Ottawa/Kanata Award Winning Hair Salon
Blushes – Silas Tsang – 1st Winner of L’Oreal Color Trophy 2013 – Live Masters Competition
It was an evening that promised magic and we watched magic happen Sunday June 9, 2013 at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto for the L’Oreal Color Trophy Awards Gala – Grande Finale. For over 15 yrs this event has been celebrating the artistry and individualism of the top in their field – hairdressing. Passion, beauty, and fashion are all brought together.
The Masters category was new for 2013. Entry to this category required competitors to have a minimum of 15 yrs industry experience and at least 1 award national or international. Each Masters portfolio of work was sent to a panel of world-renowned international judges. All Masters chosen went straight to the finals.
It was so exciting to watch Canada’s top Masters compete live for the 1st time on stage. Competing were 8 of 10 finalists. With only 30 minutes on the clock, they had to create an editorial look on a professional model that they only saw on stage for the first time. The look had to compliment 3 things…the color, the wardrobe and the make-up.
It was amazing to witness the pure talent of Silas Tsang live on stage…creating a braided ponytail – resembling a dragon.
Blushes also won the Regional Award – Ontario Color Trophy Award, out of 6 competing finalists.
Blushes wins the Lancôme Award (best make-up) with make –up artist Elena Pacienza. This award recognizes technical ability and contribution to the overall look.
