L’Oréal Professionnel Style & Colour Trophy has returned for 2022, going live as of April 20 to June 30 to uncover the next wave of exceptional hairdressing talent. Heralded as the longest running hairdressing competition, and a beloved and iconic international platform, Style & Colour Trophy is the ideal opportunity to catapult your career.
The 2022 theme of the competition is titled FRENCH EDITO, through which applicants create a premium magazine cover image that celebrates and innovates the latest style and colour trends.
“Realise a perfect French Balayage or French Glossing service and propose the best styling that complements your colour work,” the brief reads.
Applicants must create and submit a grid of six untouched images of the same model, including one before and after split screen image. The grid is comprised of three images of a finished look from different angles – front, side and back -, as well as two images showing the technique process, one of which can be a video, and the before and after comparison, with the model in the same position.
Each image must include a short description detailing the colour technique used between French Balayage or French Glossing and the look created. Entries are submitted via the L’Oréal Professionnel Style & Colour Trophy website 2022 and on Instagram via the hashtag #SCTrophy.
Australia has big shoes to fill in 2022, with a wealth of success in the competition in recent years. In 2021, Australia’s own Massimo Tirimacco of Zohair Salon in South Australia won the international title, and the 2019 title was awarded to Wendy Gunn from Ink for Hair in Brisbane, meaning Australia has the last two consecutive global titles under our belts.
“If you want to step out of your salon and comfort zone to elevate your career, L’Oréal Professionnel Style & Colour Trophy is the way to go,” Massimo said. “I have been competing since I was 17 and every time I compete, it has continued to help me grow. To be immersed working with so many creatives within the industry, the opportunities are endless. The exposure to the salon and your own work is far beyond what you can imagine. My method has been to have a clear vision, find an amazing model that suits your vision, create the vision, find the right team. Create the trend, not follow one!”
With those inspiring words it’s ready, set, go! Good luck!
