Today is the day: To push boundaries. To create the unimaginable. To become What’s Next in the world of hairstyling.


Each year, Sebastian releases a hair collection to inspire contestants. This year, that collection is ECLECTIC. Winners earn a prestigious role in the Sebastian family and and sought-after opportunities to advance their careers to the next level.
