Miss USA 2013 Contestants Get Glam with Team CHI!
The artists responsible for the voluminous, cascading manes of the 2013 Miss USA contestants can only come from glam-squad—the official 2013 Miss USA CHI Styling Team! These expert stylists created the looks for all contestants in the preliminary competition, but now they’re gearing up for the big event—the 2013 Miss USA Competition this Sunday, which will be airing LIVE from Las Vegas at 9 pm ET on NBC.
And the stylists are just as giddy as the contestants! Tammy Mixon, CHI Lead Stylist says “What I love most about being backstage is the excitement of creating everyone's look on a live show timeframe.” There is a lot adrenaline pumping backstage—and maybe even a little bit of sweat—but the results are always flawless, polished and stunning! “When we are behind the scenes it is a bit stressful – you can almost feel the butterflies and nerves that the girls are feeling, but it is our job to keep them calm and relaxed and remind them that they are ready for this,” says Anna Cantu, CHI Creative Artist.
Play Favorites. To keep the contestants looking their best, Anna selects her weapon of choice, “I used the CHI ARC at prelims and it is definitely my new go to curling tool for backstage! After styling so many girls, so quickly, for a long period of time we all experience some wrist pains and don’t have time to slow down. With the CHI ARC, I can go much faster!”

Keep it Moving. Another pageant tip? Make sure those curls can bounce! “I always make sure the hair has lots of movement—beautiful flowing hair looks so graceful when they walk out on the stage.” says Rocky Vitelli, CHI Creative Artist.
