Former Golden resident

Going to battle at Hair Wars

Coy Macdonald is a former Golden resident who has made waves in the hair industry in Calgary with a second place finish in Hair Wars.

Coy Macdonald is a former Golden resident who has made waves in the hair industry in Calgary with a second place finish in Hair Wars. The event  is a  runway hair and fashion competition, that pits some of the most talented people in the industry against one other in a creative battle.

Macdonald has worked in the hair industry for six years after graduating from Golden Secondary School in 2007.

Currently he works at Edges Salon and Spa in downtown Calgary.

Macdonald explained where he finds his inspiration.

“Often my inspiration is found through researching past trends and styles, yet also looking forward at what the European industry is currently trending, and combining the two to create looks that are commercial or salon artist specific.”

According to Macdonald a number of people from Golden, including his parents who still live in town, went to Calgary for the event.

“Seeing some familiar faces from out of province was definitely a highlight of the night,” he said. “Also, with my parents, attending the event, I knew it was not only the judges, competitiors, co workers, and crowd to impress, but my mother and father who came into the city from Golden.”

Macdonald said it took two months to prepare the hair pieces, models, makeup artists, fashion/wardrobe teams, and the stylists  to create the competition looks which had a steam punk feel.
