Thursday, 07 June 2018 14:59

The final of Wella Professionals' student competition, XPOSURE, has reached its climax for 2018 and the names of the talented winners have been announced.

XPOSURE is an ideal opportunity for students to take their first steps on the competition ladder and is supported by some of Wella’s leading artists who gave up their time to judge the competition. The judging panel comprised of Kieron Fowles from Regis, Jayson Gray from Karbon Kyd and Patrick Cameron. 

Finalists were required to prepare their model at the studio, before the model line-up and parade in front of the judges. Finalists were supported on the day by an audience of college lecturers and salon managers. 

The 32 finalists and their guests were also treated to hair shows from Francesco Group’s Claire Chell, Amy Soltan and Anya Dellicompagni, as well as two of Wella’s current Generation Now team, Barry Maddocks and Stacie Lee. The Francesco Group presented a truly inspirational show that demonstrated the versatility of Wella’s new colour range, Color Touch Create. The day also included presentations on Wella’s eEducation platform, and an insight into 2018 trends, which proceeded the winners presentation. 

 All Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners have won a tailor-made mentoring day with an inspirational industry icon at the Wella World Studio London, as well as a whole array of many other valuable prizes and developmental experiences. ‘‘We have been incredibly impressed by the standard of entries and it’s great to see so much inspiring new talent coming through,” said Sheila Jackson, Wella’s Director of Education & Events. “This is a wonderful opportunity and congratulations to all the winners,’’ said Sheila Jackson, Wella’s Director of Education & Events”.
