From countless entries across Australia and New Zealand, 22 finalists have been named for Wella Professional’s National TrendVision Awards.

Delegates for 2019 will go on to compete in the brand’s international TrendVision competition, with each to be honoured at the annual ANZ TrendVision Gala Event in January of 2020.

Participants were first tasked with submitting their photographic entries across the Creative and Color Vision categories , before which looks were scored on palette choice and technique by a panel of industry heavyweights.

Commenting on the 2019 Australian and New Zealand finalists, Wella Professionals Education and Digital Leader, Tracey Hughes shared “The outstanding quality of work entered was inspiring, ensuring our esteemed judges had their work cut out for them determining the finalists.

“Wella TrendVision leads the way with providing an unparalleled opportunity to celebrate the stylist’s artistry,” she continues. “We are so proud of the talent and look forward to celebrating these artists into our Wella family at our Gala Event in January.”

One of the industry’s most esteemed competitions, the annual TrendVision Awards showcase the very best in creative and colour talent, honouring Wella Professional’s local and international network of stylists.
