Like A Mom | Mothers Day Contest

April 22, 2010

Alrighty folks, we’ve made a video so you know what that means: Contest time!

This is a Facebook-based Mother’s Day giveaway, and is called the “Like A Mom” contest. Here’s the video to explain, with text beneath if it’s not clear.

So, just to go over that again, any mother (so your friend if she’s a mom, your mom, it doesn’t matter) can win a haircut and $50 giftbasket from Toni & Guy, makeup done by Melissa Leach, and a photoshoot with us, Nordica Photography (all carried out in Vancouver).

To enter a mother, it’s very simple. Go to our Facebook Page ( and upload a picture of the mother you’re entering. Remember that you can enter as many mothers as you wish, and we encourage you to tag the mothers you enter (so we know their names!).

Once the mother’s photo is up, ‘Like‘ her and get your friends to as well. The mother with the most ‘Likes‘ on her photo wins the prize package.

To see all of the mothers who have been entered into the contest, you go to our Facebook Page and click the tab that says Photos. There you will see Fan Photos where the mothers photos are, and you can ‘Like‘ the mother you want to win!

The contest closes at noon on Mothers Day and the package must be carried out in May.

That’s it!

Here is a bit more information about the contest sponsors, Toni & Guy and Melissa Leach:

TONI&GUY are huge. Really huge. Basically, you can find a TONI&GUY anywhere in the world, and they are leaders in hair and makeup styling. We’re cooperating with one located on Alberni Street downtown Vancouver, and they’ve donated a hair cut and a skookum gift basket for the lucky mother. Here’s a bit about them:

TONI&GUY is an international icon founded over forty years ago at a single salon in London. Bruno Mascolo and his brothers under the guidance of three generations of creative talent and vision have built the TONI&GUY name into a powerful brand. TONI&GUY Salons and TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy’s provide more than a hairstyle; they offer a complete fashion lifestyle. The Mascolo family’s lifelong commitment is the driving force in the hairdressing industry. Through their uncompromising emphasis on education they have impacted and revolutionized the industry throughout the world.

Here’s a bit about the lovely lady who’ll be doing the makeup at the photoshoot. Her name is Melissa Leach. We love her and here’s a bit more info about her:

Melissa is known for creating beautiful hair and make-up, in all forms. She has been in the industry for 10 years and has had many opportunities to advance her career and travel around the world; Italy, Spain, Toronto, Minneapolis, New York. She is constantly moving forward and is always up to date with new looks.  She is committed to her career at Ego Lifestyle Aveda Salon, and is featured as a Master Stylist and Bridal Specialist. She has recently began working with Nobasura, an agency in Vancouver, where she focuses on freelance and editorial work. New York Fashion Week is a must for Melissa, and is often jet setting back and forth from Van to NY. She has currently worked on ETalk Canada and will be featured in May as a Celebrity stylist.
