You’re a cutting-edge stylist whose coloring skills are as varied as the hues in a rainbow—literally! From red to violet, you can creatively customize a seriously colorful semi-permanent coloring job. If Pravana hair color products are the secret weapon supporting your talent, then “Show Us Your Vivids” is the contest for you. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity combines Pravana’s Naturceuticals Vivids with “Shear Genius” winner Brig Van Osten’s top talent.

To prove you’ve got prowess, all you have to do is upload three images, one of a ho-hum “before” model and two of your model “after” exposure to your very own unique methodology of applying Pravana’s Vivids color. Your fate then rests in Brig’s hands—the seasoned stylist and owner of P!ay Hair Lounge in California will select three licensed professionals as the most creative color-ers.

The first-prize winner will receive a paid trip to an editorial photo shoot with Brig herself. Those pictures will then wind up in a major salon industry publication! Second place will receive $1,000 worth of Pravana hair care, styling and coloring products, while the third runner up will be gifted with $500 worth of products.

If you have what it takes to color the world your way, visit from July 1, 2011 to August 31, 2011 to get more information and to enter the first ever Show Us Your Vivids contest. Then, anxiously await September 5, 2011 when Brig will bestow her three favorite colorists with premium prizes. Happy coloring!

Underdog contestant Brig Van Osten took home the top prize on Bravo’s “Shear Genius” last night.

Van Osten beat out Matthew Morris and Janine Jarman to win Season 3, and the prizes included the opportunity to style hair for an “Allure” magazine photoshoot and $100,000.

According to the Blogging Bravo website, “She really was the one to watch throughout the whole competition, not just for her styling ability but for her high entertainment factor. In a competition ruled by two stylists whom Brig dubbed “the Wonder Twins,” it was hard to imagine that the underdog would take it all in the end. And we’re glad she did.

“Brig, you wowed the judges with your innovative, laminated styles. Kim Vo seemed especially impressed by your use of color. Linda Wells was thrilled by all of it, and Camila seemed to be as well. Only Jonathan Antin wanted to rain on your parade, but fortunately for you Mr Crankypants’ vote was overruled by those of the other judges.”
