Feb. 6, 2014. For almost 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. 

“Years ago this was just something fun that popped into my head,” said John Mena, owner and master stylist at Haircut 101. 

“I like to do something special for each of the holidays, and this is just a lot of fun.”

The contest, which has been an annual event on Valentine’s Day for almost 10 years, offers entrants a chance to win valuable gift cards to Haircut 101, and this year, Monkee’s in Blowing Rock is getting involved too.

“A lot of my customers and myself are clients of Haircut 101, so it seemed like a natural partnership and we really wanted to help out with the collection and prizes,” said Jess Wehrmann, owner of Monkee’s. 

“We hope that having a collection site in Blowing Rock will increase the number of entries.”

To enter, simply go to Monkee’s in Blowing Rock or Haircut 101 in Boone and give them a kiss! Put on your favorite lipstick and kiss a doily, and it will be hung up in the respective shop 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.

Prizes this year are:

  • First Place: $200 Haircut 101 gift card AND $100 gift card to Monkee’s
  • Second Place: $100 Haircut 101 gift card AND $50 gift card to Monkee’s
  • Third Place: $50 Haircut 101 gift card AND $25 gift card to Monkee’s

So if you are interested in winning great prizes and having a good time, head on over to Haircut 101 in downtown Boone or Monkee’s in Blowing Rock and pucker up!
