House of Koopslie wins Canada-wide award - Small Supplier of the Year 2016 from the Canadian Gift Association.
If you’ve been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed that we’ve had some exciting things happen in this first part of 2016, and we can’t wait to see what the remainder of the year brings.
It all started with Elysia Rotaru from the Canadian TV show Arrow wearing our headband. The whole experience was pretty surreal to be honest. Elysia took a photo of herself wearing our headband, shared it on social media, tagged us and then well honestly, we just about passed out.
Speaking of TV, we were recently invited to visit CTV Edmonton to do a segment on how to wear headbands. I got to tell the story of how I gave Taylor Swift a headband and then I did a live demo of “Sides-a-part” (on short hair!), 2 Minute Updo, and Halfway Twist. Even the anchor Rob Williams (@RobWilliamsCTV) got in on the fun, sporting his own spin on “Sides-a-Part”.
You can also check out our step by step instructions for even more pro headband wearing tips. We'd love to see photos of you rocking some of these looks. Make sure to tag us @houseofkoopslie #koopsliehead.
We were also very honoured to be featured in the May/June 2016 issue of Edmonton Woman Magazine. They have a spread that showcases awesome, locally owned businesses and we made the cut on page 29.
We also were very fortunate to participate in Beautiful Me - a fun and empowering day of hair, makeup, fashion, and motivational speeches for at risk and vulnerable local teens in and around Edmonton.
The event helps these teens to find their voice and feel beautiful in their skin, a mission that we believe in strongly as well. The event received some great newspaper coverage in the St. Albert Gazette. My dad was so proud he gave out copies to all our family and friends!
