From our cover choices to visual features to online, we’re constantly curating the images of hairstylists from around the world; not to mention that Canadian hairstylists represent some of the top talent. As we head into 2017, our editors took a look back on the past year and selected a few of their favourites of the year gone by, from both international and Canadian artists.
