It’s finally time… Back at the end of November, Acqua Salon hosted BLO 2.0. We’ve been waiting patiently to share these images and for those who’ve been wondering what took so long, we were waiting on a few magazine submissions to confirm with us on photo usage. Now that all is approved and ready to go! Here’s a brief recap of the night…
The event kicked off with opening act with “Dragon: The Jing Mo Kung Fu Lion” Dance Team. Flying down the runway in a dragon costume, it was the first moment of the night that stole everyone’s attention. The Lion Dance was captivating, colourful and lively, beautiful and full of energy. Couldn’t imagine a more suitable way to start off an evening of fashion, hair and glamour.
The evening also consisted of a few well-deserved awards. Hosts of the event, Brianna Cook and Pina Marfisi the owner of Acqua Salon, had awarded CEO & Editorial Director of Canadian Hair Dresser Magazine, Joan Harrison, with a recognition award for her achievement as a beauty professional and mentor to Canadian hair stylists. Raimondo Bianchi Owner of Bianchi’s Hair Designs was also awarded a recognition award for his contribution to the competition world, his passion for the industry and helping others.
Now, on to the hair and fashion! There were so many people involved in this event, and all deserve credit. So I will list the teams below with a couple of images from their set.
