Sebastian Professional’s 'What’s Next Awards' Winner Announced

Sebastian Professional announced Sara Merrie of Hollywood's Harroin Salon as the winner of Phase IV of the 'What’s Next Awards' for showcasing the most vibrant color shine with her look 'Pop Color.' Merrie will join the Sebastian Professional styling team backstage at New York Spring 2012 Fashion Week. Judge and Sebastian Professional Stylist Design Team Member Thomas Dunkin said Merrie's vision was “a truly inspiring look that utilized the Sebastian product line in a clever way—it is the epitome of the brand.” Runner up Jordan McLeod’s look 'Rush of Red' played with reds, coppers and golds, which Dunkin called “dramatic and bold.” —Kristen Heinzinger
