L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final 2017

A night of incredible innovation, exceptional talent and dazzling style: It could only be the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final. Vogue Williams presided over a fabulous evening in O’Reilly Hall, UCD, Dublin, beginning with a Champagne reception followed by a live award shows and topped off with an after-party at Dublin hotspot, House.

The judging panel of Siobhan Jones (Headmasters), Nathan Walker (Trevor Sorbie), Alan Edwards (Alan Edwards), Guy Kremer (Guy Kremer) and Chris Williams (Rush) certainly had their work cut out for them. They deemed Peter Mark Dundrum Town Centre the winner of the top prize, with Conor Doyle (colourist) and Grace Murphy (stylist) producing the lauded look on model Sadhbh Maguire. Read their inspiration behind the style on page 21. Next stop for the team is the L’Oréal Professionnel Business Forum in Seville, where last year’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy winners from Dylan Bradshaw, Aoife Bradley and Jenny Dawson, took home gold.

The L’Oréal Men’s Image Award was won by Lee Stinton (stylist) and Gerard McLoughlin (colourist) from Preen, Dublin and the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Star Award went to Lisa Roe of The.Space, Dublin. Irish salons Davey Davey, Black Amber, Darcy’s Hair Salon and The Edge Hair Design, (Colour Collective Team), directed by Ian Brady of Cats, opened the evening with a riot of styles and shades in their sumptuous show, Expression of Colour and we are now craving a scarlet afro. A black-tie gala dinner was followed by Downtown; a body-popping, beat-boxing extravaganza by the award-winning London-based Percy & Reed Artistic Team that had everyone on their feet. As always, it was a night not to be missed.
