SEATTLE & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Calling all models—your virtual runway awaits! Step & Repeat, the first ever style and fashion competition launched on TikTok, returns for season two on June 7. Last year, Glamhive and Mary Kay Global Design Studio unveiled the fashion reality contest that reached millions of users worldwide. Now, the four-week style challenge is back and promises to be the fashion extravaganza we’ve all been waiting for.
Celebrity Stylist Zadrian Smith (clients include: Ariana DeBose, Naama Preis, Naomi Scott) hosts Step & Repeat with three judges and industry favorites: celebrity stylist Tara Swennen (clients include: Kristen Stewart, Matthew McConaughey), celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez (clients include: Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson), and celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims (clients include: Victoria Beckham, Queen Latifah).
Each week, host Zadrian Smith will announce a theme-based challenge for TikTok users to showcase their creativity through wardrobe, makeup, and hair. The show’s celebrity judges will duet the best looks from around the world and cast their votes for winners in each category. Participants are asked to incorporate the show’s custom sound, “Step & Repeat,” and hashtags, #stepandrepeat, #glamhive, and #marykay to enter their video into the competition. For each challenge there will be three winners, hand-picked by the judges, who will receive a cash prize plus an hour one-on-one meeting with an industry mentor.
At the end of the four weeks, Step & Repeat will announce one overall winner for each category, crowning them the very best in wardrobe, makeup, and hair based on entries from all over the world. TikTok is the place for anyone with talent and a creative voice to share their gift on a global scale. Step & Repeat is the platform that gives you the opportunity to be seen and celebrated.
