I am such a slacker on the website these days because I've been poluting the internet with hair photos on Instagram! I'm sorry, not sorry. Haha
I caught wind of an Instagram contest hosted through Framar International. This company creates the little things that you would never consider to be so important in my career. From colour bowls & brushes to foil & foil dispensers, these guys got me covered.
All I had to do was post a before and after photo of my best work using their product (in this case, light silver foil - a personal fave!) and they would pick 10 winners to recieve some goodies. Hundreds of people entered the contest from Canada and the United States. Every day for 10 days, they showcased absolutely amazing colour transformations. On the 9th day, they featured ME! I couldn't believe it! I still cannot believe it! I haven't recieved confirmation but from my conversation with the Framar Representative, I think I was the sole Canadian winner!
It's very hard to put yourself out there amongst your peers, but I encourage everyone in every career field to try it. You learn so much from doing it (win or lose) and it only pushes you to be better.
On a side note, I am so lucky to have such rad clients like Ruby Soho who allow me to try new things for them to rock! You are the best!
