(Q&A) The frequently asked questions from contestants

Q: Can we bring family members to support us during the competition?

A: Absolutely! You are welcome to bring your supporters to cheer you on during the competition.

Q : What will the workspace look like? Will I need to bring my own table for supplies?

A: Each participant will be provided with a styling chair and a table space. However, you are required to bring your own hair kit, including braid lace, accessories, and any other necessary tools for creating your braided hairstyle.

Q: Does the entire style have to be created while at the event? I wanted to add braid work to the outfit my model wears and wanted to see if that was permitted to be prepared prior to the event.

A : In hair competitions, it is typically required that the models' hair either starts with a wig cap or is in a basic, natural, and normal condition. This is to ensure that all the participants are working with a similar starting point and have an equal opportunity to showcase their creativity and skill in styling the hair. Starting with a wig cap or natural hair also allows the judges to evaluate the hairstyles based on their technical execution and design, rather than on the quality or condition of the model's hair before the competition. However, model outfit coordination can involve selecting accessories to complement your work, which can be done in advance of the event. The outfit should enhance your work without overwhelming it.

Q : Will the hair be provided for us on the day of the event or do we need to purchase it ourselves?

A : Each participant will receive a maximum of six-packs of 3X Ruwa Pre-stretched Braid 24" for use during the competition. If you require additional braids, they will be available for purchase at the store.
