This year, the L’Oreal Colour Trophy is celebrating its 60th Anniversary, making it the longest running hairdressing competition in the world, and is accepting entries for the coveted title as of today, 5th January 2015.

L’Oreal Professional is calling all UK hairdressers and stylists with a passion for colour, fashion and, of course, hairdressing, to enter via with four categories to choose from: the L’Oreal Colour Trophy, L’Oreal Men’s Image Award, L’Oreal Colour Trophy Young Colourist Award and the Mizani Afro Look Award.

The website holds the full entry dossier and seven simple steps needed to enter. There’s also an inspirational gallery of images and videos showcasing the current winner’s journey to spur salon teams to take part this year. They’ll have to be quick though, as the deadline for entries is Friday 27th February.

The judging panel includes some of the industry’s biggest names, including Brooks & Brooks, Richard Ward and Ken Picton. Salons who have been successful in this initial round will be announced on 6th March and will be invited to attend one of eight regional events around the UK from 12th April.

The Grand Final will take place on 1st June at Battersea Evolution. Winners of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy enjoy invaluable experiences, including a European trip to shoot the winning look and a photo shoot with a leading consumer glossy magazine for 2016, along with all sorts of other PR opportunities.

In honour of reaching this impressive milestone, the 2015 edition is lined up to be one to remember, with a calendar of events acclaiming L’Oreal Professional’s partnership with the best of British hairdressing, so this is a pivotal year to be involved.

Tasha and Megan Stevens, from 2014’s winning London salon, Jamie Stevens, said of the competition: “The L’Oréal Colour Trophy competition is like no other in the industry.  Winning an award at the Colour Trophy demonstrates not only technical skills and a good eye for hair fashion trends, but dedication and excellent teamwork and is a real badge of honour for every winning salon.”
