True Hollywood glitz and glam were in the air as Color Zoom 2013 kicked off in high style at the Nokia Theatre (yes, THE home of the Grammy’s, Emmy’s and the American Music Awards) on October 5th to welcome over 3,000 stylists and media from around the world.
Then, Sunday morning it was time for competitors to focus on inspiration and impeccable technique as 70 national finalists from 28 countries competed live and simultaneously in three categories: Partner, New Talent and Creative. Canada’s own Jordi Schonwetter brought home the silver award in the New Talent category, while US stylist Derrick Zeno won the coveted gold prize in the Partner category.
John Moroney, Kao’s vice president of global salon, introduced the Reallusion Color Zoom 2014 theme created by the Goldwell Master Team, which includes Canadian Colour Master Colourist Timothy Switzer. This new theme is all about perception. What is real? Where is the illusion? Global Goldwell stylists no doubt will have fun competing for next year’s awards.
