Battle Of The Strands 2013 - Lamborghini on stage

I really enjoy these events and this year marks my third year in having seen this epic collection of hair gurus shine. I attended this year, as previous years, as guest of Lamborghini Las Vegas who had a beautiful orange Lamborghini Gallardo on stage.

This event is all about the hair. Lots and lots of hair. Long beautiful hair.

Each of the performers had huge masses of amazing hair. As part of the competition all that amazing work has to be completed in hair…

Battle for Boobies

BATTLE FOR BOOBIES

Battle of the Strands has launched a breast cancer awareness campaign and fund raiser. A Dollar of each ticket sold will go to breast cancer research.

BOTS has partnered with Cure for a Cause to fund the research teams at STOP CANCER.

Battle for Boobies & Cure for a Cause Fund at STOP CANCER is currently supporting the research of Richard J. Pietras, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and the Director of the Stiles Program in Integrative Oncology at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. His research focuses largely on the biology and treatment of women’s cancers, with an aim toward translation of basic research findings “from the bench to the bedside.”

BOTS believes that if there is one industry that can take a stand against it, it is the beauty industry.

We ask you to join them in this cause! Strand Up, Be Proud!

A.D. Cook, Miss Harley Rosalie and Tom Brazill (Lamborghini Las Vegas).

The after hours party was at Ghostbar on the 55th floor atop The Palms Ivory Tower. Great location too. Ghostbar has a sensual, sophisticated and elegant feeling about it.

Las Vegas Strip View from teh Palms

And talk about a view… you can see most of the valley and the Las Vegas Strip from here. Stunning.

All in all, a fantastic evening of celebration and beauty in true international style. I’m already looking forward to next year. Cheers!
