Trend Vision Awards 2013

North American Trend Vision Awards | Mirage Hotel and Casino | 9:36 P.M.

I felt a tad frumpy last Friday photographing backstage at Wella Professionals’ 2013 North American Trend Vision Awards at the Mirage. Top competitors from the U.S. and Canada presented their most innovative hairstyles for the chance to represent their country at the International Trend Vision Awards. Seeing the hottest salon trends up close—including lots of jagged bangs, asymmetry, big teased volume and subtle pastel ombré coloring—made my messy bun and caramel highlights feel boring and sad. Maybe next year I’ll sport a pale blue reverse mullet.
