Goldwell’s international beauty event Global Zoom 2015, the mega competition that is taking place at The Cosmopolitan in Vegas, has crowned Harley LoBasso of Hair by Scott & Company (Delray Beach, FL) as Best Creative Colorist & Corinne Brown of Salon Circa (Seattle, WA) as Best Partner Colorist!
The 3rd Gold (Best New Talent) has been grabbed by young stylist Natalie Cara Jones (UK). The worldwide competition gathered more than 2,400 salon professionals from around the world cheering on 72 global finalists. Cory Couts, Global President of KAO Salon Division welcomed the audience before John Moroney, Global Vice President of Education introduced the new Color Zoom 2016 collection, Disrupt, a revolutionary reinvention of modern beauty codes.
The event encompassed creativity, celebration and inspiration with a series of seminars, stunning shows and awesome parties – but the highlight of the weekend was the announcement of the Global Zoom Winners ’15.
