About the Contessa Gala
Crowning the Contessa winners typically takes place annually at a glamorous gala in Toronto, with more than 1,000 guests in attendance.
The big night kicks off with a lavish cocktail party, where you get a chance to rub shoulders with the best of the best in the industry. Guests enjoy a formal sit-down dinner before the big show, which features the awards ceremony and inspiring presentations by leading hairstylists (see past presentations on the Contessa video page). The magical evening ends with an exclusive after-party at one of the coolest clubs in the city.
