Contessa Awards Über-glam Gala 2014
The 26th annual Contessa Awards were held at the Westin Harbour Castle and they brought together Canada’s best hairstylists, makeup and nail artists. It was a night of beauty and magic.
In the cocktail hour pre-party, CND held a ‘mani red carpet’ where one’s hand literally walked down a mini red carpet. Hors d’oeuvres like duck with mango, shrimp, pork and pineapple, chicken and beef were served.
The evening was hosted by Noah Cappe (star of Food Network’s Carnival Eats) and the theme was “Elemental,”reflecting the synergy of hair and makeup with wind, water and fire.
Salon magazine president, Laura Dunphy spoke at the beginning as did Sherry Abbott from Look Good Feel Better, a program that teaches beauty techniques for those undergoing cancer treatments.
