Super Skills Contest: a Chance to Be Creative and Win Big!

Going to beauty school offers an exciting variety of ways to use your creative power. You get opportunities to create looks that are unique, artistic, and stylish! At Avalon School of Cosmetology, we are taking a step further and holding a contest to give our students a chance to create looks that will save the day!

How It Works

As one of your assignments, you will have to create a character using all of the makeup and hairstyling techniques you are learning in school. Flex your creative muscles and create a great hair & makeup look with a superhero, villain, or comic related twist! Whatever you decide to do, it has to be over the top and insane! You can enter your work for this assignment into the Avalon Super Skills photo contest to win some great prizes! As part of your assignment, you will have to post this on social media with your caption and appropriately tagging anyone else you had involved (make sure your model has signed a consent form). To enter the contest, simply make sure that your post is not private and include the hashtag #avalonsuperskills on either Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
