Emma Ellis and Andrew Young of Jason Hall Hairdressing in Edinburgh have both made it through to the first round and into the semi-finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Awards 2017. This means that they will now go head-to-head with salons at the Scottish Backstage Live Final event on 9th April at Glasgow’s SECC.
In the first round, hundreds of photographic images from across the country were judged by the most influential names in hairdressing including Trevor Sorbie MBE, Jamie Stevens, leading session stylist and press favourite Adam Reed and hairdressing icon Charles Worthington MBE. Jason Hall Hairdressing fought off stiff competition and was successfully chosen to go through to the next round – the Backstage Live Finals.
The next stage of the competition will put the team through their paces, as they create a live model look that demonstrates awareness for Autumn/Winter 2017/18 hair and fashion trends, as outlined in the brief.
We’re really excited to have been chosen to compete at the semi-finals of the competition, and I know that Emma and Andrew will give it their very best! Jason Hall.
From these live events just the top four salons will go forward to compete at the L'Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final to be held on 5th June in London. This stage leaves them just one step away from scooping the unparalleled prize of national media exposure, glamorous fashion shoots and much more!
Competing for the L’Oreal Colour Trophy is Emma Ellis, and for the Men’s Image Award is Andrew Young.
