Finalists based their looks on the Color Zoom 2017 trend IN-FLUX, and Goldwell ambassadors Mark Leeson and Neil Barton also wowed the crowd with stunning hair shows illustrating the trends iridescent power. Leeson opened the event with an incredible display of veiled hues and colour melts, before later returning to discuss his new project, the Mark Leeson Art Squad inspired by Goldwell. He has been mentoring the team and will work with them on a photoshoot in September too.

Another Goldwell legend celebrated on stage was Beverly C, who had enjoyed a mentoring role for an all-female group of stylists, a four-day programme that saw the team shooting images for the Color Zoom UK Final.

Neil Barton, a previous Global Color Zoom winner, also presented a breathtaking show with an athleisure vibe and neon inner eye accents to contrast the petrol tones weaved throughout the models’ hair.

Then it was back to hosts Mark Giannandrea (general manager of KAO Salon Division UK) and Irene Meikle (Goldwell’s head of education) to reveal the night’s winners, ahead of a Barcelona-themed after party in the depths of Tobacco Dock.
