On Tuesday and Wednesday night our salons competed in the backstage live finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy to try and win a place in the Grand Final. Each team had to present a model to be judged on a catwalk presentation by some of the leading figures in the industry. After some nail-biting deliberation it was announced that our Covent Garden model styled by Kris and Caroline had made it through to the next stage of the competition – a huge achievement! From over 1000 initial entries, down to 540 regional finalists, and now just 36 Grand Finalists, the next step for our winning team is to to compete in the Grand Final on Monday 13th June in Central London. This final promises to be a thrilling and inspirational evening featuring spectacular hair shows by some of the most illustrious names in the industry, followed by a 5-course dinner and awards presentations.
Our other competing teams from Hampstead for the women’s award, and Richmond and Covent Garden for the men’s award also presented some incredible work and we were so proud to be represented by them at the competition.
The Colour Trophy is one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies in the hairdressing calendar, and the overall winners of the competition will be awarded a once-in-a-lifetime prize package, including a European photo shoot to showcase their winning look, a fashion shoot with a leading consumer glossy magazine, and multiple opportunities to promote their own work, and the salon, throughout their winning year. We have our fingers crossed for the final!
