The 2015 Goldwell Color Zoom Challenge kicks off tomorrow and there’ll be at least one familiar Aussie face representing our national community on the education stage. Aussie hairdressing icon Benni Tognini, the owner and creative director of Brisbane’s Togninis salon, will educate a global audience on cut and colour techniques with a focus on future trends this Sunday.

The big event, taking place this year in Las Vegas, is an international showcase that hosts over 3000 stylists from 54 countries in an intense battle of colouring skills.

Benni will be supported by three stylists from his salon team as well as a fashion stylist from Melbourne and two local models – with the presentation becoming a powerful exhibition of Australian talent.

“The event is always an exceptional opportunity for stylists around the world to present their collection and showcase their skills,” Benni shared. “It’s wonderful to be part of this special achievement for the Color Zoom winners, and it’s an honour for me to present, cut and colour with the team to the thousands of guests. It is exciting to see the hair industry continue to develop and evolve and to be invited to the event is humbling.”
