Here’s a go-to guide for new entrants to the Canadian Hairstylist of the Year Awards.
1) Do your due diligence — The 2017 Contessa Official Rules and Regulations will help answer any questions you may have about what is and isn’t allowed in this year’s entries. That’s where you’ll find everything you need to know about entering, including categories, file requirements and more. Keep them handy for your reference throughout the creative process.
2) Take a walk down memory lane — It’s important to know what’s been done before. A good place to start is to take a look at past entries from our winners and finalists. It’s a great way to help inspire your own creativity.
3) Details make a difference — We’re lucky that the Contessa Awards bring out some of Canada’s top talent. It’s important to invest the time and effort in your work to ensure that you’re putting your best foot forward. It’s the Canadian Hairstylist of the Year Awards, so cut hair, not corners!
4) Have fun with it — As cliché as it may sound, having fun with your entry is key and showcasing your passion for your industry will come through. Whether you become a finalist or not, it’s important to just take a chance and enjoy the process. Good luck!
