L'Oréal Style & Colour Trophy Winners



The L'Oreal Style & Colour Trophy was held this year in a brand new, super-safe, Covid-protocol-friendly format. The inspirational theme, French Balayage, is topical and relevant to salons, and the judging process assessed all aspects of the technical work, the application, the end result, as well as the commercial effect.

The finals were held over two days at the magnificent Raeesa International salon in Parkhurst. Here, competitors from all over the country created their balayage looks on their models, while being assessed every step of the way by a panel of judges and the L'Oréal technical team who were in attendance and also viewing remotely.


The finalists included the following top professionals from around the country. (In these challenging Covid times, not every finalist was able to attend the final event due to various circumstances.)
