We are celebrating FIVE TIMES after reaching the national finals of the prestigious International Wella Trend Vision Award.
Two of the finalists went through in the Northern Heats, which were held in Manchester. Style Director Lauren Bickerton and Colour Director Suzi Lawley from HOB Salons, Hale triumphed in the Creative Vision and Colour Vision categories.
At the Southern Heats held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, Sean Nolan, HOB Salons Baker Street is also a finalist in the Colour Vision category and Amelia Evans, HOB Salons Camden and Rushab Shah, HOB Salons Hatch End are both finalists in the Creative Vision category.
Sean and Suzi had to demonstrate a beautiful, colour focused, trend-led look, which is wearable and reflects salon relevant hair, whilst Lauren, Amelia and Rush’s brief was to express creative vision with an on trend cut and finish or hair-up, with an editorial catwalk feel.
All finalists already made it through the first stage, submitting a photo entry of a style they had each created. Having been selected from hundreds of other entries for the regional final, they then had to recreate the style live on stage in front of a panel of judges.
All the competitors will now compete at the UK & Ireland final on Tuesday 5th September 2017 at The Roundhouse, Camden, London. The winners of the two international categories (COLOR VISION and CREATIVE VISION) will then compete at the International Trend Vision Award Final in London in October.
