CELEBRATING 2018

On Monday 14th January we invited the whole salon group to Ashbourne for our annual meeting and awards presentation.

We kicked off with an incredibly motivational session with Paul Fishwick, Commercial Development Manager at L’Oreal Professionnel, who inspired us with a workshop on customer excellence and the five star experience. We moved on to a presentation by Sally who reviewed everything that our business and team had achieved in 2018 while looking ahead to what is in store for the next year.

Next, the awards presentations highlighted the team members who had excelled in 2018. Competition is very tough and we only have eight categories so all of the winners and nominees should be incredibly proud. Congratulations to the entire team for making 2018 so fantastic!

THE L’OREAL COLOUR TROPHY 2018

Three teams from our salons have made it through the first round and into the semi-finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2018. This means that they will now go head to head with salons at the North West Regional Semi-Final event on Monday 16th of April in Liverpool. The teams include stylists from the salons in Belper, The Old Hall (St Peters Churchyard) and Ashbourne who all took part in a photoshoot to create their entry images.

During the first round, hundreds of photographic images from across the country were judged by the most influential names in hairdressing, including Angel Montague-Sayers who is also judging the South West and Northern Irish heats. The salon group fought off stiff competition and were successfully chosen to go through to the next round of the competition – the Regional Semi- Finals.

Stylist: Drew Colourist: Millie

The next stage of the competition will put the team through their paces as they now look to create a truly inspirational, contemporary colour, complemented by trend-driven styling and finish. The team of judges will be looking for work that is exceptionally executed and technically precise.

Stylist: Emily

“We were delighted to have all three of our entries selected by the judges and we now have a team competing in each of the categories at the regional final. We enter the L’Oreal Colour Trophy every year to ensure that the techniques we use in salon are at the forefront of British hairdressing and it’s great fun for all the team involved. We’re looking forward to the next stage and are taking a bus full of our apprentices and younger stylists with us to cheer on the teams taking part.” Sally Montague

Stylist: Lorna

At each Regional Semi-Final six successful teams will be announced and they will go forward to compete at the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final in London this June.
