Considering how challenging this past year and a half has been for our community and how hard everyone has been working—both in the salon and creatively—we know how many of you are looking forward to unwinding while connecting with each other at the annual Contessa gala.
While we had hoped to be able to host a live, in-person event this year, we must prioritize the health and safety of our attendees and team.
After our widely successful virtual gala last year, we’re looking forward to connecting with you all at the Contessa 2022 virtual gala on Sunday November 7, 2021, which will be streamed live online.
This year’s gala will be an immersive experience that combines the best of both worlds—with live and pre-recorded elements. Our host, Bill Rowley, will be live in studio and joined by some special guests!
Whether you’re a finalist, sponsor or attendee, we look forward to seeing you—safely and virtually—in an incredibly interactive and energetic show you won’t want to miss!
The night will begin with our red carpet at 7:30 p.m. EST, featuring Contessa-winning special guest host, Palma N’Sheluvzit! Montreal-based DJ Fafa Khan will also be live in studio.
Our highly anticipated awards ceremony will begin at 8:30 p.m. EST with 24 award categories, along with inspiring presentations from Wella Professionals’ global ambassador Darren Ambrose of D&J Ambrose from London, England, and Matrix Canada’s artistic team, led by artistic director, Rodrigo Araneda!

We look forward to reuniting and reconnecting with beauty pros from across the country—and around the world—in our one-of-a-kind experience for the biggest night in professional beauty!
