… and the winners are announced! The 2017 edition of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy has brought in a new name: Linton & Mac have scooped the top prize with their quirky, dark graphic cut and colour… we love its individuality. Bravo to the two ladies from Scotland. And a big hand for the runner up, London regional winner Grace Dalgleish at Brooks&Brooks who impressed with a sublime take on long, lustrous pink and lavender shades. Men’s Image award went to Ky Wilson at The Social for a bang-on-trend textured look – nice indeed – with Harriet Stokes at Not Another Salon taking the Star award (for aspiring colourists) and Nashwhite collecting the Afro Look award.
On from the competition, the evening’s shows were a treat we adored. We’ve seen many LCT presentations and this year’s opening show, Expression of Colour Collective – bringing together six of the most talented female colourists in the UK – was a stunner. To win our hearts further, the Toni&Guy International Artistic Team blew us away with ‘Elements’ – a display of avantgarde styling prowess and stage presence that reminds us how Sacha Mascolo, Indira Schauwecker, and Cos Sakkas still head up a creative team of phenomenal taste and talent. What at night #tributeloves
