Only in Canada would there be a place so cold that your hair literally freezes.

The Takhini Hot Springs in Whitehorse, Yukon, is the place to go if you want to take a toasty dip and end up with a frozen hair-do.

Every winter, the hot springs hosts a hair freezing contest. Visitors dunk their heads into the warm water and then expose their hair to the -30°C air in order to turn their hair into the perfect texture for some ice-cold styling.

The first place winner takes home $750 and a membership to the hot springs.

From frozen beards to straight-up wacky hair, it looks like contestants are pretty serious about taking home that – wait for it – cold-hard cash.
