Severed Heads Get Stylish Makeover

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Heads are rolling in San Francisco.

Red Union salon is turning heads with their annual Severed Head Contest, where hairstylists create an original hair and makeup masterpiece using the severed head from a dummy.

Entries are being accepted now until Friday (Oct. 30). Anyone who stops by the salon can vote on their favorite and the winner will be crowned on Halloween (Oct. 31).

Last years’ winners were a Marie Antoinette design, which got extra points since the famous monarch actually did have her head severed, a bloody, ’60s style bouffant complete with spilled brains, and a creepy wolfman head.

Spokesperson Erika Redding says, “The premise is amazing hair and make-up. Anything goes, from outright stunning, funny, to scary and ghoulish. The stylists do what they want.”

The severed heads turn out so cool, Redding thinks they’d make excellent replacements for any zombies who’ve lost theirs.
