The photos taken at the annual Hair Freezing Contest in Canada’s Yukon territory are sure to make you chuckle. And laughs are something all of us might be needing right now in this uncertain time of coronavirus.
The contest takes place every year at the Takhini Hot Pools just outside of Whitehorse between December and March, on a day when the temperature is below -20°C (-4°F), CNN.com reports. There are a few steps involved in artistically freezing your hair. Check out the diagram below found on the contest’s official webpage:
Contestants are awarded in five categories: Best Male, Best Female, Best Group, Nongshim’s People’s Choice, and Tim Horton’s Most Creative, CNN.com reports. For every person that is entered in the contest, 5 packs of noodles are donated to the Whitehorse food bank.
Prizes: The Winner(s) of the Campaign (the “Winner”) will receive one of four identical prizes packages: $2000, unlimited free soaks in the current hot springs facility until the current facility is closed, and a free 12 punch pass to the new upcoming hot springs facility (opening in late 2020). Prizes will be awarded per category, regardless of the number of people/participants in the winning photo.
