L’Oréal Professionnel Announce National Colour Trophy Semi Finalists

There’s a long list of talented names that are currently celebrating and preparing for the next illustrious phase of the L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy Awards. The brand announced the list of semi-finalists for the competition on social media, with the list delineated by state and in two categories of Colour Trophy and Rising Star.

The entrants were judged by international stylists (Ken Picton, Shelley Gregory, Jamie and Sally Brooks, Paul Dennison, Jack Howard and Matthew Collins), each surveyed for their exploration of current trends, originality and wearability. Now, there will be a multitude of live semi-final competitions throughout the country, starting with Victoria on October 23rd, then South Australia and Tasmania on October 29th, Western Australia and Northern Territory on October 31st, Queensland on November 6th and New South Wales on November 19th.

The grand finale for all eligible finalists will then take place in Melbourne on February 4th, where the overall winner will progress to the international competition.

Congratulations and good luck to the semi- finalists – you can view the list of names below, and see all entry images here.
