The Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2018 Ireland finalist have been announced at the recent ICONS.LIVE featuring the Ireland Heat took place on Monday 20th August 2018 in the Intercontinental Hotel, Dublin.

ICONS. LIVE featuring the TrendVision Award Heats have been taking place across Ireland and the UK, and a selection of top talent has now been chosen to compete at the UK & Ireland Final, in one of the hairdressing industry’s most prestigious competitions.

From hundreds of photographic entries, a shortlist of finalists were selected to present their look at the ICONS.LIVE event featuring the Ireland Heat*, in a bid to be recognised as the next big name in Irish hairdressing.

The evening was hosted by TV personality James Kavanagh, opening with the competitor’s parade of models. Followed by an inspirational Mentors Show, from award winning hairdressing icons including Leonardo Rizzo from Sanrizz, Charlie Taylor from Charlie Taylor Hairdressing and the Irish mentor, Darren Lacken from Crow Street Collective. The Wella Professionals Style Council* collaborated with Leonardo Rizzo and Sharon Cox from Sanrizz to present an eclectic EIMI inspired show. The real excitement was the competitor parade who were all supported by family, friends and colleagues. Finally, the Irish finalists were announced and are listed below.

Now the lucky 13 Ireland finalists will go on to compete to win the chance to represent Ireland at the TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final, held on 8th October 2018 at The Roundhouse, Camden, London.

For TrendVision 2018, there are two international categories; COLOR VISION and CREATIVE VISION, whereby the UK and Ireland winners will go on to a mentoring retreat at the International final in Lisbon, Portugal, in November 2018.
In addition, there is one exclusive UK & Ireland category ; MALE GROOMING.

All winners will now experience exclusive mentoring with some of Wella’s leading hairdressing icons to help prepare them for the UK & Ireland final.

A wide range of highly acclaimed hairdressing experts judged the Ireland Heat and Wella’s Director of Education, Sheila Jackson, said the level of creativity this year was exceptionally impressive. “The UK & Ireland Heats have been brilliant, and we’ve been so impressed by the standard of the work we’re seeing. For the first time this year we offered competitors the chance to attend a ‘Create Your Look’ photographic session at one of the Wella Studios, which has resulted in some truly impressive results,” said Sheila.
