2020 Beauty Envision Awards Submissions

Jenn:  Everyday Sass

Jenn Sharpe - 2020 Beauty Envision Award Submission

My inspiration of the competition was based on a few things. I was looking for something that was springy (purple and yellows) with a bit of sass and spunk but still something she would feel comfortable wearing everyday.

It's always nice to have something you can dress up and dress down depending on the occasion. The undercut is a blue/black which adds some dimension and depth drawing your eye to it (My favorite part of her color) the top is then a rich purple and the front is a combination of 3 different colors.

Again, adding dimension to the hair and contrast that catches your eye. There are 2 tones of violet and a blond in the front fringe area.

The makeup artist did a great job adding the yellow to compliment the overall violet tones in her hair. This color and cut took me 4hrs. Salon cost would be $165.

Alexis:  The Unicorn

My inspiration for my look came from our industry of hairstylists.

We are always pushing boundaries. I wanted to create a piece of art, something you can’t wear everyday with a shape and a vision in mind.

Push myself outside the box, push my limits and I’m very happy I did.

This look would cost approximately $350 in the salon. It took me 6 hours to create this look including styling.

Alexis - 2020 Beauty Envision Award Submission

Kat:  Delicate Doll

My inspiration for the 2020 Beauty Envision Awards was... Delicate Doll
With this being my third year competing I wanted to create something that complimented my colouring style. This final look took 10 hours start to finish!

I wanted this model to leave with a more natural balayage so that leaving this photo shoot she could still wear this colour day to day.

Her hair was naturally brunette, with a few greys sporadically throughout. We covered those, added in foilayage & toner, a few fashion colours, and started on her updo!

My model's hair piece was added in afterwards and consisted of 50+ coloured hair swatches that took me 2 hours to build! After the help of our make-up artist and photographer, this was the final look submitted to BEA!

This look would cost approximately $500 in salon. 

Kat - 2020 Beauty Envision Award Submission

Sherri:  Vintage Hairnet

Sherri - 2020 Beauty Envision Award Submission

My entry for the 2020 Beauty Envision Awards was inspired by a vintage hairnet. I really wanted the focus to be on that netting.

I created it entirely out of hair and love having the strands sweeping across her face.

My models color may not be vibrant and bright but don’t let that fool you. We had to lighten her completely to achieve an even canvas. Then I did a soft root shadow to create an easier transition when her natural grows in.

I really wanted her to have a beautiful soft balayage. Total time spent on her color was approximately 6 hours at a cost of around $250.00. Her style took 5+ hours and was a blast to do. Styling for something like this would cost around $150.00.

Meghanne:  The Mermaid

My inspiration for this color, came from inspiration ideas on the Wella Pinterest board, but I was also imagining colors like this for awhile.

So in the end my inspiration came from the colors of the ocean. The different depths and colors and tone the ocean has inspired these colors.

I spent 9 hours on this color that’s included a full global lightening, tone, a cut then fun color. The results came out perfect for the length of hair my model's hair and for how much of it she had.

If you would like something done like this in the salon you're looking at $350.00 plus, depending on thickness and length of hair. This is one of my favourite fun color applications I have done.

Girls Need You Project

Sharper Image Hair Design Supports the Girls Need You Project

Why We Support Girls In Kenya

Did you know that many young, school aged girls in Kenya miss complete school days because of their menstrual cycle?

They cannot attend school because they lack the access to necessary supplies to enable them to live their life and handle their periods. The impact on a young girl missing school is devastating. Our world needs well educated children to rise up and become community leaders.

Where we live, it's easy to take for granted the necessary supplies to effectively handle your menstrual cycle each month. We have teamed up with other local hair salons to help support the Girls Need You Project because we want these young students to stay current with their education and not miss any school days.

How You Can Help

The project is fundraising to provide essential feminine hygiene kits for school girls in Kenya. Each kit will include:

  • 2 pairs of underwear
  • 2 shields
  • 8 washable liners ("the pad")
  • soap
  • washcloth & carrying bag
  • usage instructions

We know that supplying these kits helps to encourage and empower these girls by giving them hope and dignity that will help them to succeed in their studies.

Kits cost $10 each and includes all the essential items a girl can use each month. These feminine hygiene kits are reusable and washable which makes them a highly sustainable investment in the success of each girl who receives one.

Please call us at the salon with any questions. Use the button below to donate direct to the project through A Better World of Canada.

Sharper Image Submissions by Stylist

Jenn:  Show Stopper

Jenn Sharpe - Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

My inspiration for my model was something that anyone could wear on a daily basis in their day to day life but also be a bit of a show stopper.

I want women to be able to say, "I have something eye catching and the confidence to wear it".

Depending how you style this look, it can be more conservative or bold. 

This is why I really enjoy working with vibrant colors.

To recreate this look on short to medium length hair, it could include pre-lightening the section that you want the vivid color on, then do the color, cut and style.

It took me 4 hours to achieve this look and for a cost of approximately $200.

Kat:  Powerful & Fierce

My inspiration to execute this look was for the subject to look and feel powerful and fierce!

This took 17 hours altogether.

My model started with very dark hair and we had to do multiple blonding sessions with a cleansing wash, balayage and a heavy amount of highlights and toner.

We then applied her shadow root and full head of fashion colours.

She also sat patiently for an hour to get her make up done!

We then continued into the photo shoot to finalize my Beauty Envision Awards submission.

This look cost approximately $605 in the salon.

Sherri:  Elegant Bride

Sherri Bouchard - Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

When I heard Wella had added a bridal category into the Beauty Envision Awards competition, I was determined to enter it.

I felt that this would be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talents of the salon. 

My beautiful model had previous highlights that had grown out a lot.

So I did a full set of highlights, refreshed her ends and brightened her up.

Knowing that the trends for brides are seeing more color, I added a soft pastel pink to complete the look.

Her cut and color took four and a half hours and her updo an additional two hours. Total service time of 6.5 hours.

The total cost would be approximately $300. Makeup is not included. 

Sherri:  Fiery Passion

My inspiration for this model is passion.

Passion to create and compete.

The smooth sections that shatter apart symbolize months of hard work and practice finally flowing into a beautiful work of art.

This model’s hair needed to be heavily lightened and recolored a fiery coral.

Total time invested between color, cut and style was approximately 8 hours.

The cost for this look would be approximately $350.

Sherri Bouchard - Second Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

Hunter:  Unconventional Beauty

Hunter Lane - Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

The look I created for the Beauty Envision Awards this year was inspired by using soft, subtle colors and techniques to create an unconventionally beautiful look.

I believe that there is no standard or guidelines for beauty, and there are so many ways you can combine different styles with different techniques to form a unique and interesting look.

My model was already a nice, light blonde, so I did a full head of foils in different pastel pinks and purples.

If I were to do this on a client, I would likely have to first do a bleachout ($130+) to get a nice even canvas. Then follow up and go in and do the full head of foils ($130). I would finish with my style ($40).

Total services would be approximately $300 for the hours it takes to achieve this look. 

Meghanne:  Dream Catcher

My inspiration for my hair design was a dream catcher.

Because I am in the student category for the Beauty Envision Awards, I wanted to be creative in a simple way to mostly show off the cut and color but also be unique with the style.

This look took me 11 hours to lighten, cut, tone, and design.

The model shown here had extremely long hair which required extensive cutting before I could start the color processes.

To recreate this look it would cost approximately $400.

Meghanne Campbell - Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

Jaimie:  Powerful Warrior

Jaimie Vanderzee - Beauty Envision Awards 2019 Submission by Sharper Image Hair Design

For my hair inspiration, I wanted to do something that made my model look like a very powerful warrior, but still feminine.

That is why I chose to do the big curls and a tight braid with the chain and still incorporate the soft pink in her hair.

My model already had pre-lightened blond hair so therefore all I had to do was put the pink color on and style it.

The cost for this look was $85 for the pink and $70 for the style. It took me 3 hours to complete this total look.
