It’s not just the clients the stylists need to impress, as they will be judged by legendary hairdresser Sam McKnight and award-winning hairdresser Lisa FarrallAlong with a weekly guest judge, Sam and Lisa will use their triumphant experience and knowledge as they offer advice and guidance to push the contestants to create incredible hairstyles. The judges will also be in charge of deciding who is sent home and who’ll be named The Big Blow Out Champion.


 “You would not believe how excited I am to be hosting The Big Blow Out. It’s full of drama, dedication, excitement and most importantly, creative hairstyles on all hair types that will be sure to blow your socks off. I’m looking forward to meeting the contestants and seeing what they come up with. Ready, set, style!”
