Participants are asked to incorporate the show’s custom sound, “Step & Repeat,” and hashtags, #stepandrepeat, #glamhive, and #marykay to enter their video into the competition. For each challenge there will be three winners, hand-picked by the judges, who will receive a cash prize plus an hour one-on-one meeting with an industry mentor.

At the end of the four weeks, Step & Repeat will announce one overall winner for each category, crowning them the very best in wardrobe, makeup, and hair based on entries from all over the world. TikTok is the place for anyone with talent and a creative voice to share their gift on a global scale. Step & Repeat is the platform that gives you the opportunity to be seen and celebrated.
