Celebrating professional hair, colour and fashion, this is your opportunity to reveal your creative talents to the nation… and the world.
Following the success of this year’s offering, L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy returns in 2019, with online submissions opening June 1st, 2018.
One of the industry’s longest running hair competitions, L’Oréal Colour Trophy continues to platform the best in hairdressing talent, honouring exceptional artistry, skill and creative vision industrywide.
After a seven year hiatus, the brand’s Australian competition leg made it’s triumphant return in 2018, with a series of five state semis culminating in one national finale on February 4th.
Held inside Melbourne’s iconic Crown Casino, Colour Trophy’s uber-glamourous finale brought together the industry’s elite for an evening of musical performances, live hair demonstrations and the revelation of this year’s talented winners.

Ink for Hair’s Wendy Gunn (Colour Trophy’s national title winner for 2018) will join her global counterparts at the International L’Oréal Colour Trophy awards to be held in Paris, early 2019.
As Wendy prepares for her international sojourn, a new pool of entrants will commence preparations for Colour Trophy 2019, with entries officially opening in June of this year.
Round One of proceedings will see participants first submit their photographic interpretations of this season’s colour trends, before which each of their entries will be judged digitally.
All entries will be categorised into five state-specific regions (New South Wales & Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, South Australia & Tasmania, Western Australia & Northern Territory and Queensland). Judges will consider the best overall look (colour, cut, style, make-up, fashion and photography), with hair of course taking focus.
Entrants who pass through to Round Two will be tasked with recreating their looks in front of a panel of esteemed judges and subsequently showcasing their finished looks live at their respective state finals.
Finalists will next be invited to recreate their looks at the competition’s LIVE Grand Finale show, scheduled for February 25th 2019.
Set to be one of the most glamorous events of the industry calendar, next year’s Grand Finale will once again welcome a host of name guests, stylists and finalists to Melbourne for an unmissable evening of celebrations.
