They are also the prizing partner for the series, with the winner receiving $100,000 furnished by Nexxus Salon Hair Care and an apprenticeship with the company.

In select repeat episodes of the show, Nexxus will sponsor the Bravo "INFO Frame," a new multi-platform technology that enables interactivity through text messaging and online at BravoTV.com for viewers to answer polls, trivia and send in comments to see them on-air. There will also be custom interactivity during the Nexxus commercials in these episodes using the Bravo "INFO Frame." Nexxus will also be sponsoring the series' live voting and Fan Favorite contest. On-air elements include customized vignettes featuring Nexxus stylist Roy Teeluck, who will also have a blog on BravoTV.com and will be featured as a guest judge on one of the episodes. On the digital side, Nexxus will sponsor the weekly online challenges. Additionally, Bravo will host national viewing parties where they will supply Nexxus products and branded beauty tips.
