Takhini Hot Springs' Frozen Hair Contest

Just outside of Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada, there are a set of hot springs called the Takhini Hot Pools. They're now part of a privately owned facility where visitors can relax in hot water. It doesn't close during the winter. In fact, during the month of February, the site holds a frozen hair contest.

Participants lay in the hot water while wiping cold water into their hair. This is best done when the temperature is about -4º through -22ºF.  10 to 30 minutes of careful shaping can result in beautifully sculpted, completely frozen hair.

About 20 people participated in the contest this year. Miléna Georgeault, Maxime Gouyou Beauchamps, and Fanny Caritte won it this year with this photo.
