Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
In the winter, the temperature is almost alwaysbelow zero.
So what better place to have a frozen hair style contest.
Yeah, it involves getting people to create the most unique hair style possible by freezing their hair.
Here's how it works. There's a resort near Whitehorse called Takhini Hot Springs, where people can soak in water that has a temperature of about 100 degrees.
The pools are outside, and the contest starts when the temperature dips into the minus 20s, which happens a lot in Whitehorse.
People get their hair wet, wait a few minutes until it starts to freeze and get stiff, and style it in such a way that is, uh, different. (Everybody stays immersed in the water up to their necks so they stay warm, except for their hair.)
I guess when it's winter, and you have cabin fever, you've got to think of something differnet to do, so why not freeze your hair?
