Alabama-based Rusk designer Kevin Kirk was recently named co-champion of the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show's Hair Battle Royale at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Kirk, who has been with Rusk since 2007, was also awarded $20,000 and a 2010 Ford Taurus. You can catch him on the big screen in Chris Rock's movie Good Hair, which will be released in late October.
