North American TrendVision Finalists Announced!

They put their blood, sweat and tears into creating the most cutting-edge looks they could envision, and now the votes are in. More than 1,200 innovative colorists, ambitious young stylists and aspiring beauty school students rose to the challenge of creating their interpretations of Wella Professionals annual trend collection which focused on Journey of Enlightenment and Uncharted Territories. The talented stylists who will compete in Wella Professionals North American Trend Vision Awards (NATVA) in Las Vegas on July 19 have been selected to compete in one of three categories: StudentYoung Talent or Color. As one of the hairdressing industry’s most prestigious and truly international creative competitions, Wella Professionals annual TrendVision competition offers young stylists and talented colorists a chance to showcase their passion and talent to the world. The Gold winners of NATVA will go on to represent their respective countries at the International Trend Vision Awards (ITVA) in Berlin, Germany on November 22, 2015.

 

During the live competition, 44 finalists from the Unites States and Canada will demonstrate their skill set and instinctive sense of creativity in hopes of being crowned one of hairdressing’s rising stars of the future. Finalists will bring their artistic interpretations to life for a panel of leading beauty industry experts including: Eden Sassoon, Whitney Port and Andy Lecompte. Judges will evaluate each look based on criteria specific to the finalists’ category, including overall look, technique and creative expression. In addition to the live competition and awards, the evening will showcase an inspiring lineup of artistic demonstrations from some of the best hairdressing talent the industry has to offer.
