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. The goal is to create a look that encapsulates the brief of a ‘well executed, inspirational, modern colour with a beautiful editorially inspired style and finish on a female model, complementing an Autumn / Winter 2013/14 fashion trend to create a show-stopping total look’.

Scott Robb and Kerry Hoggan are part of a very excited salon team who are overjoyed with having broken through to the next level of the competition. The team will now join 65 other salons from across the Scottish & Northern Irelandregion in a bid to secure the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2013.

Scott, from Scott Robb Hairdressing told us, ‘We’re delighted to have made it to the Scottish finals, indeed this year the competition was even tougher as they have combined the Scottish and Northern Irish regions.  We’ve made the Scottish final for the past 9 years and in 2011 we made the British final in London, one of 2 salons representing the Scottish hairdressing industry in the Men’s Image Awards and we’re hoping that this year we can replicate that success in the female category.’

The fashion fuelled, high energy event will be one of seven highly anticipated regional finals happening across the country and will be hosted by TVs new it girlZoe Hardman co-host of Take Me Out: The Gossip alongside Mark Wright for ITV2. Each salon team will only have 45 tense minutes to bring their model look to life and demonstrate that they are the region’s most talented and creative hairdressers to a panel of judges consisting of acclaimed hairdressers. Award winning hairdresser and judge Trevor Sorbie MBE comments:

It’s an amazing achievement to make it to this stage, the Regional finals have an amazing atmosphere and it’s great to bring talented hairdressers from all over the region under roof. What turns my head and captures my attention is when all the elements come together, great model with styling and makeup that work flawlessly with the cut and colour – an overall look that looks effortless.

About Scott Robb Photography

I have worked in the hairdressing industry for over 20 years through my creative work I have developed a keen eye for detail and composition that has transferred into my photography. I’ve had a passion for photography since the advent of digital cameras back in the nineties and became more serious about it after I bought my first Canon SLR. My first commercial work was producing hair & fashion images for competitions such as the Loreal Colour Trophy and Wella Trend Vision. In 2009 I completed a diploma course from the Photography Institute and this has given me the skills to direct my knowledge in many genres of photography, from fashion to food and family portraits to wedding photography. Shortly after completitng my diploma I was asked by a colleague if I was interested in shooting a wedding - not only did it allow me to use my photographic skills, I also discovered that capturing those special moments was something I really enjoyed doing.
