As you all may know by now that I get my hair done at HOB Salon in Hale Village. From weekly blow drys to full colour transformations this is my go-to salon! I’ve known the owner Shabaz for a long time now and through his years at the salon he has selected the very best of hairdressers, who are all individually talented at their own thing.
For cutting and styling and THE best blow drys Ben is your guy and when it comes to colour Suzi is just outstanding! The salon have been talking about the TrendVision competition for a few weeks now… and at first I didn’t really know what it was but as the weeks have gone by and I’ve seen how passionate all of the team at HOB are about TrendVision I wanted to know more!
So Lauren and Suzi have both got through to the finals of the competition in their own categories and I can’t wait to see how the finals go after the Summer! Here is a bit about the competition process so far:
HOB Salons, Hale are celebrating after reaching the national finals of the prestigious international Wella TrendVision Award. One of the most iconic competitions in the hairdressing calendar, Wella TrendVision is judged by leading hairdressing media and industry icons.
HOB Salons’ Style Director, Lauren Bickerton is a finalist in the Creative Vision category, with her colleague, Suzi Lawley, Colour Director, a finalist for ColorVision. To reach the finals both women had already made it through the first stage, submitting a photo entry of a style they had each created. Having been selected from hundreds of other entries for the regional final, they then had to recreate the style live on stage in front of a panel of judges.
Suzi had to demonstrate a beautiful, colour focused, trend-led look, which is wearable and reflects salon relevant hair, whilst Lauren’s brief was to express creative vision with an on trend cut and finish or hair up, with an editorial catwalk feel. Both took inspiration from Wella’s NEW NORM by Pastforward: daringly “normal”: honest, uncomplicated, decidedly comfortable.
Suzi and Lauren will now compete at the UK & Ireland final on Tuesday 5 September 2017 at The Roundhouse, Camden, London. The winners of the two international categories (COLOR VISION and CREATIVE VISION) will then compete at the International TrendVision Award Final in London in October.
Shabaz Hussain, HOB Salons manager says, “Suzi and Lauren have worked incredibly hard to reach this far in the competition and the Hob Salons team and clients are immensely proud of them. We are always keen for our stylists to demonstrate their talent both in and out of the salon. We are now looking forward to the national finals.”
