Developed by Wella Professionals Creative Directors Josh Woods and Eugene Souleiman, Wella Trend Vision’s 2010 categories set a new benchmark for Australian hairdressers to meet – resulting in a row of talent fit to mark Australia a stand-out at the Paris world finals in September.
Testament to Wella’s acute forecasting skills, each theme proved as popular as the next this year with the national finalist mix containing a rich representation of each ‘vision.’
Nomad Couture invited technicians to catch the travel bug with a worldly inspired palette popping with neon tones, whilst Techno Poetry called the modern-day Alice forward to experiment with soft blondes and shimmering pastels in a theme bringing fantasy into reality.
Nature’s Goddess asked colourists to orchestrate the cohesion of soft salmon and hot corals with aquamarine and luscious beige brown – the perfect contrast to Midnight Stage; a category intriguing technicians to explore the shifting persona of colour through the dramatic placement of indigo, cobalt and jet black.
Announced at prestigious events around the nation, the following Australian colourists and their assistants stepped up as finalists of Wella Trend Vision 2010:
NSW: Bianca-Lee Tinson, Pandora’s Hair Witchery
