Hair Freezing Contest Puts Fun Into Frigid Yukon

Participants in the frozen hair style contest in
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada is definitely one of the world's cold spots.

In the winter, the temperature is almost alwaysbelow zero.

So what better place to have a frozen hair style contest.

Uh, what?

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?
