Meet Our Award-winning Hairstylists

INdustry Hair and Esthetics opened its doors in 2016 after Award-winning Stylists David and Marilyn decided to venture out on their own and created an environment where everyone felt like they were “home”. They had a vision to mentor and establish a team that was like minded and as hungry as they were. All employees are graduating students of Marilyn from the Cosmetology program at the Niagara College where she taught and mentored. In just a short time, the whole team has been involved in competitions world wide. From provincial to international competitions, they have worked hard together to put INdustry Hair on the map!

David and Marilyn are also proud members of GOLDWELL National artistic Education Team!

Contessa Awards

The Canadian Hairstylist of the Year Awards – the Contessas – are the gold standard in Canadian beauty awards with the longest-running track record of excellence. Since 1988, each year the Contessas bring 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, from coast-to-coast. Winning a Contessa is not only good for your portfolio and reputation – it’s great for business and opening doors!

How Are the Winners Chosen?

Two prestigious panels of independent experts are responsible for assessing the entrants. Judging for the photo-based awards is performed blindly with the identities of the entrants remaining anonymous. The first round is live judging, with judges selected from within the Canadian professional beauty industry. The second round is completely online, and judges are international experts in hair and beauty. In the past, this panel has included beauty editors, photographers and celebrity hairstylists.
