Goldwell Announces 2015 U.S. Color Zoom Semi-Finalists
Goldwell’s Color Zoom is one of the most prestigious haircolor competitions in the industry. Each year, hundreds of talented colorists enter, but only 15 are chosen as semi-finalists. This week, a prestigious panel of industry experts including, Vice President of Education, Salon, for Kao USA Inc. Sandra Humphries, top stylist and owner of Arrojo Studio, Nick Arrojo, celebrity colorist Guy Tang and BTC’s very own Jackie Summers, selected the U.S. semi-finalists who will compete in the three categories: Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist and Global Partner Colorist. Out of these select fifteen, three deserving finalists in each category have been chosen.
The semi-finalists were asked to create unexpected elegance with fashion inspired looks that blend harmony with disharmony. Following this round, a 2015 Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Gold, Silver and Bronze winner in each of the three categories will be named by the Goldwell Hair Color Global judges’ panel in Darmstadt, Germany. The Gold winners from each category will be invited to participate in the Color Zoom 2015 International Competition. This exciting live competition will take place at Global Zoom in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 4th, 2015, allowing finalists from around the world to showcase their talent. Judges will then decide which colorists will earn the titles of Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medal Winners in the Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist or Global Partner Colorist categories.
The Gold Medal Winners will get the coveted role in helping create the next fashion forward Color Zoom color collection. Congratulations to this year’s talented 2015 Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Semi-Finalists!
