When it comes to creating exceptional hair colour and the hottest catwalk looks, a team of hairdressers from Haringtons on Great
Marlborough Street have proved they are among the best in the UK having made it through to the Grand Final of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2007.
Nick Bland and Emma Turner from Haringtons beat off stiff competition from thirty-nine salons across London to clinch their place in
the Grand Final in London on Monday 21 May. They are now one step closer to winning the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy and a
once-in-a-lifetime prize that could see them jetting over to New York to produce a photo spread for fashion bible Vogue.
At the London Regional Final their live hairdressing skills were put under the spotlight by a panel of top hairdresser judges
including Andrew Barton, Guy Kremer, Adam Reed and Alan Edwards. “The London region produced the highest standard of entries I have
seen in the history of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy. Everyone who participated in the competition should feel really proud,” said Andrew Barton.
The team’s had just thirty minutes to create a winning look under the brief ‘hair inspired by fashion’. Using the Autumn/Winter 07
Here Nick and Emma explain the thinking behind their striking image: “With regard to the hair colour, were going with a metallic feel
so there are elements of silver, grey and black. The hairstyle was designed to capture the feel of the sixties and in order to give it a
modern feel, we offset the height of a typical beehive at the side rather than at the crown in a kind of anti-head shape.”
“We didn’t believe it when we were first told,” said Nick. “When it was confirmed we were jumping around the salon in delight. It
really is the most unexpected, amazing news!”
