A Night of Glitz and Glamour at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final

Friday, 08 June 2018 14:07

Battersea Evolution in London was the venue for this year's L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final, which saw 1,000 guests unite to enjoy one of the UK's most glamorous hair events.

The L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2018 - the hair industry's longest running and highly renowned hair accolade - was lifted this year by the team from Trevor Sorbie Salon (bottom left), followed by Charlie Miller in second place and Jamie Stevens taking third.

The much acclaimed Men’s Image Award was won by The Boutique Atelier, while the runner up in the men's category was Atchison Hair. The evening of the Grand Final is also the occasion for celebrating the winners of The L'Oréal Colour Trophy Regional Awards, (see below) which this year were presented to all eight regions by Dylan Bradshaw, from Dylan Bradshaw Ireland and Siobhan Jones from Headmasters, both of whom emphasised how high the standard of hair work was and subsequently how difficult the judging process had been.

The L'Oréal Professional STAR Award is a special accolade which goes to the judges' favourite. The winner for 2018 was Taylor Clayton Spicer from Paul Edmonds, London, who wins a place on an exclusive winner’s photoshoot in Paris. The other highly significant presentation is to the winner of The Afro Look Award. Presented by Junior Green, the title this year went to Rick Roberts, Beverley. Our congratulations go to all this year's finalists and winners.

The Grand Final Show this year was entitled '21st Century Image’ and portrayed how beauty is captured and reproduced within today's ever-changing media driven world. Percy and Reed (top left) opened the show with ‘The Moving Image’ Dark l Light, followed by ‘The Instant Image’ by Ken Picton Salon (top middle) . Brooks & Brooks (top right) finished the show with ‘The Editorial Image’ which captured the artistry of the finished look through the traditional lens.
