With our newest Contessa category, Freestyle, we asked Canadian hairstylists from coast to coast to show us their best shot. Without any creative limitations, it’s no surprise that there was some fierce competition in this category!
A big thank-you to everyone who entered. Stay tuned for our special Contessa 2021 finalist announcement on October 15th. Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for all the details, including the most up-to-date info on the virtual gala!
