BURNABY, BC, March 27 /CNW/ - Evangeline's sultry waves, Ryan's close cut
coif and Nelly's trendy tresses have won the hearts of hundreds of Canadian
hairstylists this year. Hairstylists from across the country have chosen their
top picks in AG Hair Cosmetics' 7th annual Best Canadian Celebrity Hair Awards
and named five celebs as tops for their trend-setting styles.
"This year's winners epitomize exactly what's hot for hair in 2007," says
Jami Symons, AG's Artistic Director. "Metals are huge this year in the fashion
and hair industries as we're seeing styles take their inspiration from
precious metals. For instance, Evangeline Lilly's waves are ripples of pure
molten metal; Ryan Gosling's short crop is like etched steel; and, Jay
Manuel's icy platinum hair is the strongest colour of the season."
Canada's largest independent manufacturer of salon hair care products, AG
Hair Cosmetics, created the hair awards to celebrate great Canadian style and
honour those who are setting trends around the globe. Hairstylists from across
Canada cast their votes for their favourite celebrity 'do in five categories.
The winners of AG's 7th annual Best Canadian Celebrity Hair Awards are:
- Sexiest Hair on a Canadian Actress: Evangeline Lilly
- Sexiest Hair on a Canadian Actor: Ryan Gosling
- Best Hair on a Musician: Nelly Furtado
- Most Interesting and Unique Hairstyle: Jay Manuel, America's Next Top
Model; Canada's Next Top Model
- Best Hair on a Canadian Athlete: Steve Nash, NBA basketball player
"The platinum silver color was a conscious decision to stand out in the
ever-changing world of fashion," says Jay Manuel of his eye-catching, unique
hairstyle. "I'm honoured - and flattered - to be recognized for my creative
decision, as it's a painful process to go through every two weeks. I guess I'm
now a slave to my hair colour!"
