The tour will visit seven college campuses across the country throughout the month of April to discover and cast two hosts for HEADHUNTER, an upcoming web series premiering this summer on Style Stage (www.noisey.com/stylestage).
The Headhunter College Tour will feature a full-size tour bus that will travel across the U.S., hosting live auditions at each stop to find a male and female host of HEADHUNTER.

"Personal style and self-expression are tremendous in the music scene, especially among emerging artists," said Debora Koyama, Assistant Vice President of Marketing, Garnier Fructis. "Our hosts will act as your trusted curators of style, giving unique insider access to the looks they're seeing now with a nod to what's coming next."
