Goldwell’s annual color competition, Color Zoom, brought together stylists from 30 different countries last weekend in London. Canadian national winners Michelle Pargee (Partner category, from Milica SalonSpa, Langley, BC), Michael Shire (Creative category, from Holt Renfrew Salon, Toronto) and Tammy Hanson (New Talent category, from Violet Hair Lounge, Nanaimo, BC) were all on hand to compete live for an audience that included Salon International attendees.
Competitors were chosen based on photographs submitted in their home countries. For the international competition, they had to recreate those styles under a three-hour time limit. Internationally, there were 2,800 entries, 460 semifinalists and 75 national winners.
This year’s winners will form part of the creative team that will put together the trend release for Color Zoom 2014. Next year’s Color Zoom competition will take place in Los Angeles in October.
Congratulations to the winners!
