When it comes to hair design contests, many will enter, but only one will win. An event featuring top salons and designers from across the region, Midwest Hair Battles presented Michigan vs. Missouri on June 22, 2014, at the Coliseum. Competition was fierce, but Missouri took home the trophy. Wu-Tang Clan affiliated rapper LA the Darkman and St. Louis rapper Murphy Lee made appearances.
