The 2018 Haute Coiffure Française (HCF) was held at the Pavillion Baltard in Nogent-sur-Marne on February 11, 2018.
In partnership with L’Oréal Professionnel, HCF included more than 800 participants from 42 different countries, all gathered for an evening of inspiration, which showcased HCF’s spring/summer collection “Capsule V,” featuring a range of vintage-inspired looks from the 1960s, created by HCF’s creative team which included Sophie Bauçais, Christophe Gaillet, Laurent Decreton, Jeremy Blanc and Philippe Laurent.
The night also included the 10th annual HCF Trophy finale, in which 10 finalists from six different countries, accompanied by their models, participated in the final round of the 2018 HCF International Trophy.
Francis L. Rhod, president of the French Haute Coiffure Française, kicked off the night with Mario Lopes, president of jury, who welcomed the finalists on stage to bring their creative visions to life.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 HCF International Trophy!
