The leading Goldwell color experts are thrilled to announce this year’s 2015 Goldwell Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Finalists!
Leading colorists from across the country sent in entries for one of the three Color Zoom Challenge Categories – Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist, and Global Partner Colorist – around the theme of Traditional Rebels, a celebration of stunning color combinations and tribal influences.
In June, applicants were narrowed to just 15 Semi-Finalists by a prestigious panel of industry experts. Following the Semi-Finalist round, the expert Goldwell Hair Color Global judges’ panel have now selected three standout Gold U.S. Finalists, one for each category.
Here’s the newest 2015 U.S. Gold Finalists: Creative Colorist – Harley LoBasso of hair by Scott & Company (Delray Beach, FL); New Talent Colorist – Samantha Conley of Cortello Salon (Jacksonville, FL); and Partner Colorist – Corinne Brown of Salon Circa (Seattle, WA). These three National Gold Finalists will have the honor of competing live on behalf of the United States in the 2015 Color Zoom International Competition. This hands-on color competition will take place at Global Zoom in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 4th, 2015, giving contestants the opportunity to prove their creativity against other finalists from around the world and to earn the ultimate Global title.
