The cream of the mop from salons all over the country went head to head at this year’s 51st L?Or?al Colour Trophy Grand Final, which took place in the opulent O?Reilly Hall, UCD, Dublin. Hosted by Irish TV Presenter Vogue Williams, guests enjoyed a champagne reception, followed by a black tie gala dinner and live award show, all before a glamorous after-party at Dublin hotspot, House on Leeson Street.

In what was an effulgent parade of talent, finalists were competing across three categories, including the L?Or?al Men’s Image Award, the Star Award and the highly coveted L?Or?al Colour Trophy. The highlight of the evening came from leading Irish salons Davey Davey, Black Amber, Darcy’s Hair Salon and The Edge Hair Design, (Colour Collective Team) directed by Ian Brady of Cats, who joined the award-winning London-based Percy & Reed team to present a series of show-stopping runway displays.

The judging panel at all stages of the competition featured some of the biggest names in the international hairdressing industry with this year’s scintillating final adjudicated by Siobhan Jones (Headmasters), Nathan Walker (Trevor Sorbie), Alan Edwards (Alan Edwards), Guy Kremer (Guy Kremer) and Chris Williams (Rush).

Hosting industry icons and next generation leaders, the L?Or?al Colour Trophy provides stylists and their salons with an unrivalled opportunity to showcase their talents amongst some of the most celebrated names in the business. For the second consecutive year, the overall winner will be given the chance to compete on a global scale at the L?Or?al Professionnel Business Forum in Seville, where last year’s L?Or?al Colour Trophy winners from Dylan Bradshaw, Aoife Bradley and Jenny Dawson, took home gold.
