The results are in. We have our two winners of the “Best of Westeros”contest! Drumroll, please…
The voters’ choice winner is Saige Allison with her “Mother of Dragons” look. Everyone loved this eye-catching red makeup (complete with dragon scales) and dress paired with Khaleesi-colored hair. It’s a great display of both creativity and technical skill. Congrats, Saige!
The judges’ choice winner is Rachelle Reeder and her “Children of the Forest Look”! She was able to work with a lot of textures for both hair and makeup to create this woodland fantasy. It was a great chance for her to show off her artistry and cosmetology skills. Nice job, Rachelle!
153 votes “The inspiration for my Game of Thrones look came from the Night King, the leader and first of the White Walkers. I wanted to create an intense look to match that of the Night King, while still putting my own feminine twist on things!”
65 votes “The inspiration for my piece was the quote “I’m not a lady, I’m a wolf.” I based my entire piece on this quote transforming my friend into half a lady and half a wolf.”
56 votes “For my Game of Thrones look, I wanted to blend Queen Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons, and Drogon, one of her three dragons named after Khal Drogo. Drogon is the most aggressive of the three dragons and I wanted to capture that in this look!”
21 votes “Edgy warrior hairstyle was done by Corissa Hartman on the lovely Rachelle Reeder. I came up with this hairstyle that I find would fit perfectly in the game of thrones.”
18 votes “I took to Kohl Drogo for my inspiration for this Game of Thrones challenge. My goal while creating this look was to capture Drogo’s intense personality.”

On September 27th, Trim Hunger hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ existing record for the most people cutting hair at the same time when over 20 Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thons will be held simultaneously at The Salon Professional Academies (TSPAs) across the nation. Additionally, a wide variety of events and fund-raisers will take place at individual participating TSPA franchise locations. To learn more about Trim Hunger, visit www.TrimHunger.com
In recognition of Hunger Awareness Month, Redken 5th Avenue NYC in collaboration with The Salon Professional Academy, will host the Trim Hunger™ Cut-A-Thon at the Redken Exchange in NYC on Thursday, September 10th from 10am– 3:30 pm to benefit City Harvest, a food rescue organization dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.
Top Redken stylists will be giving haircuts, blowouts and braids for a minimum donation of $25. Much like the way color specific ribbons are worn in support of causes, painting your thumbnail has taken on the same social identity. Essie, also a sponsor of the event, will be offering “orange thumbie” manicures in their Trim Hunger “Roarrrrange” shade as a symbol of support in the fight against hunger.
Trim Hunger is the most recent non-profit endeavor of Redken stylist Josif Wittnik, owner of Salon CTI and Day Spa and The Salon Professional Academy in Appleton, WI. Following a local project to help feed families in need in his community, Josif developed Trim Hunger to raise awareness for the cause and feed the hungry on a national level.
“It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver one pound of food in New York City, and with more than 2.6 million New Yorkers struggling to afford food for themselves and their families, a little bit goes a long way,” says Leslie Marino, General Manager, Redken US. “Redken’s Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon will bring together both stylists and members of the community to help make an immediate impact on the fight against hunger in New York City.”
