Entries for our Contessa Freestyle category are now open! We’re asking you to take your best shot and enter your photo on Instagram for a chance to win the Freestyle title at the 33rd annual Contessa Awards.
This category is open to bona fide hairstylists and colourists working in Canada. With no rules or restrictions on creativity, we can’t wait to see what you got!
One photo + Instagram = #ContessaFreestyle
All you need to enter is have one photo and an Instagram account!
- Download our official Contessa 2022 overlay here (entries without the overlay may be disqualified).
- Post your photo on Instagram and use the hashtag #ContessaFreestyle2022 in your caption to enter.
Note: One entry per person. Freestyle entries cannot be entered into any other Contessa category.
Best of all, Freestyle is completely free to enter! The entry deadline (September 8th) is quickly approaching, so don’t miss out!
Plus, with our new “Comeback” rule this year, any past, non-winning work can be re-entered for select categories, including Freestyle.

Adding the overlay:
Adding the overlay is easy using the Layers function in Photoshop, Photoshop Lightroom, etc. but you can also use free apps downloaded on your phone such as Lay.Over (from Protocols LLP) that have layering functions. If you have an Apple computer, you can add overlays in Preview by following the downloadable instructions below.
