The 3rd edition of the Annual Wella Student Competition at America's Beauty Show featured twenty-four talented cosmetology student finalists vying for recognition.

This is one competition that offers beauty school students a platform where they can hone their skills and leave their first small mark on the salon industry. This year broke all records, with nearly 500 students from 37 cosmetology schools in all corners of the USA submitting their entries.

“We are so proud of these incredible students who share Wella’s passion for our profession,” said Fabio Sementilli, Wella Creative & Technical Director. “Wella is committed to supporting stylists throughout every stage of their career. This competition shines the spotlight on student stylists who create beauty and defy convention. This community of young, driven and talented stylists is our Next Generation of Professionals.” added Sementilli.
 
Finalists were selected by a jury of hairdressing VIPs, including Wella Top Stylist Nick Berardi; Team I.C.A.N’s Kathryn Hornick; 2012 International Trend Vision Award Gold Winner and Wella Top Stylist Phillip Ferreira; 2011 North America Trend Vision Award Gold Winner and Wella Top Stylist Shirley Gordon; Wella Global Academy Dean Stephen Moody and Wella Lead Educator Kelly Pennington.
