Hair Magic: L’Oréal Color Trophy 2013

June 15, 2013 - 9:30 am

Who knows you better than your hairstylist? Most of us would say absolutely no one. Swapping out a stylist is like ending a relationship. And like a boyfriend or girlfriend, it’s damn hard to find a good one.

Many of fashion and beauty’s most stylish hunt for the best to keep their tresses in check. And stick with them. The result is true bespoke beauty guidance and hair updates that make up their signature look over time. Fabulous and ever-prettied-up creative director of fashion line EDIT and host of FASHION television Jeanne Beker (@jeannebeker) looks great, always, and stands by her own man—Gregory Parvatan of Rapunzel Salon in Toronto—who has been her personal hair sage since 1979. That’s love.

I thank my own stylist, Michael at Civello on Queen Street in Toronto who has helped me grow out my once Gaga-inspired, blunt bang-bob into long, amazingly healthy curls and waves. His patience and knack for knowing exactly how much to cut—what I’ve dubbed “the micro-trim” ®  has been the result of many, many wow moments among my friends and peers.

Like: “Holy shit, your hair is so longgggg!” It is. And I have Michael to thank for that.

And so, the annual L’Oréal Color Trophy gala (its debut in Toronto) is a giant thank you to the hardworking and talented hair artists across Canada: to award them for their talent and challenge the best in the business with insane on-stage competitions. To call it hair performance art would be an understatement. It was like Cirque du Coiffure or something. I. Got. Chills.

The magic started backstage. As soon as I arrived I was whisked behind a velvet curtain by L’Oreal’s lovely Jill Fowler to get dolled up by four-time Canadian Hairdresser of the Year, Tony Ricci.

Cue Cinderella moment.

The rest was a whirlwind of dinner, drink, dazzle, magic, hypnotism and hair mastery like you’ve never seen.

Check out the Instagram snaps below for an amazing night of hair!


My long, wavy look by Tony Ricci. “Divine dahhhling!”


Pin-curled models backstage. They look cute now but get ready for their glamazon looks!


Stylish girls dress alike: L’Oreal’s Jess Chan (left) and 1Milk2SugarsPR’s Priya Chopra (middle) and yours truly (right) wearing our colours. I’m wearing a fabulous lavender number by TwoBirds.


No time to waste: let the show begin!


Sculptural hair creations, gilded onesies and lots of face glitter. My kind of look.


International ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel, Eric Zemmour, whips long blond hair into a chic-flaxen short cut and makes every single woman in the room want a long bob. Including me!


Glamazon posse, centre stage. The crowd is mesmerized.


The winners! The prize? A complimentary trip to Paris, the biggest trophy, street and industry cred’ and a whole lot of bragging rights.
