The country’s top stylists gathered in Toronto on the weekend to attend the Contessa Awards, the Oscars of their biz. But the country’s best haircut isn’t in Toronto or Montreal or Vancouver, but in Edmonton. That’s where Tony Ricci, who was named hairstylist of the year, runs the Ricci Hair Co. Ricci was also honoured with three other awards, including a nod for the entire salon team. Some local talent was recognized; the Toronto winners, after the jump.
