Wella’s annual photo-based competition got a makeover!
For this year, entrants were required to submit a 60- to 90-second video (reel) on Instagram that showcases their creative process, story and end result, along with an explanation of why they decided to enter, their interpretation of Neo Flux (this year’s theme that encourages artists to “dig deep into your arsenal of abilities”) and descriptions of their techniques, colour formula and products in the caption.
Now it’s time to see which Canadians made the cut! Congratulations to Transformation Color Artist finalist Regan Wasson (@reganthehairkitten) of Glow Hair Studio in Ottawa, Ont., Editorial Style finalist Angie Hunt (@angie_hunt_) of Chatters Hair Salon in Winnipeg, Man., Bridal Style Artist finalist Kira McClenaghan (@parla.hair) of Parla Hair Bridal + Blowdry in Ottawa, Ont., and Curls and Coils Color Artist finalists Danni Kovtunenko (@danni.do.ups) of Concrete Blonde Hair & Body in Sherwood Park, Alta. and Belle Nicolaides (@mybellespace) of Gingersnap Salon in Sudbury, Ont.
The winners will be announced at the 2023 Beauty Envision Awards—The He(ART) of Hair on Monday, October 30th.
