Individuals will be invited to apply and be interviewed by a judging panel comprising professionals and eminent personalities in the fashion and beauty industry in Colombo. The selection process will narrow down the 14 participants of Miss Universe Sri Lanka 2016.

The makeover will be conducted by Revlon beauticians, with the hairstyles done by Ramzi Rahman Salons. Each of the 14 participants will receive training in hair and make-up techniques as well.
