Great Lengths Canada is extremely proud to once again be a Sponsor of the very prestigious Contessa Awards. The Contessas, or the Canadian Hairstylist of the Year Awards, have a long-running track record of excellence, and as such are the gold standard in Canadian beauty. Since 1988, the Contessas have brought the best of Canada’s talent together to measure their creativity in a photo-based competition. The Contessas are open to all licensed beauty professionals across Canada, from coast to coast.
Categories span across all aspects of the beauty industry, with awards for hairstylists, colourists, nail artists, and makeup artists; salon interiors, and an award for community service.
Winners are blindly selected; identities of the entrants remain anonymous for the judging of the photo-based contest. The judges include two prestigious panels of independent experts from within the Canadian professional beauty industry… A Contessa win is a huge addition to an entrant’s portfolio and reputation.
Crowning the Contessa winners takes place at a glamorous gala in Toronto, with more than 1,000 guests in attendance. The big night kicks off with a lavish cocktail party and is followed by a formal sit-down dinner. The evening is rounded out with a show featuring the awards ceremony and inspiring presentations by leading hairstylists. The Great Lengths Canada team will be there to cover all the excitement!
