The Goldwell® Hair Color team is thrilled to announce the 2014 Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Semi-Finalists. Scores of applicants nationwide entered to be crowned this year’s Color Zoom Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist, and Global Partnership Colorist winners. Contestants were challenged to bring their creativity to life, interpreting this year’s Reallusion trend and color collection, where reality meets illusion with unexpected color combinations and captivating hidden details.


Tasked to create looks that turn convention upside down and offer a fresh point of view, contestants were judged by an esteemed panel of experts composed of: Goldwell Hair Care Vice President of Education Sandra Humphries, Editor in Chief of American Salon Magazine Kelley Donahue, Goldwell Artistic Team, Director and Global Master Dimitrios Tsioumas, Beauty and Fashion Director at Modern Salon Maggie Mulhern, and Co-founder of Hairbrained, Randy Taylor. This prestigious panel curated this year’s roster of talented semi-finalists and ultimately selected five standout colorists in each category.


Following this round, there will be named a 2014 Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Gold, Silver and Bronze winner in each of the three categories. The Gold winners from each category will be invited to participate in the thrilling Color Zoom 2014 International Competition. This exciting live competition will take place in Berlin in October 2014, allowing national finalists from around the world to showcase their talent. Judges will decide which colorists will earn the titles of Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medal Winners in the coveted Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist or Global Partner Colorist categories. Please join us in congratulating this year’s talented 2014 Color Zoom Challenge U.S. Semi-Finalists!
