Scott Robb Hairdressing in Falkland has been awarded a place in the hairdressing industry’s most fashion-led live hairdressing competition the L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2013. The acclaimed event will be happening on 11th April in The Hilton, Glasgow.
To gain a prestigious place in the Regional final the salon submitted a photograph demonstrating their technical expertise and their fashion awareness on female model. The team at Scott Robb Hairdressing were quickly noticed for their ability to produce a modern and inspirational hair colour with a stunning editorially inspired finish and shook off stiff competition of over 1000 entries from across the UK.
The team will now work witha stunning, catwalk confident model to put both their knowledge of catwalk trends and technical skill to the test on as they complete their model look live in just 45 minutes.
