Seasons' Best

"Seasons" was the theme of the 19th annual Contessa Awards held recently in Toronto. The gala event, which drew 1,200 salon professionals from around Canada, celebrated the changing nature of the beauty industry as it honored the best of Canadian talent in 21 regional and national styling categories as well as in  interior design.

Edwin Johnston of The Cutting Room in Nanaimo, British Columbia, received both Canadian Hairstylist of the Year and British Columbia Hairstylist of the Year Awards.

A portion of the Contessa Awards ticket sale proceeds benefitted Canada's Look Good, Feel Better program for cancer patients.
