More than 370 guests cheered on their favorite competitor in each category: Student, Creative Vision and Color Vision and enjoyed a front row seat to Top Artist presentations.

The expert team included a wardrobe stylist, make-up artist and professional photographer. Each competitor received a professional photograph of their final look, that will serve as their entry into the National Trend Vision competition, as well as a beautiful addition to their professional portfolio.

That evening, guests were invited to view competitor’s final look and vote for their favorite via www.bloom.com for the peoples’ choice award.
