When it comes to creating exceptional hair colour and the hottest catwalk looks, a team of hairdressers from Rogue Hair in Belfast
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.
Karen Devlin and Jody Devlin from Rogue beat off stiff competition from thirty-nine salons across Northern Ireland 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 Northern Irish final their live hairdressing skills were put under the spotlight by a panel of top hairdresser judges including
Terry Calvert, Zoë Irwin, Nathan Walker and Jamie Brooks. “The standard was incredibly high and it was really good to see competitors
thinking about the total look,” explained Terry Calvert.
The whole room was on tenterhooks waiting to hear who had made it through to the Grand Final and upon hearing their name announced,
the Rogue team leapt off their chairs in delight. They will now go on to London compete amongst forty-five regional finalists from
across the UK at a star-studded live catwalk show, to be held at Earl’s Court.
“It’s great when your team’s talent and creativity is recognised in this way,” explained Karen Devlin, salon owner.
“We are delighted to be going through to the Grand Final.”
