Here are the winners of Canada’s annual hair-freezing contest!

When it comes to rocking a styling look, there are loads of ways to get there. For those of you who are still lucky enough to have a full head of hair, it turns out that freezing your do is just as effective – if not more so – as styling it the old-fashioned way. Yeah, nah, in the Canadian hair freezing contest, competitors use the Takhini hot spring and the cold weather to style their hair and hope for a $2000 prize!

Before we just go in and talk about the winners of the prize, we want to talk about the competition itself for a little while. Here in Oz, we’re pretty well-known for our glorious weather. That doesn’t mean we’re not a big country and our climate doesn’t vary, but in terms of ‘proper’ cold, this kind of thing is a bit beyond us.

So when we see it online, we naturally a feel a bit awed. Deadset, the fact that it’s possible to jump into a hot spring and then let the cold weather freeze your hair in place is pretty shmick – and it’s not even something that belongs in Something About Mary. Yeah, nah, it’s not jizz.

One of the judges, Andrew Umbrich, reckons this year’s comp was the biggest yet. “Last year we had four categories each worth $750, this year we had five categories each worth $2,000. Everything changed this year when we got Tim Hortons and Nongshim – an instant noodle company from Korea – to sponsor us.

“We developed a website just for the contest, offered better prize money, and then the people came out and really tried hard to compete and win. We had a solid 50 entries this year that we considered for winners. Normally, we had 50 entries or less and had to pick from a few good ones.”

Final thought: This s**t might be a bit tricky for our Aussie fans, but if you’re living somewhere cold, we reckon you should get out in the yard and give this one a go. Once you’re done, load your effort into the comments section!
