About The Show


The Hair Games: Unity

A Hair Competition and Fashion Show


I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all participants, sponsors, and volunteers that has supported The Hair Games since its time of inception in 2013.  A huge thank you to The Hair Games team for seeing my vision and sustaining my mission.  Together, we have all made The Hair Games what it is today.

The theme of The Hair Games 2017 is, “Unity.” I believe in unity there’s strength and power.  When people come together with commitment to a common goal, they can achieve something beautiful, regardless of their differences.  Unity can never be underestimated. No great achievement in this world is possible without unity. Therefore, it is our responsibility to create a culture that is unified to ensure it will undoubtedly contribute to the nation of which it is an undivided part.

Once again, I thank you and I pray that The Hair Games will continue to unite our community for years to come.
