04 Oct L’Oréal Professionnel Announce 2022 Australian Style & Colour Trophy Winners
Drumroll please! L’Oréal Professionnel gathered the Australian industry at separate state events on Monday August 8, congregating the whole national industry and uniting them via a live video feed from Melbourne to announce and celebrate the winners and medallists in the national Style & Colour Trophy for 2022.
Watching a series of compelling interviews and videos with former competition winners and lauded session stylists, all hosted by brand ambassador Ellie Gonsalves, the events captured the magnitude of the platform, while celebrating each state community in an intimate fashion.
After competing in a series of stages this year, the finalists were assessed for a final time to place as a medallist or win within the significant categories. Congratulations to Claudia Cataldo of Cataldo’s Salon in Canberra, who was honoured for her artistic direction and interpretation of the French Edito theme as the Style & Colour Trophy winner for Australia. If selected and successful on the international stage, Claudia could make it a hattrick of Australian wins after our own Wendy Gunn and Massimo Tirimacco won in the last two global competitions.
Congratulations as well to the medallists – second place went to Karlie Roberts of LNDN Hair, VIC, while third place was Kate Clark of Ink for Hair, QLD. The National Audience Award was given to Kayleigh Guyette and Maria Turner of Zink the Element of Hair, SA. Well done to these talented entrants!
In addition to these awards, L’Oréal Style & Colour Trophy and marie claire presented the People’s Choice Awards, which honoured five recipients across the states, as chosen from five finalists selected by the judges in each region. Well done to NSW/ACT winner Helene Nakat-Badaou of The Hair Room, VIC representative Samantha Andriotis of Elegance Hair, SA/TAS winners Kayleigh Guyette and Maria Turner of Zink the Element of Hair who also won the National Audience Award, QLD winner and bronze medallist Kate Clark of Ink for Hair and WA/NT honourees Rose Cain and Georgia Hale of Head Studio.
The L’Oréal Professionnel Style & Colour Trophy highlights the immense talent in the hair industry on national and then international platforms that celebrate this artistry. Congratulations to the winners and finalists.
