The 49th L'Oréal Colour Trophy competition took place on Monday 22nd June, making it the longest running live hairdressing competition in the world. This year played host to some of the highest profile names in the hairdressing industry resulting in a competitive night of fashion, styling and beauty.
The theme of the show took inspiration from the harshness of war, versus the beauty of fashion, through hair and makeup. Fashion Riot was stunningly crafted with art direction and dynamic lighting design that left the audience captivated.
Huge congratulations to Sugar Culture, who were the Grand Final Winners. The team was made up of Elaine Archbold the Stylist , Aimee Penco on Colour and Cara Macken on Make-up.
Second Place went to Peter Mark, Cornlescourt and Runner-up was Origin Hair Academy, Cork City.

The colour was inspired by black orchard berries with lots of lavenders, mauves and raspberry tones, the cut was inspired by Louise Brookes 1920's style bob which was combined with Vivenne Westwood inspired clothes and 1990's Girl duo 'Shakespeare's Sister'
inspired the make-up.
