Welcoming another chance to showcase your talent… The L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2023 is live!
This year, along with the familiar categories, L’Oréal is including an exciting new category, the new L’Oreal Colour Trophy Moving Image Award. This category is open to entrants working in a salon, or as an independent stylist.
Making it accessible to anyone, the competition invites entrants across all categories to create a colour look on any model, of any gender or any gender identity of any hair type. Over the years many thousands of hairdressers have competed and often found this is a great way to raise visibility, accelerate learning, and the chance to really show off skills. Note the Afro Award specialising in a hair type texture between 3C and 4C, and reflective of how despite being 67 years old (true!) the LCT is always evolving and progressive.
Now, with 6 categories* to choose from in the UK and 4 categories to choose from in Ireland, there are great opportunities to spotlight your talent this year.
✓ L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award: A total look award that requires entrants to create a colour look on any model of any gender or gender identity of any hair type.
✓ L’Oréal Colour Trophy STAR Award: For 16-25 year olds, a before and after photo is required to enter and STAR entrants will be interviewed on their work by the judges should they be successful in reaching the Grand Final stage.
✓ L’Oréal Colour Trophy Afro Award (UK only): A total look award that requires entrants to create a colour look on any model of any gender or gender identity of a hair type texture between 3C and 4C.
✓ L’Oréal Colour Specialist Award (UK only): For those hair colour aficionados who have passed the 15-day L’Oréal Colour Specialist Diploma. Entrants must create a colour look on a model of any gender or gender identity of any hair type.
