Sunsilk Bridal Make-up and hair-do contest
The Sunsilk Bridal Make-up and Hair-do Contest had 36 beauticians of the original 300 contestants exhibiting their talents in bridal make-up and hair-do. The judges, Rachana Singh, Dolly Singh, Rachana Gurung Sharma and Reecha Sharma, had a tough time deciding which of these extremely talented beauticians to select as the winner of this contest. From the traditions of the Himalayas to the ones of Terai, and through those of Pahadi regions, the contestants displayed their talent to mix traditional outfits and more or less modern hair-do and make-up. Finally, it was beautician Sumita Shrestha who received the well-deserved prize from the hands of the beauty specialist - Kamala Shrestha.
She was not the only one to be rewarded that evening. Sophie Sunuwar received two prizes as 1st runner-up and best make-up for the simple beauty of her style. Amrita Shrestha was designated 2nd runner-up, Durga Khadka was rewarded for the best hair, Neelam Kaur for the best dress and Sumitra Shrestha for the best personality. While all beauticians were praised by the audience muttering compliments during the entire show, the quality of the models wearing the designs was also highly appreciated. The event was punctuated by a performance by Shreya Sotang and a short dance show from Manisha Rai's Step Dance Institute making it an entertaining show for the audience.
