What is Battle of the Strands????

First and foremost Battle of the Strands (BOTS) is a hair, makeup, nails and fashion competition. BOTS showcases original avant garde looks from salon teams before a panel of industry icon judges. Now in it’s fourth season, we are welcoming teams from Asia and Europe. The 2013 season consisted of 6 qualifying rounds; NYC, Orlando, Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and an online voting qualifier. October welcomed the semifinals in Vegas, with the final that happened on October 14th. The 2014 Battle promises to be BIGGER, BOLDER and LOUDER.
