Thanks to the fantastic connectivity of the Internet and social media, Wella Professionals is able to announce the winners of the 17th International TrendVision Awards ITVA!
9,000 ENTRIES FROM 39 COUNTRIES
Live competition was not possible this year given the unprecedented pandemic of Covid-19. But we’re delighted to see that Wella has used its considerable online presence and global Instagram account @wellahair to celebrate winners. And here they are for the main two categories: International Color Artist of the Year; and International Creative Artist of the Year. Sylvie Moreau, President Coty Professional Beauty says:. “We felt that celebrating these winners not only was a well-deserved recognition of their talent and potential but that it would bring some positive news in a time when this industry needs to uplift its spirit.”
Winner International Color Artist
Reiner Sauter, Vice President Creative Hair, commented, “The color placement and the subtle differentiations in the color saturation underlines the details of the style. The contrast between the curved line, that perfectly frames the face and the diffused, soft texture towards the tips where the color fades and the texture dissolves, makes this look a masterpiece. Finally, the shade selection fits perfectly to the model’s skin and eye color.”
Winner International Creative Artist of the Year
Sauter commented, “The look from Charles Junior Louw shows strong mastery skills with a true artistic flair. What I personally love about this style, is how even a highly dramatic transformation results in a beautifully crafted look, that shows the model at her best and makes her glow. It takes a real master to compose such a strong look where style, cut and color are working perfectly together.”
