The Canadian Hairstylist of the Year Awards — the Contessas — are Canadas longest-running and most prestigious awards honouring excellence and creativity in salons and among salon professionals across Canada.
The Contessas invite licensed hair, nail and makeup professionals to compete in 24 categories, 22 of which are photography-based and include the new Master Colourist category. The Contessa Community Service Award and Salon Business Excellence Award round out the competition.
Winners are announced at the annual Contessa gala, a black-tie event held in Toronto and hosting about 1,000 attendees from across Canada.
At the 21st annual show, international guests included Damien Carney, Ann Mincey, Sue Pemberton, Kevin Murphy and Felicity Davis. Chad Taylor from Moods in Vancouver, BC was named Canadian Hairstylist of the Year.
