Promotion – Wella Professionals

Two live virtual events to unveil the finalists, disco-tinged creative inspiration and a cracking new venue for the TVA UK & Ireland Final

64 new TrendVision Award finalists for 2022… hot disco-inspired work from James Earnshaw and Nikki Clifford… and a stunning new venue for the UK & Ireland Final… the TrendVision Award virtual events from Wella delivered all the thrills and more over two nights, showcasing the exceptional colour, cutting and styling work that will compete in the legendary final.

Medusa salon owner and Wella UK & Ireland creative style director, Colin McAndrew, joined TV and radio personality Elspeth Pierce to host proceedings from the Wella Studio London. They shared sneak peeks at the fun and inspiration from Wella education, alongside brilliant tips from competition judges such as HOB Academy’s Akin Konizi and TONI&GUY’s Cos Sakkas, as well as from previous winners like Jake Unger, Gerri Leigh Stobbs and Roisin Hynes.

There were jaw-dropping, Studio-54-meets-modern-disco looks from Wella artists James Earnshaw and Nikki Clifford, putting Koleston Perfect and Shinefinity to gorgeous use for a bold, colourful presentation that meshed holographic shimmer alongside on-trend copper and more.

And, of course, the names of all the finalists for the TrendVision Award categories were unveiled – Editorial Look, Craft Artist, Colour Artist and Colour Specialist. We discovered who would be battling it out for trophies in the student based Xposure Creative Colour and Colour the Cut categories, too.

And perhaps the biggest surprise of the night? The reveal of Magazine London as the exciting new venue for the TVA UK & Ireland Final, set on the banks of the Thames with breathtaking views of London’s skyline. With some of the biggest names in UK and Irish hairdressing attending, guests will be treated to a drinks reception, dinner, exclusive hair shows and the all-important winners reveal… and you know the celebrations will continue on the dance floor into the early hours with a party to remember!

That Final takes place on Monday 3 October and tickets are on sale now – click here to secure your place! Let’s see who’ll be joining you with their eyes on the big prizes…
