On Sunday, June 5th, Hairstylists, barbers, students, apprentices and educators gathered at the Eikonic Academy in Mississauga, Ont. for the Uplift Hair Jam.
Hosted by education dean, Jessica Hoach and program director, Martin Truong, the event featured a wide range of educators who specialize in everything from editorial styling and bridal hair, to braids, barbering and much more.
Uplift Hair Jam was hosted in an effort to empower artists while providing them with a platform to share their knowledge with others in the industry—all while bringing people together for an “uplifting” night.
The educators who participated in the event included Antonio Quintieri, Lisa Tuff, Cathey Salerno & Frank Salerno, Miss Victorious, Benson Hedges, Divya Narine, Angela Debono, Michael Crispel, Anna Mirzoyan, Nancy Warren, and Thaddeus.
Among the attendees were Takara Belmont and Mizutani Scissors, who showed their support by attending the festivities to celebrate our talent-filled industry.
