We’re rapt that awards are back with live shows and finals and no less of a standard than before the Pandemic. The L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2022 grand final proved a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the heart with a fantastic display of talent in the finalists line up, and of course in the evening’s shows.
Colour on stage
For this 66th edition of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy, we joined the guests at London’s Battersea Evolution centre. Host DJ and radio presenter Vick Hope presided over a mighty stage.
In the gathering, the most influential colour judges: Sally Brooks, Marcello Moccia from Room97, Karen Dodds from Cutting Room Creative, Errol Douglas MBE, Angel Montague-Sayers, Dylan Bradshaw, Charlotte Mensah. Nathan Walker, Siobhan Jones, Jason Miller, Ken Picton and Luke Pluckrose. Phew! no arguing with this lot!
The night belonged to Bloggs Salons, Bristol as they took the number one spot, seizing the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award – the industry’s longest running and most renowned hair award. Andrew Mulvenna, Belfast were awarded second place and Peg Hair, Brighton scooped third place.
Bloggs Salon, Bristol impressively swooped a further two awards, claiming the L’Oréal Colour Specialist Award and the Regional L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award in the Western region, making them the biggest winners of the night.
Other noteworthy wins included Tate Hair, Middlesbrough for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Afro Award and Tribe, London for the L’Oréal Trophy STAR Award.
Shows of colour
Two very special fashion shows were presented to mark the long-standing 20-year relationship between Central Saint Martins and L’Oréal Professionnel Paris. Presented and curated by MA Fashion course director Fabio Piras, the shows exhibited true talent and creativity, whilst providing entertainment for all guests
The first show presented the work of this year’s MA Fashion graduates, with the second showcasing a collection of MA Fashion All Stars. This included designs from Christopher Kane, Simone Rocha, Matty Bovan and Richard Quinn. Alongside this, there was also an incredible surrealist show – Cabinet of Curiosities – from Richard Phillipart and The Boutique Atelier in Ellesmere Port.
Wow! Just wow! Congratulations to everyone – a great night.
