Over 1000 photographic entries were received for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy and just 400 salon teams make it through to the final events. Back in May a powerhouse team of seven renowned salons went head to head inside the L’Oréal International Academy, London during an intense live final that exploded creative talent in every direction.
Each team had to create a well-executed, inspirational, modern colour showcasing a female look on a model of African/Caribbean descent with technically excellent colour and precision cutting skills. The highly respected judging panel was made up from Craig Chapman from Craig Chapman Hair Design, Michelle Sultan from Hype Coiffure, Kim Johnson from Hype Coiffure, Errol Douglas MBE, Junior Green and Michelle Thompson from The Francesco Group.
Rick Roberts will now embark on an amazing year of promotional, creative and business building activity including a 3 day European trip to shoot their winning look with a professional photographic team, interviews and profiles in the trade press and countless other brand opportunities.
London Masterclass, 20.3.17
The biggest event to round off a very busy, Fellowship-filled day was the London Masterclass held at Opal Bar. Drawing from an abundance of The Fellowship’s finest performers, the place was alive and abuzz.
The stellar line-up represented the diversity and difference of The Fellowship today; Jamie Stevens, Ashleigh Hodges, Dan Spiller for Marc Antoni, Johnny Shanahan for BarberBarber UK, Chris Foster for Foss Academy, Junior Green, Rick Roberts, Jake Ungar for HOB, Errol Douglas MBE, Oon Ng for Sassoon Academy, Sam Burnett for Hare and Bone, Jamie Benny for Rush and of course, special guest Cos Sakkas for Toni&Guy.
Not to mention the fantastic hosts, Karine Jackson and Mark Creed to complete the Fellowship feast!
The venue had an informal club feel, leading to a cool and vibrant atmosphere where hairdressing’s art form was enjoyed by the audience whilst they networked, socialized and connected with one another. The creative pods were crowded by admirers who got close to the action and could interact with the masters whilst they worked.
