More than 100 of the province’s premier hair & beauty professionals gathered at Delta Calgary Downtown Hotel, on Sunday, September 22, for a glitzy night, put on to acknowledge the best of Alberta’s hair and beauty industry.
The prestigious awards were honored by Creative Oceanic but voted for by the public that are the real consumers and can identify valid reasons why particular businesses and professionals deserve to win due to either, their customer service, quality, facilities etc.
The Alberta Hair & Beauty Awards are dedicated to those who work hard to help people find their style and communicate it to the world as well as to those who make them look and more importantly, feel fantastic.
