Our Manchester salon were once again successful at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy regional finals on Monday 11th April, being named as Grand Finalists in the next stage of the competition. As reigning North West winners for 2015, there was great expectation ahead of the team showcasing their model, and they didn’t disappoint! Showcasing their take on an AW16/17 inspired look, the team wowed the panel of high profile, award-winning judges, and were named 1 of only 4 salons to reach the Grand Final. We also had teams competing in the Men’s Image and Young Star categories. Unfortunately they did not reach the Grand Final this year, however their work was incredible and we were extremely proud to have them representing the salon.
From over 1000 initial entries, down to 540 regional finalists, and now just 36 Grand Finalists, the next step for our winning team (consisting of technician Fiona Baxendale and stylist Mai Hai) 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.
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!
