Rebecca Borzym, Cropped Hair & Beauty

Congratulations are in order… as the crown is set atop the head of 2019’s newly announced Paul Mitchell Color Outside The Lines winner.

The honour going to Rebecca Borzym from Cropped Hair & Beauty Victoria. Rebecca’s stunning The Demi Muted Metallics Rose Gold creation standing out from the crowd and subsequently scoring her the top Australian spot for 2019.

With 600+ Instagram entries in Australia to sift through, the global photographic competition was judged by a stellar panel of national and international judges.

Rebecca’s entry highlighted the competition guidelines that asked entrants to showcase current commercial Australian hair fashion trends using only Paul Mitchell® Professional Hair Color & Paul Mitchell styling products.

“Rebecca’s image was created using our new Paul Mitchell The Demi Muted Metallics demi-permanent colour series and was a striking representation of the diverse and on-trend colour results that The Demi can create,” said Paul Mitchell Managing Director John Pizzey.

To celebrate her win and as part of the grand prize, Rebecca will now travel to LA in early 2020 to participate in a global Paul Mitchell photoshoot. The shoot will see the global winners of Colour Outside the Lines collectively collaborate under the tutelage of Paul Mitchell Creative Director Robert Cromeans.

John continues, “This shoot is the first of its kind for Paul Mitchell, bringing together the winning hairdressers from around the world to share in one vision of creating a globally appealing and on-trend photographic collection profiling the many creative applications of Paul Mitchell Professional Color.

Paul Mitchell is recognised as the world’s largest independently owned hair care brands, and are committed to a culture that celebrates, educates, supports and profiles hairdressers as artists. As a brand we are focused on being a global leader in professional hair colour, and are committed to keeping hair colour in the salon where it belongs.

Color Outside the Line is a competition that celebrates this effort, and the growing popularity of this competition – and number of salons choosing to support Paul Mitchell Professional Color here in Australia speaks – to an industry that’s looking to support brands that remain loyal to our industry – true  professionals.

It is extremely exciting to have a talent like Rebecca involved in this project.”

It would be remiss of us not to mention the talented finalists who narrowly missed out on the top spot. Alongside Rebecca were four finalists honoured for their outstanding work. Congratulations to the talented Color Outside the Lines finalists for 2019:
