AWARD_BattleSalons001On June 17th 2010 Norma Jean’s Atomic Kitten Salon became Bakersfield’s “TOP SALON” as the grand prize winner of the prestigious Battle of the Salons competition.

Battle of the Salons is a competitive runway event, held in a single elimination tournament style, winner-takes-all, extreme hair styling competition judged by a panel of the industries top stylists.
For six weeks, competing Salons worked with their staff and models to come up with the most amazing and creative hair styles based on randomly selected themes.

Each week, competing salons were then critiqued and awarded points based on dramatic hair themes, make-up application, and model’s ability to work the runway.

Atomic Kitten Salon prevailed as the most creative and detail oriented of all competing salons, and consistently scored high for the use of “real” hair and true hair colors in the majority of their creations and was one of the only salons to receive several “perfect” scores.
