Goldwell Announce 2018 AUSNZ Color Zoom Finalists

The 2018 Color Zoom competition is in full force, with a myriad of finalists now in the mix to win the national finals and earn their way to the international competition in Toronto, Canada. The brand has announced its finalists for categories such as Australian Global Partner Colortists, the competition’s major award, as well Global Creative Colorist and Global New Talent for both Australia and New Zealand.

The finalists won among a host of talented entries for creating the ELEMENTAL trend in their own unique ways, harnessing elements of cut, colour, style and texture to develop the aesthetic. The collection fuses modern technology with a more inherent primal creativity. It’s anchored by the interplay of rawness and refinement, the contradiction of solidity and translucency, colour contrasts and modern, minimalistic shapes. Musted pastels, rich earthy tones and matte and unpolished textures alongside shiny hues are incorporated into the aesthetic. A minimalistic approach to shape, sophisticated, precise cuts, soft and jagged edges in equal measure and subtle asymmetry can all be experimented with. Overall, the balance between raw and refined defines the collection and its bold, futuristic look.

These talented finalists now face an anxious wait before they discover the winners and medallists at the national finals announcement in Sydney on July 23. Good luck to all the finalists!
