California Cosmetology Student Wins $50,000.00 prize package

Myo Lin - Junir Style Stars Winning Entry 

Myo Lin, a student at Pasadena City College, has won the Junior Star Styles Bridal Grand Prize; a national competition that attracted almost 300 of the nation’s top cosmetology students. Myo is the first Asian American male to win the 7 year old competition.  On Friday, May 17, Lin was awarded his prize in front of his student peers and supporting instructors. Lin learned of his award during a surprise presentation by Junior Style Stars founder Paul Barry.   
The Junior Style Stars competition invited cosmetology students to create a theme-inspired style demonstrating their skill at hair design and color. All students competed on identical Pivot Point mannequin heads and submit their photos online.  All 2013 competition submissions reflected a style themed as “Real Life Bridal”. “Each year these students amaze me with their skill and talent.  With them as the future of the cosmetology industry, the future is bright!,” noted Paul Barry.
