Think you have what it takes to be a beauty queen?
Celebrity hair colorist and leading Las Vegas salon owner Michael Boychuck will be hosting a special event at his renowned Amp salon inside the Palms this Sun., Oct. 23. Entitled “Amp It Up!,” the event will serve as an open casting call as it welcomes ladies to register for the highly anticipated 2012 Miss Nevada USA and Miss Nevada Teen USA pageants. Miss Nevada Organization’s Creative Director, Shanna Moakler, along with reigning beauty queens Miss USA Alyssa Campanella, Miss Nevada USA Sarah Chapman and Miss Nevada Teen USA Ashley Brown will all be in attendance for the lavish affair. The event will begin at 4 p.m. and pageant hopefuls will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the Miss Nevada USA Organization directors, as well as this year’s reigning beauty queens Campanella, Chapman and Brown.
With more than 25 years of experience in pageantry hair and makeup and as the colorist of many of Miss USA’s best-known winners and contestants (including longtime friend, client and former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler), Boychuck has become the “mane man” for beauty queens. This year, Boychuck will open his doors to pageant contestants with his consulting program for pageantry beauty tips. One of Boychuck’s top artisans and the reigning Mrs. Nevada, Kristie Gulia-Jelinsky, will also serve as a consultant for the program.
