Following a huge amount of entries this year from across the globe, Fudge Professional is pleased to announce the winner of its Mixology Master 2017 competition as Maria Ragberg from Uniklipp AS salon in Norway.

As the Fudge Professional Mixology Master 2017, Maria will be flown to Milan to assist on the photo shoot for Fudge Professional’s 2018 colour collection, with global hairdressing legends X-presion creative team and Fudge Professional Global Head of Technical Education, Tracy Hayes.

Wow, this is crazy. Thank you so much for selecting my image. I feel so honoured to win something big like this by just doing what sets my heart and soul on fire. I want to say a huge thank you to Fudge Professional for making it possible for colourists to play and share their work worldwide like this. I can’t wait for Milan! - Maria Ragberg

Tracy Hayes, Global Head of Technical Education, adds,

Here at Fudge Professional we love risk-takers and colourists who aren’t afraid to push the boundaries. This entry really stood out as being a fresh new colour to add to the Fudge Professional colour palette: vibrant, young and unexpected. The judges commented how they loved that the technique wasn’t obvious but featured gentle, hidden tonal colours appearing in the movement of the hair. It’s very fudge!
