TikTok's community has been growing at an incredible pace since the start of the pandemic, and unique new talents are being discovered daily on the platform. The most ambitious parlay their popularity into business opportunities, transforming entertainment into entrepreneurship, a mindset supported and lauded both by Glamhive and Mary Kay, particularly now, as the world opens up to a "new normal" with many embarking on new careers.

Both companies believe that now is the time to rally around talent - from the established to yet-to-be-discovered stars - to help them develop their personal brands, one of the keys to style industry and entrepreneurial success. Thus, they are announcing Step & Repeat, the first-ever global style competition on TikTok, giving structure, recognition, and rewards to winners weekly.

Glamhive and the Mary Kay Global Design Studio have partnered to create Step & Repeat as a global stage open to anyone who wants to explode onto the international scene and get recognized for their incredible talents in wardrobe, makeup, and hair styling.

Each week, Step & Repeat's host, Johnny Wujek (celebrity clients include: Katy Perry and Mariah Carey), will announce a theme-based challenge, and TikTok users will create their best wardrobe, makeup, or hair style look for that theme. Videos will incorporate the show's custom sound, "Step & Repeat," the hashtag #stepandrepeat, and the hashtag associated with each challenge, enabling all entries to be discoverable by the show's judges.

The show's celebrity judges Nicole Chavez (celebrity clients include: Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Bell, and Catherine Zeta-Jones), Claire Sulmers (CEO and Founder of media and e-commerce company, Fashion Bomb Daily), and Andrew Fitzsimons (celebrity clients include: The Kardashians) will duet the best looks from around the world and cast their votes for winners in each category. In addition, the show will incorporate special guests doing surprise duets; TikTokers can duet each other to combine looks and cheer on their favorite participants.

At the end of each challenge, host Johnny Wujek will announce the winner in each category: wardrobe, makeup, and hair. Each winner will receive a cash prize and a one-hour mentoring session with one of the nineteen industry leaders stepping up to provide mentorship.

At the end of the five weeks, Step & Repeat will announce one overall winner for each category, crowning it the very best in wardrobe, makeup, and hair based on entries from all over the world.
