Congratulations to Heidi Kenney from Yarmouth, N.S., on her first-place win in the “So You Think You Can Style?” holiday hair contest! We caught up with Kenney to find out more about her winning look.
As a salon owner and hairstylist for more than 30 years, Kenney has a passion for mentoring hairstylists and elevating her craft. “Having an opportunity to step out of the box to create hair for events and holidays is a great opportunity to be creative.”
For this contest, she was inspired by disco. She pre-lightened, toned and added vivid colour to her model’s curls, in horizontal slices from ear to parietal ridge.
As a Matrix brand ambassador, Kenney used the brand’s colour and styling products, along with a BaByliss curling want to create the retro-inspired curls.
When it comes to sharing her tips and tricks, she reveals that her favourite colour techniques are creative placement, because it is “more bang for your buck.”
Kenney, who won the 2020 Contessa award for Atlantic Hairstylist of the Year, is already looking forward to our next “So You Think You Can Style?” contests, with ideas for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day hair.
What theme would you want to see next?
Congratulations also goes out to our second-place winner, Potrus Potrus, and our third-place winner, Melissa Purcell.
Stay tuned for our next “So You Think You Can Style?” contest starting January 27!
