STAMFORD, CT, April 29, 2013 – Could you be the next L.A.

The model search contest is just part of the new excitement from L.A.

Sport and Wet Looks infused with Tri Active Hold for absolute fixation, resistance and durability.

“L.A. Looks has incredibly dedicated fans with a great sense of style, so it was just natural to look among them as we search for our next models,” said Jon Achenbaum, Newhall Laboratories’ CEO.  “This is going to be an exciting year for L.A. Looks fans with new products on tap, exciting promotions and refreshed websites and social channels.”

Fans can visit the L.A. Looks Facebook page and enter by submitting a photo through July 31. Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, quality of photo and overall appeal. Up to ten girls and 10 guys will be chosen as finalists and showcased on the L.A. Looks Facebook page from August 8-21, where fans can vote for winners. Two Grand Prize winners will be announced on or about August 26, who will enjoy a trip to L.A. including transportation, hotel, meals and participation in a professional photo shoot.
