Contessas 2012: Four finalists give us their top hair tips



 - Contessas 2012: Four finalists give us their top hair tips

November 11 wasn't just Memorial Day for this stylish crowd. For the 24th year in a row, hundreds of Canada's groomed and gorgeous crowded into the foyer and Grand Ballroom of the Toronto Sheraton for the Contessa Hairstylist of the Year Awards. Glammed-up finalists competed for prizes in 23 categories during the gala hosted by Bill Rowley - all 10 provinces were represented. 

wewomen spoke to four finalists in the "Newcomer" category, including category winner Melissa Blom, to find out what they think is hot for fall, what to do when it looks like an animal died on top of your head (aka bad hair day) and how to choose the right shampoo.
