The winning photo from the annual hair freezing contest at Takhini Hot Pools in Yukon, Canada is receiving international attention.Owner Andrew Umbrich says the contest for photos of hot springs users' frozen hair has been running for years, but he says 2015 was a standout. "Our winners really surprised us with their amazing pictures and video," he says.

Umbrich says the winning picture has already been shared more than 400 times on Facebook. Wednesday morning he woke up to emails from media outlets in Germany and the United Kingdom wanting permission to use it. Miléna Georgeault and her winning teammates also posted a video on Facebook. Georgeault says she was surprised to see that has more than 18,000 views.

The Yukoner worked with her partner Maxime Gouyou Beauchamps and their friend Fanny Caritte, who was visiting from France, to create their winning 'dos. "We put a lot of work into our hair," says Georgeault.

In the contest, participants bathe in hot springs in 40C temperature water but with air temperatures of -30C to achieve their crazy hairstyles
