Anthony Bayer from Anthony Bayer Hair was named New Zealand Colour Artist, while New Zealand Creative Artist went to Kylie Hayes from Moha Hairdressing at the 2019 Wella TrendVision National Awards held in Sydney on January 19, 2020.
More than 300 hairdressers and industry experts gathered in The Venue, Alexandria for the awards.
Daniel Reynold from BIBA Salons won Australian Colour Artist and Jude McEwen from TONI&GUY Perth Central took out the title for Australian Creative Artist.
Finalists from Australia and New Zealand were required to recreate their submitted looks during a live competition in front of a panel of expert judges.
Hosted by Wella education & digital leader Tracey Hughes and Lee Cohen, guests were treated to a colour-infused trends showcase presented by the Wella Professionals Education Team.
Hughes says she was extremely proud to kick off the year with such an impactful event, which dove into the world of Wella colour.
“The standard of work from all the Trend Vision finalists was incredible and we are super excited for the winners to represent ANZ in Spain. The energy on the night was electrifying and the Wella Education Team inspired our attendees with a dazzling trend release show,” she said.
The Australian and New Zealand winners will go on to compete in the International TrendVision competition in Seville, Spain in March.
In response to the devastating bushfires that have ravaged the country, Wella Professionals donated 100 per cent of the profit raised through tickets sales to support relief efforts.
Congratulations and good luck in the next phase to the winners, listed below.
