Turkish channel Star TV has ordered the makeover competition series The Final Cut Down (pictured) from Armoza Formats.

The 30 x 30-minute local version of the format will air be titled Benim Kuaförüm and will begin airing daily later this month. It is being produced in partnership with Production House.

In The Final Cut Down, five hairdressers compete to give a passerby a new look in three hours. The passerby is chosen by their rivals and the makeover is scored by the competitors, with the highest scorer winning cash and the title of Best Hairdresser. The show travels to a different city each week and visits area salons.

“Daily stripped formats are a big need in the market and The Final Cut Down addresses this need with a colorful and character-driven format that targets the very important daytime female audience,” said Armoza Formats CEO Avi Armoza in a statement.

More than 80 episodes of the series have aired in the Czech Republic on TV Barrandov.
