Everyone knows how expensive getting ready for prom is. Tamara Rifai owner of Revolution Hair Salon in Beaconsfield is putting on a contest to make it a little easier on four graduates.
“I want to give girls the incentive to get pretty for prom,” Rifai said. “I know how pricey it can be and I want to help. But I want this to be fun and interactive in return. I want the girls to post their their own hair tutorial videos.”
The contest will take place starting immediately where graduating high school students will be required to submit a video of no more than 3 minutes showing why they need Revolution Hair Studio to do their hair for prom. Videos need to be posted to Youtube and then shared with Rifai via Facebook @ Revolution Hair Studio.
The four winners will be pampered with an “updo” to go with their gown for prom along with a glass of non-alcoholic champagne and photo shoot. Photos of the winners at prom will then be posted to Revolution Hair Studio’s Facebook page.
“It is a fun way to celebrate and get creative,” Rifai stated. “I have so many ideas on how I want to give back to the community that has been very good to my business over the years. This is only the beginning.”
Last month Rifai’s salon was the focus of media attention due to her commitment to reducing waste heading to land fill. A growing trend in her industry is the recycling of hair products and waste to be used in finished products such as cement and hair booms that collect oil in tragic oil spills.
