Have you ever heard of a “Hair Freezing Contest” before? Well, better take a look at this!
This is by far the most BIZARRE International Hair Freezing contest, held at Takhini Hot Springs in Canada every February. As the name suggests, the contest has people enter the springs and just wait for the cold air to freeze their wet hair!
Crazy as it seems, in order to win the $150 prize, all contestants need to do is sink their heads in the hot springs that are at 40 degree Celsius, and then wait for the freezing outside air to fix their crazy hairdos in place. At temperatures of under -30 C, hair can freeze in under 60 seconds, creating a stunning effect.
See what I mean?!
To all participating contestants, they are all awarded with complimentary pool passes. They have until the end of the month to post their photographs with the frozen hair on the venue’s Facebook page. Milena Georgeault and her friends were this year’s winners – they managed to transform their hair into elaborate white noodle-like formations.
Indeed, the contest is meant to be a fun event that also generates publicity and (not to mention) tourism for featuring the unique springs. It does come with a warning, though – don’t try this at home!
