Four more finalists are named at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2019 Eastern Semi

The L’Oréal Colour Trophy regional heats made their way to Cambridge last night (April 8) as competitors from the East of the UK styled up a storm in an effort to secure one of four spots at June’s Grand Final.

Hopefuls flocked to The Imperial War Museum in Duxford, where judges including Alan Edwards, John Spanton and Ky Wilson scrutinised the models and selected the following salons and STARs to progress directly to the last stage of the competition:

L’Oréal Colour Trophy
Renaissance (Team 2), Ipswich
Gregory Dean Hair Salon, Leigh-on-sea

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award
Snip’etts, Ely

L’Oréal Colour Trophy STAR Award Regional Winner
Lois J Negus, Maxwells 

In addition, the following were named ‘Best in Region’ for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award and the L’Oréal Men’s Image Award, and have been added to the pool for the Shortlisted Judging Stage:

L’Oréal Colour Trophy
The Salon Collection, Welwyn Garden City
Snip’etts, Ely
FX Hair Studio, Leigh-on-Sea
Spencer Silver Hair

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award
Malcolm Murphy Hair, Leicester
Cream Hair Associates, Norwich

The Best in Region teams will go through to the Shortlisted Judging Stage, run after the semi-finals. All salons through to the Shortlisted Judging Stage will be judged collectively online after the semi-finals by a panel of judges. The judges will select their top 16 from the 32 in the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Category (and 8 from the top 16 in the Men’s Image Award) regardless of region, and these 16 salons will compete at the Grand Final.

The next – and final – stop on the Semi Final tour is London, where over the next two nights, salons will compete in the Southern and London legs of the competition (April 9 and April 10 respectively). Good luck to all those taking part, and we’ll bring you news of the next batch of finalists first thing tomorrow.
