This is particularly exciting news for me as I had the honor to help judge and narrow down the finalists, prior to the final judging just completed in Germany. These three winners were at the top of my list. Equally excited is fellow judge and VP of Education for Goldwell and KMS, John Moroney. I contacted him to get his reaction to the announcement. "At this level of compeition, it becomes very difficult to choose," he told me. "All of the entries are amazing. Ultimately, what the judges had to look for was not only the execution of the cut and color, but most importantly, that the winning images really captured the true essence of the FasciNature trend. I can tell you that not only did our winners capture the trend, but they took it to the next level."
These three winners will represent the United States at Goldwell's international Color Zoom Challenge in London on October 13, 2012.
