P&H Salon and Spa takes on the Canadian Contessa Awards

P&H Salon and Spa hit the red carpet on Sunday Nov. 9 for the annual Canadian Contessa Awards, a night where industry comes together to celebrate the year’s hottest looks and most talented stylists.

After submitting a portfolio of work, selected stylists are shortlisted to award winning categories.

Each of the stylists’ collection are judged by industry professionals from all over Canada.

Two members from P&H Salon and Spa made it to the finals, this year. Award winning stylist, Fay Linksman was nominated for Canadian Colourist of the year for and Fabrizio Perciballi for Men’s Hairstylist of the year.

Linksman’s command of colour has led to international recognition. Linksman chose to stray from her big updo’s often seen in her editorial work. Vidal Sassoon was her source of inspiration.

“I wanted to work with something different, something more with geometric, clean lines,” Linksman said.

Perciballi has a true eye for men’s style. With his mysterious ‘Mad Men’ look, vintage collides with modern as he creates sharp, contrasting lines with dramatic volume.

“What inspired me to do it? I saw a mug shot from Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash,” Perciballi. “It’s definitely a 1950s bad boy look.”

At the end of the night, Perciballi walked away with the prestigious award.

“Hearing your name being called for something you worked so hard for… It was unreal. It felt like I was dreaming,” Perciballi said. “All the work you put into something and you make it to the finish line.”

It doesn’t stop here for the budding stylist. He has big plans for himself and the whole P & H team.

“Next year, I want to do a collaboration with the salon,” he said. With modesty and graciousness, Perciballi always maintains his team spirit.

“I owe a lot of the work I’ve done to the people I work with and I think we have what it takes to win Salon Team of the year in 2015.”

Congratulations to our very own Fabrizio Perciballi!

The two stylists are back to their chairs looking for new inspiration for the coming award season.
