We are so excited to share news from Wella Professionals’ 2017 International TrendVision Awards, where beauty is a force that has been lighting up London with amazing shows, blazing smiles and networking amongst the most creative minds in the Wella global family!
The International Trend Vision Awards (ITVA) is Wella Professionals’ most buzzed about event because of the creativity and level of talent it attracts to wherever the annual extravaganza happens to take place. This year, it took place in the very posh London, UK, where we saw electric hair color, whimsical styling and professionals with invincible competitive spirits! Coinciding with Coty Professional Beauty’s commitment to the liberation and the diversity of beauty with a focus on true authenticity, the ITVA is an expression of true globalization of that diversity, expressed though stunningly creative hair.
The 83 stylists and colourists from 44 countries took to the Salon International stage in London to compete for victory in the Color Vision and Creative Vision categories, inspired by the 2017 Trend Vision beauty trends.
