On Sunday November 1st Tonya(our super rad hair designer) and myself had the pleasure of attending the Contessa 2010 Canadian Hairstylist of the year awards. YES...it is true...we are proud to say that our industry recognizes the best of the best technical skill and creativity in hair, makeup and nails, interior salon and spa design, business practices and community service initiatives.
Tonya and I were invited by a Contessa Silver Sponsor and our Product Distributor
Collega for AVEDA
Here you can see ...Tonya, Cindy myself and Toni as we are about to eat some yummy food!
It has been an amazing journey opening up Baden Salon Spa. Collega AVEDA has been a tremendous support! George Civello, Joseph Coruso, and Glen Ritchie were also at the table with us but some how they escaped our "mini" photo shoot!
This is Cindy and I ...we go way back to the days at the Granite Club. Cindy is more then just Collega's Retail Sales Manager...she is an amazing friend and confidant!
Here is Tonya and I ...we were super close to the stage and all the action. I think Tonya had a great time! She was seat number "8" ... and her son was very proud of her! (Jordan... Tonya's son was super excited when she arrived home...he was greeted with a large jar of gum balls which was the center piece at our table!)
Here is some outstanding talents of dedicated professionals whose passion gives inspiration to all of us!
Baden Salon Spa would like to Congratulate all the Contessa Participants...your passion, vision, creativity, dedication and persistence is something to celebrate!
Just a little extra shout out to Jessica Maire Ellison for wining Nail Enhancement Artist of the Year...You Rock sister!
