News added 20/10/16: A grand night out indeed as last week we attended the 2016 edition of the Wella TrendVision Award at London’s Roundhouse venue. It’s a cool spot for a live event [only the week before hosting the Apple festival with Britney, Robbie and Calvin et al] and more than 800 guests kept the sound levels up. We watched 50 finalists compete for the TVA UK 2016 titles – bravo to title-takers who now head to Barcelona for the global event. But most intriguing were the shows from HOB Academy (technical wizards, high-octane), Sebastian Professional (strong, stylish, futuristic) and D&J Ambrose… who won our hearts. Their presentation of new collection Vanity was extraordinary – their taste and eye for fashion detail, and referencing of trends in clothing while keeping all eyes on the hair is visionary. We love it.
Congratulations to UK and Ireland winners heading to Barcelona end of November:
UK Color Vision Gold – Hayley Austin at Toni&Guy
UK Creative Vision Gold – Rudi Rizzo at Sanrizz
Ireland Color Vision Gold – Darren Lacken at Crow Street Collective
Ireland Creative Vision Gold – Ciara Brady at Yourells
