Wella Professionals Announces XPOSURE Winners

Monday, 01 June 2020 14:57

The winners of the Wella Professionals is delighted to announces the winners of XPOSURE - it's competition aimed at hairdressing students based in the UK and Ireland with less than 5 years' experience who are training at college or a private training academy.

Due to the current challenging circumstances, the competition has been adapted to a digital format this year, starting with hundreds of online photographic entries which showcased the competitors’ hairdressing skills across the two categories: Creative Colour and Colour the Cut. Those that made it through to the Regional Heat stage, were then asked to make an online submission. This replaced the competition’s traditional ‘live’ regional heats and involved making a short video talking about their entry, as well as a written document explaining how the look was created, and drawings demonstrating the technique they created. 

“We have had a record number of entries this year, which under the current circumstances, is incredible," commented Allie Hargreaves, National Education Operations and Events Manager UK & Ireland. "The standard throughout has been incredibly impressive. British hairdressing is clearly in safe hands if this entry level standard is anything to go by. Congratulations to all the winners,” said Allie Hargreaves, National Education Operations and Events Manager UK & Ireland.  

The stellar line up of judges included industry leaders Darren Lacken, Sarah Mason, Charlie Taylor, Colin McAndrew, Jayson Gray, Kai Wan, Rudi Rizzo, Gustav Fouche and XPOSURE Gold Winner 2018, Lizzie Williams.

For both Creative Colour and Colour the Cut categories, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners have been crowned, with three runners up for each of the five regions. In addition, 30 Certificates of Merit have been awarded. A Certificate of Merit is for the competitors who would have been Regional & Ireland Heat winners and who would have competed in the UK & Ireland Final, if it wasn’t for the coronavirus outbreak. 

An array of incredible prizes were awarded to Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, including a Wella Professionals XPOSURE Trophy, an exclusive experience at the TrendVision Award 2020 UK & Ireland Final, bespoke education development programmes and hairdressing tool kits.   

A special prize went to Moray College UHI, who had the highest number of entries and won a free education session with a Guest Artist.
