The Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2022 UK & Ireland Final was held this year in its new venue, Magazine London, where the live Final event saw more than 700 guests gather to celebrate the winners for each of the six competition categories.
Hundreds of other also experienced TrendVision Award 2022 online, as the event was streamed for anyone in the world to follow. This year’s final demonstrated the creativity and inspiration of the Wella Professionals colour portfolio perfectly. The whole night was colourful, exciting, bursting with energy and of course packed with incredible hair.
To open the event, the inspirational HOB Academy, which was led by Wella Top Artist Akin Konizi, along with the HOB Creative Team, presented Viper. It included an array of signature looks, with an exotic twist that was inspired by the power of the venomous viper and its intricately patterned skin. The show was edgy, sharp, colourful and captivating. Hair fully embraced the wonders of Wella’s Koleston Perfect and Shinefinity ranges, with strong dynamic looks that were reminiscent of the outstanding quality that HOB Academy is synonymous with.
The Kaleidoscope show was yet another epic moment of the night. Wella Artists Charlie Taylor, Cobella, House of Colour, James Earnshaw, Karbon Kyd, Medusa, Sarah Mason Professional and Stil joined forces to collaborate in this epic hair colour extravaganza. Using Wella’s full colour portfolio including Color Fresh Create, Color Touch, Koleston Perfect, Illumina Color, Blondor and Shinefinity, this demonstrated the incredible versatility of Wella colours. It was diverse, eclectic, and bursting with colour.
To close the event, Wella’s Technical Director, Robert Eaton, presented his Carnival of Colour show. Demonstrating the Wella colour palette to its max and pushing the capabilities of Wella Koleston Perfect and Shinefinity, Carnival of Colour merged bold kaleidoscopic patterns with reflective metallic tones, teamed with show-stopping sequins, accessories galore and textured colourful braids. Everything about this show was bursting with colour and energy, resulting in a truly unique, never seen before, hair show.
