Battle of the Strands

Battle of the Strands in Las Vegas Rocks!

Battle of the Strands 2013, Las Vegas

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 — The Battle of the Strands ( competition and masquerade ball was held at the Spanish Mansion, a 10,000 square foot estate in a 2.5 acre enclosed property a couple miles from the strip. From 8:00 P.M. until midnight. Participants competed in a hair, make-up, costume, props, and execution impact competition. The five salons competing were given a theme and asked to portray it onto their three models each. This year’s theme was “Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.” Four respected industry judges picked a winner based on a variety of categories and the winner received the award for Top Salon of Las Vegas 2011.

Battle of the Strands promoted the Las Vegas Beauty Industry as the Mecca of beauty attraction and is a thriving salon industry with talented and respected artists.

Beautiful ladies in completely outrageous costumes made the event memorable.

The participating salons were The Spa at Trump featuring Eli Sabat, Walk in Salon by Robert Cromeans at Mandalay Bay, Kim Vo Salon at the Mirage (winner), Canyon Ranch Salon at the Palazzo, and Cariloe Concept Salon.

In true Halloween spirit, cool props adorned the property.

Hot and cold at the same time… check out this amazing hair dryer ice sculpture.

As the night progressed, guests enjoyed delicious food from Wild Truffles, a high end Las Vegas caterer lead by prominent chef Eva Paulussen.

“Everything about this event was wonderful,” said celebrity guest Dr. Robert Rey (Dr. 90210), “from my dramatic arrival in Lamborghini’s brands new supercar, the Aventador, to the spectacular show, to the delightful company I had the pleasure of enjoying the night with.”

Lamborghini of Las Vegas was a sponsor of the event so there were plenty of beautiful ladies (of the four wheel variety) on hand, including the all-new Lamborghini LP 700-4 Aventador. Thanks Tom (SinCityLambo) for a great evening. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
