Congratulations to the next finalists in the 2020 L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy competition, who were named in Sydney over the weekend in the third iteration of the brand’s national tour. Taking place in Pyrmont, Sydney, at the Darlinghurst Theatre, semi-finalists created their looks for a live runway show to decide who would go into the grand finale in Melbourne on September 14.

The Colour Trophy and Rising Star finalist decided were Julia Tsujeva of Alana Kristian Salon for an alluring pink hair look, Jessica Schofield of Cataldos Salon for an auburn pixie cut, Jordan Hone of Sloans North Sydney for a tousled brunette short hair look and rising star Meghan King of Sloans for a multi-tonal pink hair look with dark roots.

These finalists join the other finalists decided so far. In Perth, Ben Semple of Circles of Subiaco was named a Colour Trophy finalist for a multi-tonal brunette afro look, while Alexia Mirabile of Hairloom Osbourne Park joined him with a curly short bob look in delicate brunette and auburn, and Drew Boundy and Kerina Marlow rounded out the group from Hemisphere Hair, winning for their trending peach waves. Caitlan Roze of Circles of Fitzgerald was the Rising Star nominee for her orange haired look.

In South Australia and Tasmania, Joe Cotroneo of Zink Hair was awarded for a multi-dimensional pink bob, Massimo Tirimacco of Zohair – also last year’s esteemed winner – won for a textured golden blonde bob that’s both editorial and wearable and Fiona Fazzalari of Hair Machine Glenelg, became a finalist for a voluminous bob with hiding strands of bright colour. Madeleine Dicerbo of Zohair is the rising star national finalist, awarded for her fiery red long hair look.

The national tour marches on, Queensland will take place tonight on February 18 and Victoria will take it into March on March 2 in Melbourne, deciding the final finalists battling for the ultimate crown. Who will emerge victorious?
