Feb. 5, 2015. For more than a decade, Haircut 101 in Boone has been hosting the annual “Hot Lips” contest in their salon, located at 174 S. Depot St. in downtown Boone. The contest, which has been an annual event on Valentine’s Day for years, offers participants a chance to win valuable gift cards to Haircut 101 and other local businesses.
“The Hot Lips contest was started by the owner, John Mena,” said Brittany Benton of Haircut 101.
To enter, simply go to Haircut 101 in Boone and give them a kiss! Put on your favorite lipstick and kiss a doily, which will be hung up in the salon until all entries are collected. On Valentine’s Day, our very own publisher Ken Ketchie will choose the top three best kisses to win great prizes.
“There are no rules,” she said. “All you have to do is come in and kiss the doily! Clients are welcome to write their name and phone number on a doily and kiss it for a chance to win a variety of gift card prizes from Haircut 101, CoBo, The Local and Sunrise Grill ranging from $15-$100.”
Last year, approximately 32 people entered the contest. This year, Haircut 101 is hoping to have even more participation from the community.
“Some people aren’t willing to have red-stained lips all day, but we are certainly urging as many people as possible to enter,” Benton said. “We want as many kisses as we can get!”
The contest has been a major success since its inception years ago.
“I think it makes our clients feel special to have an opportunity to be rewarded for doing something as simple as kissing a doily with their best puckered lips,” Benton said.
So if you are interested in winning great prizes and having a good time, head on over to Haircut 101 in downtown Boone and pucker up!
