Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2019 UK Regional Winners announced

May 23, 2019

The Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2019 UK Regional Winners have been announced at the recent #WellaCreativeRemix featuring Regional Heats that took place around the country in Glasgow, Manchester, London and Nottingham.

The event had a fresh new format this year, and included a model showcase, inspirational catwalk shows from HOB Academy Art Team, D&J Ambrose Art Team and local artists: DNA Art Space, KH Hair, Medusa, P.Kai Hair. Each #WellaCreativeRemix event featured a live DJ set, creative demonstration zones, competitor gallery and Robert Eaton’s wig installation – all with a relaxed and informal vibe.

A beautiful tribute was also paid to Sean Nolan from HOB Salons, who had been an integral part of the #WellaCreativeRemix tour and passed away suddenly whilst on the tour. “Sean was incredibly talented and loved being part of TrendVision. We have lost someone very special and we shall all miss him terribly,” said HOB Salons co-director, Akin Konizi.

Later in the evening the finalists had the opportunity to present their models, and the winners from the 4 categories were crowned. A total of 40 UK finalists will now go on to compete at the TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final, held on 30th September 2019 at The Roundhouse, Camden, London.

The winners of the two international categories (Colour Artist of the Year and Creative Artist of the Year) will then go on to the International TrendVision Award Creative Retreat, taking place in Seville, Spain. In addition, the gold winners of the Male Grooming and Runway categories will be in with a chance of also joining the Creative Retreat, with ten winners chosen globally to attend. All winners will now experience exclusive mentoring with some of Wella’s leading hairdressing icons to help prepare them for the UK & Ireland final.

The UK & Ireland final will attract the best of British hairdressing. The star-studded event with cocktail reception and dinner will feature incredible hair shows from some of the worlds most talented hair artists.
