A retrospective: 5 years of fabulous Most Wanted Colour Expert imagery

What makes a magnificent Most Wanted Colour Expert entry? As judges take on the mammoth task of whittling down all the entries to reveal their finalists for 2018, we look back over previous entries to see how those that came before made it into our hall of fame…

Last year was one of our toughest yet, with Casey Coleman, Craig Clark, John Spanton, Karine Jackson and Sophia Hilton all battling it out. Can you guess who the winner was? It was, of course, Sophia Hilton, from Not Another Salon, who picked up an impressive four awards this year over the Most Wanted and The It List.

Our winner!

The year 2016 saw both John Spanton and Sophia Hilton finalise again, with Katie Allan, Paul Dennison and Robert Eaton also going through, but it was Robert from Russell Eaton that the award finally went to on the Grand Final night.

Our winner!

Katie Mulcahy, from Dale Hairdressing (now Hazel & Haydn), scooped Most Wanted Colour Expert in 2015, beating Abby Smith, Jayson Gray, Siobhan Jones and John Spanton.

In 2014, Mark Leeson, AJ Blackadder, Chris Williams, Jack Howard and Abby Smith were our Colour Expert hopefuls, but the accolade eventually went to Mark Leeson, owner of Mark Leeson Hair Body and Mind…
