OFW is searching for some remarkable salons to compete in the March 2016 Develop Model Management Beauty Show! Eight teams of hair stylists and make up artists will get the chance to show our beauty panel their creative talents. The show will be held on March 20th at Omaha Fashion Week.

Teams will be competing for a $2,500 prize package. The package includes a $1,000 cash prize, an exclusive VIP table at the August 2016 Finale valued at $1,000 and a full-page ad in Omaha FASHION Magazine.



The  selected teams will draw a theme from a bowl on Friday, March 18th at Omaha Fashion Week during the Designer Show Case II. Style teams will not have any information on what the themes will be until this night! We will be providing tickets for the contest participants to the showcase. After teams draw, they have 48 hours to develop and execute their concept based on the theme drawn. We recommend four people to a team—a team leader, hair stylist, make up artist, and a stylist to put it all together.

Teams will have eight assigned models by Develop Model Management. It’s up to you to decide what they should wear (no swimwear or lingerie allowed). You will not know who these models are until March 18th. You will receive their contact information on this night as well and we encourage you to reach out to them right away.

How you interpret your theme and present your idea is totally up to you! We are looking for endless creativity with this contest. There will be a panel of beauty industry experts, separate from the OFW selection panel, who will judge teams on creativity and visual impact.

Participants will receive backstage passes to the show plus a set of complimentary tickets for additional guests.

Teams will be announced in February so make sure to keep up with OFW on social media!
