Of hair and fromage: The Contessa Awards

This past Sunday, the 21st annual Contessa Awards invaded Toronto’s Sheraton Centre with pastel curls and neon updos. The Contessas, put on by Salon Magazine, are like the Oscars of Canadian hair. Or maybe the Daytime Emmys, at least in terms of cheese level. Nowhere else can you see boy band dancers with lightsabres or models wearing spangled leggings and sporting wigs that look like bright yellow challah bread. All of this delicious fromage is in honour of country’s top stylists, makeup artists and nail art masters and we watch with relish, year after year.
