Are you frustrated with your hair? Do you think you have the unruliest curls? Do you need help? NaturallyCurly.com has teamed up with "Curly Girl" author Lorraine Masssey to hold a Curl Pride contest for the most frustrated curly kid around.
The winner will receive a three-day trip for two to New York City, including a makeover by Massey at the Devachan Hair & Departure Lounge in SoHo, a manicure and pedicure, $500 in spending money and Devacurl hair products for a year. Airfare and hotel also are included. The winner will learn from one of the world's leading experts about how to bring out the natural beauty of their curls or kinks.
The contest is open to kids ages 7 to 12 who live in the continental United States. The winner will be selected based on a 300-word essay describing their curl frustration entitled "Why I need a Curly Hair Makeover". Kids should submit a 5X7 photo along with their essay. Submissions may be by e-mail or by snail mail: CurlyKids.com Curl Pride Contest, 3415 Greystone Drive #300, Austin, TX 78749. (Submissions will not be returned.) DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15.
The winner will also get to write a column about their curl experiences that will be posted on CurlyKids.com and read by kids, teens and 'tweens around the world. CurlyKids.com will donate a portion of all February product sale proceeds to the UNICEF foundation, an organization dedicated to the welfare of children around the world.
