Hair Fitness at Bronner Bros.

Grand prize winner Linette Battle (image courtesy of UnitedHealthcare)

The Bronner Brothers show is a huge draw for many reasons, but we had to give a shoutout to Linette Battle of Palm Beach, Florida. She won the grand prize in the 3rd annual “Hair Fitness” competition, which promotes styles that “facilitate healthy and fit African American women.” The contest, sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, included 50 showstopping competitors – all striving to create hairstyles that were easy to maintain that could help their clients make daily exercise less high-maintenance.

Stylists were judged on technical execution, originality, suitability and head contour, and new ideas. Contest categories included: low-impact workout (little to no sweat and requires only one shampoo/condition per week); moderate-impact workout (modest sweat and requires 1-2 shampoo and conditions per week); and high-impact (profuse sweating and requires 2-3 shampoo/conditions per week).

Keep up the great work ladies!
