State Qualifying Event:
Skilled and Technical
Students demonstrate their skills in hair color, haircutting, hair styling, and long hair design in four separate tests. All work is performed on mannequins, so everyone begins with the same model and the same type of hair. Competitors will perform one woman’s cut, and one man’s cut from a finished photo. They will also create one uniform layered haircut. A display of creativity is seen in the long hair segment of the competition where these future salon professionals demonstrate their own design skills. A parade finale closes the competition with each competitor walking down the stage with their completed mannequins to present to the audience.
The career competitions of the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) as a membership benefit following their submission of membership.
