing colors and lengths topped off by the illusion of weight and weightlessness. This picture is amazing!”

“Aspen’s entry perfectly captures her inspiration. Like a thriving desert cactus, her look features sharp edges with pops of vibrant color, similar to the budding flowers in her inspo image. The movement captured in the images is superb and allows the strategic color placement to shine through.”

“Beautiful interpretation of the original inspiration. Sophisticated technique. From the overall look & feel this is very strong.”

“I enjoy the color placement on this wig and the overall editorial look and feel of the final images.”
