“We’d like to thank all of the hockey fans that participated in our #ShowYourFlow campaign and showed us their amazing hockey hair flows,” said Lisa Hake, vice president of marketing and communications at Great Clips, Inc. “Hockey hair comes in all shapes, sizes and styles and that was definitely put on display over the last several weeks. We’re excited to memorialize and reward these six fans for their hockey hair passion and hockey fandom.”
Submissions were scored by a judging panel based on their creativity and originality, their passion for hockey and hockey hair, and the overall quality and appeal of their content. Members of the all-star judging panel included two-time NHL All-Star and New Jersey Devils Center Jack Hughes, Canadian women's hockey star Sarah Nurse, national talent show finalists and TV stars The Cline Twins, and hockey fan and influencer Jesse Pollock.
