Stylists to do battle

Hair Dressers, barbers and nail technicians are among stylists being given an opportunity to shine at an upcoming event.

The organisers have dubbed the Hair and Art Run Way Show “the ultimate hair, cosmetic and body art show”.

Scheduled for the evening of June 9, the show will also feature tattoo artists and boutiques.

Spokesperson Nickisha Natasha Yearwood told Dominica News Online that there will be two main battles on stage.

In the first, two nail technicians will seek to outdo each other by displaying their expertise in their application of nail polish.

The two are Elegant Nails and La Diva Nyoka Nails.

And three barbers will go “head to head”, each hoping to prove that his cut is the fastest and best, in a bid to grab the “Best Barber in Dominica” title.

That competition will be between Fresh Out Barbershop, Celebrity Cutz Barbershop ad Dj Smoove Barbershop.

    Dominican women should focus less on their hair and nails and more on their health and a healthy body image – especially for their daughters. Just saying…

    This is a wonderful initiative however we have sooooooo many beauticians and nail technicians in Dominica and I believe you should aim higher! Try to include more than just two technicians, separate the show into elimination, semi-final and final rounds; that way the technicians get to display more than one design. Seek sponsors so as to be able to offer attrative prizes….I really love the idea. Best of luck!!
