2016 Goldwell Color Zoom National Finalists Announced

Hairdressers were tasked with ‘disrupting’ in their creative endeavours as part of the 2016 Goldwell Color Zoom competition, and a handful proved better troublemakers than most, being given the coveted Australian finalists spots.

Five Partner Colorists, 10 Creative Colorists and 10 New Talent Colorists are now all in with a chance to win their way to Stockholm, Sweden, for the international event later this year. Judging to decide the national winners will commence on the 4th of July, with national gold, silver and bronze medallists awarded for each category on July 24 at the national awards night in Sydney.

Colourists were made to honour the 2016 D!srupt collection from Goldwell, breaking the creative mould in terms of shape, texture and, of course, colour, and they responded with aplomb. Splashes of colour, choppy layers, undercuts, unique shapes and interesting cuts and styles make up the finalists’ looks.

Don’t take our word for it – check out the finalists, their salons and their victorious looks below, and join us in wishing these rebels our congratulations for breaking the rules in award-winning fashion.
