Survey on contests!!!

I LOVE youtube contests!

I actually played in one and I couldn't believe that I won!


I always want to participate in other contests, but since I am a guru, I feel like I shouldn't. Like people might say it isn't fair that I participate etc... although I am just like all of the participants.

Anyway, I've been wanting to have a contest of my own. But I am not sure how you guys would like it.

Let me know:

1) What kind of prizes would you like to see from me?

2) Do you like a first place winner only or a 2nd, 3rd, 4th....?

3) If you like more than one winner, how many winners should there be?

4) What do you think is a fair way to determine the winner?

5) How long do you like for the contest to last?

6) What kind of contest would you suggest for my channel?

Anyway, send me your opinions!

That's great that you're choosing to have a contest! I think for your type of contest, you can include some cute prizes like hair pieces or accessories, or some smaller products that you like (lipstick, etc?)
I think it would be cool to have 3 winners, since that seems to be fair enough, in my opinion! If you're contest is going to be doing a look, I think that you should get people to post a short video response, and you can go through them and choose the winner.
It's hard to think of a contest for you because your channel is so diverse! Maybe something to do with pinups/different eras? But that just seems to be used a lot... Or maybe recreating one of your looks?
Hope that helps beautiful lady!

1st things first...
congrats on winning,hun!
your entry looks amazing

it really looks so classic
^_^

you did a fab job!

as for the contest...everyone likes contest..i for one loves them not because of the prize but because i gain experience every time i join contests!

1 - some would say MAC, but i think you should just give something that would really remind you of them...maybe throw in a couple of cosmetics, but i personally would love the hair accessories that you uses..like the flower pins...

2 - it would be nice if you can have several winners..hehe..

3 - i think 3 would be great!

4 - i think its better if you decide it..together with other people, like your husband & your friends. maybe you can do a poll too, but i think it should not influence your decision. go for someone who really did her best

5 - i guess 3weeks to a month, just so to have enough time to look for ideas & practice XD

6 - i would suggest you go for contest that would be 'classic' themed..it could be a movie themed...or you can maybe give one of you favorite song, then the girls will have to interpret it all by themselves..like make a music vid..hehe
im not sure im not good at suggesting contests...

hope you're having a nice weekend,hun!

1) What kind of prizes would you like to see from me?
Definetly hair things, like maybe flower clips or some cute bandanas or a Sallys gift card?!?

2) Do you like a first place winner only or a 2nd, 3rd, 4th....?
I think more than one winner would be great.

3) If you like more than one winner, how many winners should there be?
At the most 3
4) What do you think is a fair way to determine the winner?
I think a pool would be cool but ultimately you should have the final say.
5) How long do you like for the contest to last?
2-3 weeks would be ideal.

6) What kind of contest would you suggest for my channel?
I think with your channel there are tons of different contests you could do... You could maybe choose a movie like lets say Grease and the girls can choose their favorite character/scene and do that style... Just an idea.
I hope you do a contest I think you'll get tons of entries and it will be FUN!

I think it would be great if you were to have a contest!

1.Whatever prizes you pick should be things you like, whether it’s an actual cosmetic product or even some flowers that you use for your hair. It’s your channel so whatever you give should represent you in some way. Plus people subscribe to you because they like your style. :)

2. It’s nice when people have more than one contest winner.

3. I don’t really think you should have too many winners, so I think 3 would be good.

4. The fairest way to determine a contest winner, in my opinion, is for you to decide, and if you need more opinions, your family members. I don’t really like when other Youtube gurus bring in other Youtube gurus to help judge their contest because your subscribers, are subscribed to you, so in a way you know your subscribers, other gurus may not. Your family knows you and they know what you like so I think they would be good to turn to in case you can’t decide.

5. Contests don’t really seem like they should go on for a very long time, but a few weeks is fair. It allows enough time for people to see the video and respond to it.

6. As far as what type of contest to suggest…I have no clue. I do think it’s a good idea to have a comment prize winner, because some of us (like myself lol), are too shy to make videos. :)

What I do

I make hair tutorials on YouTube. But I created this blog to connect with my fellow writers/bloggers. I've also created a myspace account, but I don't like the format for blogging. I'd rather blog here. As far as something to note about me: I rarely have will power when it comes to dieting. I'd rather eat what I want, but in moderation. I like girly stuff, but I don't like doing my own hair. I rarely do my own hair, so if you saw me in the street, you'd probably not recognize me. But if you ever saw me, I would love it if you came to say hi. Thanks for reading my blogs.
