Wella TrendVision 2017 UK and Ireland Final

IMG_5536 resized 3Tuesday 5 September was a very special night indeed. More than 700 of the hair industry’s finest gathered at the legendary Roundhouse venue in London to learn the winners in this hard-fought competition. This year the event was hosted by lovely TV and radio host Lauren Laverne and legendary industry personality Patrick Cameron.

Before the winners’ announcement, there were three show-stopping catwalk presentations from top art teams. TONI&GUY, Sebastian Professional and Sassoon Academy. All featured ground-breaking hair and fashion. The hauntingly beautiful voice of singer songwriter Charlotte OC provided a superb musical dimension at the Sebastian show.

Then it was time to announce the winners! With two all-new categories for 2017, Men’s Grooming and Runway, the competition was even more varied this year.

The bar was pitched very high indeed with over 60 finalists selected and only 14 awards.

Our congratulations go to all the winners, and particularly to the Gold winners who will go forward to represent their countries at the International TrendVision 2017 Final.

Colour Vision Gold Heather Shaw, Francesco Group Stafford (UK); Stephen Aiken, Conroy Hair (Ireland)

Creative Vision Gold Rita Tuska, Joseph Ferraro Hair (UK); Shauna Forman, House of Colour (Ireland)

Also to the winners of the new categories:

Runway: Bec Armitage, Reuben Wood

The popular People’s Choice awards, voted for by over 16,000 members of the public, went to two Irish entries: STEPHEN AIKEN, CONROY HAIR and VICTOR HUGO PESSOA, THE STUDIO.

It was a truly magical night showcasing the very best hairdressing in the UK and Ireland. The Gold winners will all go forward to represent their countries at the International TrendVision Award 2017 in London on 14 October.
