The annual Toronto Revel in Beauty show, presented by the Allied Beauty Association (ABA), is right around the corner! Taking place on April 14-15, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, the exciting two-day event will feature educational and inspirational headliners you won’t want to miss.
Rob the Original
Upon moving to San Antonio, Texas, from Los Angeles, Rob the Original initially aspired to be an artist and never would have thought his path would lead him to become a barber.
He has a background in drawing, which has changed the way people look at haircuts and this has enabled him to develop a new way of thinking outside of the box in terms of what a barber does while pushing his creative boundaries.
Celebrity hairstylist Candy Shaw, (who will also be part of the Leading Ladies panel this year!) grew up in the business of beauty, being the daughter of former award-winning hairstylist, Jamison Shaw.
Shaw has trained in Paris and specializes in balayage and highlights and is highly recognized worldwide for her hair painting and balayage education. She is also the creator of professional hair product company, SUNLIGHTS balayage.
Philip Wolff is a celebrity hairstylist, master hair cutter and influencer best known for his bold and modern take on classic styles.
Having developed an independent education movement based around modern ways of cutting and colouring hair, he is also a global platform artist, educator and ambassador for Matrix L’Oréal and has headlined and mentored other hairstylists across the globe.
As a charismatic industry icon, Tracey Hughes (who is also the founder of the Leading Ladies panel!), is best known for placing a focus on empowering other women in the business.
