Top Salon Teams Compete for Global Beauty Master at 2014 Battle of the Strands

It was a hair raising (meant in an awesome way) experience inside the Silverton Hotel's Veil Theater on Monday, October 6, as six winning salon teams from around the world, including Jamaica, United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico, competed for the title of the Global Beauty Master at Battle of the Strands 2014. This World Cup of Beauty is the most extreme hair, makeup and wardrobe competition of all time showcasing an amazing array of  innovative, creative and artistic fantasy designs.

The competition featured statuesque models parading across the stage in each of their team's best eye popping colorful costumes, stunning makeup and nails and, of course, most imaginative, avant garde hair designs that incorporate different textures and materials with the model's real hair, that drew oohs and ahs from everyone in the room including the judges.  Choosing the winner was a difficult decision for the esteemed panel of judges since every amazingly talented salon team offered up winning creations, each as equally dazzling as the next.  Yet, after the judges deliberated, the Wanda Montes Squad from Puerto Rico walked away with the title of 2014 Global Beauty Master that included $100,000 worth of prizes and $10,000 in cash.
