The competition was adjudged by a panel of judges which consisted of industry experts and celebrities such as Karen Whyte, Kishu Gomez, Sangeetha Weeraratne and Ramzi Rahaman. 

The winners of the respective competitions were Nail Technician category – Nadeesha Sanjeewani Athauda, Make Up category – Rhodilla Gagarin Jose, and Hair Styles category – Kamal Priyantha.
