Win A Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity To Style Top Performers At Music Festivals…

…and get discovered thanks to Booksy

Singing along with famous musicians and head banging to guitar solos are part of what makes being in the crowd of a music festival so exhilarating. Now, imagine being backstage, not as a fan, but as a beauty professional responsible for those artist’s head turning hairstyles on stage. You can win chance to style some of the country’s most popular musicians through Booksy’s Get Discovered Backstage contest and make this dream a reality.

Booksy, the leader in booking and business technology for the beauty industry, has partnered with Idle Hand Collective (@idlehandcollective), a group of traveling barbers and hairstylists who provide complimentary haircuts to top performers and artists at music festivals around the world. Idle Hand Collective understands how difficult it can be for touring artists to get a show-stopping haircut or style, so they have spent a combined 30+ years on the road helping performers and other professionals look and feel their best before their gigs.

Booksy and Idle Hand Collective have joined forces to create this once in a lifetime contest for beauty professionals. Imagine the opportunity to cut and style hair for some of the country’s top music artists and having the chance to Get Discovered Backstage! Barbers, stylists, braiders, and nail artists have a chance to win a unique opportunity to showcase their talents backstage at major music festivals across the country like Riot Fest, Furnace Fest, and EDC Orlando from September to December 2022.

This contest supports Booksy’s “Get Discovered” campaign which launched in early 2022. Thanks to this contest, beauty pros now have the opportunity to Get Discovered Backstage by well-known performers and share their work just like they can get discovered by new clients on Booksy’s marketplace.
