Entry is now open for the Alter Ego Italy Color & Creative Challenge 2015, writes Chloe Falivene.

Five international finalists will be flown to the Alter Ego International Hair Show in Seville, Spain, in order to showcase their colour and styling skills at the fifth annual instalment of the event.

Each country will select its five best candidates to represent their industry, and these candidates will have the chance to be selected for one of the worldwide finalist spots. Past Australian finalists include Maria Unali from S81.hair salon in Sydney and Amanda Menz from Fruition salon in Brisbane.

We believe these international finalists could come from our very own national crop of talent, and even go on to win the coveted global award – so do you have what it takes to represent Australia?

Entries close at 5 pm on Friday, July 10th, and the final stage will take place on October 18, 2015 in the timeless and beautiful Seville.

And now for the fine print: each participant must be over 26 years old, and be a qualified hairdresser using Alter Ego Italy products and colour.

The category for entrants to address is Color & Creative Challenge: Total Look Woman, and entrants must deliver on a trend concept titled Welcome to the new Alter Ego Italy Era.

Craig Smith, Global Creative Director for Alter Ego, Italy’s leading salon brand, for those who don’t know, will be showcasing his spectacular new Fall/Winter 2015/16 collection at a gala dinner during the event.

Just one of many unforgettable opportunities you could experience in Spain.
