Color Zoom finalists announced

Natasha Goldwell

Have you seen the amazing looks created by Goldwell’s Color Zoom UK finalists? The challenge for this year’s competition is to interpret the vibe, style and colour of the brand’s gorgeous global collection: Elemental. There are three categories; New Talent, Creative Colourist, and Partner Colourist. The guys who know their stuff; industry experts and press members gave the final verdicts on the looks.

The theme of Elemental focuses on mixing technology and creativity, with mineral inspired colour and raw, handmade textures in the shape, outline and interior of the hair styles. Color Zoom contenders were encouraged to play around with rawness and refinement. This resulted in some jaw-dropping looks, trust us! Read on for a full list of finalists from the Color Zoom UK 2018 categories.
