Daniel Reynold from BIBA Salons has been named the Wella TrendVision 2019 Australian Colour Artist and Jude McEwen from TONI&GUY Perth Central took out the title for Australian Creative Artist. Over 300 hairdressers and industry experts gathered in The Venue, Alexandria for the awards on Sunday night.
Finalists from Australia and New Zealand were required to recreate their submitted looks during a live competition in front of a panel of expert judges. New Zealand Colour Artist was awarded to Anthony Bayer from Anthony Bayer Hair, and New Zealand Creative Artist went to Kylie Hayes from Moha Hairdressing.
Hosted by Wella Education & Digital Leader Tracey Hughes and Lee Cohen, guests were treated to a colour-infused trends showcase presented by the Wella Professionals Education Team.
Tracey was extremely proud to kick off the year with such an impactful event, which dove into the world of Wella colour.
“The standard of work from all the Trend Vision finalists was incredible and we are super excited for the winners to represent ANZ in Spain. The energy on the night was electrifying and the Wella Education Team inspired our attendees with a dazzling trend release show,” she said.
The Australian and New Zealand winners will go onto compete in the International TrendVision competition in Seville, Spain in March.
In response to the devastating bushfires that have ravished the country, Wella Professionals donated 100 per cent of the profit raised through tickets sales to support relief efforts.
