2012 Contessa winner and L’Oreal Professionnel portfolio artist Guylaine Martel continued her stellar winning streak this year, taking home the top award, the 2012 HCF Trophy, at Haute Coiffure Française.
The owner of Quebec’s Salon Guylaine Martel Artistes Coiffure competed in Paris last weekend, along with several other Canadians.
Confirming the status of Canada in the hairstyling world, Canadians took home three of the four awards at the competition. In addition to Martel’s overall win, fellow portfolio artist Isabelle Lachance, from Oblic Spa Urbain, won the Public Prize and Colour Prize and was ranked second overall. Congratulations also go to Guy Roy, from Salon Robert Proulx, who was one of the top 10 finalists. Way to go, Canada!
