Four more finalists are unveiled at the North Western heat of L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2019

LCT19 Liverpool Regional Semi Final
The L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2019 Regional Semi Finals made their way to Liverpool for the North West heat last night (April 2).

Hundreds of talented hairdressers descended on trendy warehouse venue Camp and Furnace in the city centre to demonstrate their styling skills in an effort to win a place at the June LCT19 Grand Final.

The judging panel, including Skyler Hanna, Jason Miller and Errol Douglas MBE, carefully assessed the entries and selected the following salons to progress to the next stage:

L’Oréal Colour Trophy
The Colour Room, Stockport
Christopher Bennett Hair, Fleetwood

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award
Francesco Group Shewsbury

L’Oréal Colour Trophy STAR Award Regional Winner
Katie Griggs, Francesco Group Eccleshall

Named ‘Best in Region’ for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award and the L’Oréal Men’s Image Award, and now added to the pool for the Shortlisted Judging Stage:

L’Oréal Colour Trophy
Francesco Group Eccleshall
Francesco Group Stafford Salon and Academy
Saks Lytham
Reuben Wood Hair and Beauty, Manchester

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award
Reuben Wood, Manchester
Trevor Sorbie, Manchester

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 stop for the regional semi-finals is Cheltenham Race Course, where salons will compete in the Western leg of the competition on Sunday night (April 7). Good luck to all those taking part, and we’ll bring you news of the next batch of salons who’ll be joining us in London in June first thing on Monday!
