Temperatures to drop to freezing and SNOW to kick off 2019! Wondering what the Irish weather forecast for the New Year is in 2019? After an unusually mild Christmas, it is expected that temperatures will get back to normal for the start of January to allow the winter coats to be used again. 

The International Hair Freezing Contest started in February 2011 as a spin-off of the local Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous. Each winter, people from around the world visit the hot pools hoping to take part. The Hair Freezing Contest is unique in that it doesn't take place over a set stretch of dates.

If you're looking to instantly transform your hairstyle, head to Takhini Hot Pools in Canada's Yukon Territory. The natural hot springs there make it possible to bathe outdoors in extreme freezing weather, resulting in some impressive 'dos when people get their hair wet and let it harden. As Smithsonian reports, the practice has become so popular that there's now an annual competition to see who can freeze their hair into the most impressive shapes.

The International Hair Freezing Contest started in February 2011 as a spin-off of the local Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous. After competing in winter sporting events all day, athletes from the rendezvous would head to Takhini to take a mineral bath in one of the pools fed by the area's natural hot spring. The manager at the time turned the relaxation session into another competition when he asked bathers to sculpt their wet hair into frozen works of art. Whoever ended up with the best selfie won the contest.

What began as a fun activity among a small group of people has grown into a major event. Each winter, people from around the world visit the hot pools hoping to take part. The Hair Freezing Contest is unique in that it doesn't take place over a set stretch of dates. Rather, guests compete whenever it's cold enough outside to achieve the desired hair-styling effects, e.g. when -4°F or colder. Throughout winter, competitors can sign a form proving they were really there, and if it's cold enough to shape their hair in the pools, they can snap a selfie and submit their work to Takhini. Winners are announced in March, with Best Male Photo, Best Female Photo, Most Creative Photo, and Best Group Photo each receiving $750 and complimentary 30-soak memberships.
