Meet your Western L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2019 ‘Best in Region’ winners…

by | 8 Apr 2019

The final run of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2019 Semi Final events kicked off in Cheltenham last night (April 7), with the selection of the Western region Grand Finalists and ‘Best in Region’ salon teams.

Competitors gathered at the city’s race course venue, where they styled and preened their hearts out with the hopes of landing one of the four confirmed places at the contest’s finale.

The judges poring over the models on the night included Andrew Mulvenna, Abigail Butler and Guy Kremer, and the lucky entrants they selected were:

L’Oréal Colour Trophy
Nashwhite, Warwick
Bloggs Salons Gloucester Road, Bristol

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award
Laura Leigh Hair and Beauty, Cheltenham

L’Oréal Colour Trophy STAR Award Regional Winner
Edward Leroy Parker, Stuart Holmes Salon, Cheltenham

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
Laura Leigh Hair and Beauty, Cheltenham
Hair by Jones (Team 2), Monmouth
Studio.B, Bridgwater
Bloggs Salons Harbourside (Team 1), Bristol

L’Oréal Colour Trophy Men’s Image Award

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 penultimate – stop on the Semi Final tour is Cambridge’s Imperial War Museum, where salons will compete in the Eastern leg of the competition tonight (April 8). Good luck to all those taking part, and we’ll bring you news of the next batch of finalists first thing tomorrow.
