CWGA24: Finalists announced

It’s with immense excitement and anticipation we can uncover who our finalists are for the Colour World Genius Awards 2024 (CWGA24).  This year we introduced the Mindful Colour Genius, where we invited salon owners and manager to share what they’re doing to be more mindful with the way they colour in the salon.

As always, we were overwhelmed with the technical skills of all those who entered. 10 categories were judged by over 35 expert hairdressers and industry professionals.

With thanks to our sponsor Glowwa, we will be celebrating on Sunday 19th May. A drinks reception where bubbles will be flowing, entertainment and of course the announcement you’re all waiting for. You can purchase your ticket to the CWGA24 party HERE
