This hair competition remains true to its philosophy: to support hairstylist as an artist and offer all hairdressers an opportunity to make their most creative work visible.
The show started with the performance of The Style Master 2014 International Contest Winner and the nine 2015 Finalists. They all entertained the audience with spectacular works reproducing one of the 3 styles presented in the contest. What followed was Miquel Garcia’s presentation of the 360º Premium Education Method, a way to educate customers with Revlon Professional’s own cutting and coloring techniques.
Revlon Professional Bellissima Collection was fresh and inspiring, perfect for this Spring-Summer season. Coming up next was the American Crew ‘Mobster’, ‘MMA Fighters’, ‘Wall Street’ and ‘Mods and Rockers’ collections. Four very attractive segments that delighted the audience. Orofluido Asia came after that and the stage became an Asian décor with dragons, Japanese drums and models with Asian styles. Revlon Professional’s Fall in Love Collection closed the show representing an English countryside full of English traditions. A preview of next fall hair fashion!
After that, the Global Winner of the American Crew All Star Challenge Competition was announced: of all fifteen international candidates chosen to be in the final, Sergey Shapochka –from Kiev, Ukraine–, won the annual global competition that recognizes the best men’s hair stylists in the world.
David Raccuglia, founder of American Crew, handed him the award just before disclosing The Style Master 2015 International Contest winners.
The media attending the show was able to meet all finalists and winners at backstage and celebrate their success. A friendly party was the end of the gala and everybody was happy to share such an extraordinary event with colleagues from over 60 countries!
