Taste of Style is about creating a total fantasy hair design harmonized with makeup and fashion. Your aim is to achieve the most innovative creation. Your presentation should embody the theme “Unmasking the Face of Hunger”
Working as a team of two presenters and two models to create your fantasy hair and makeup project, which is defined as style that is not worn in the real world.
Entries will be judged on total appearance of the overall fantasy, including hairdressing, makeup and accessories (feathers, fruit, jewelry, etc.). This is a runway presentation voted on by the audience (People's Choice).
The presentation of your two models is very important. Judging will be based on the following criteria:
Makeup and attire must complement the hairstyle. Remember, this is a hair fashion gala. Your two models are required to wear black clothing to highlight your work. Only 30% accessories may be added to the black clothing to enhance the theme. Let’s offer the audience beauty, glamour and fashion.
Hair may include coloring, hairpieces, wigs and weaves (no limit). The style should be at least 80% hair with no more than 20% accessories. "Hair" may be synthetic in nature.
Participants must choose and provide their own two models and be responsible for all costs associated with the exhibit; models must be at least 18 years of age. Models must sign a release form for Taste of Style/Oregon Food Bank.
Entrants are responsible for their own two models once the show has concluded.
A dressing room will be provided for final touch ups. We ask that you come to the event with hair and makeup near completion.
Absolutely no one will be allowed in the prep room except contestants and models. No exceptions.
Please conduct yourself with respect for this event, Oregon Food Bank, and the audience.
