L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2012 Grand Finale – Part 1

Hairdressing’s most prestigious Award brought together excellence and innovations from young, creative, and talented Malaysians.

Kuala Lumpur, 20 September 2012.

L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2012 Grand Finale unleashed creativity beyond imagination with beauty in French Perfection!

L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2012, the Oscars of the hairdressing industry, culminated with an inspiring Grand Finale as 14 top finalists brought the competition to another level with extraordinary hair creations! The event also saw L’Oréal Professionnel’s 5 Artistic Ambassadors & International GUest Artiste whipped out an impressive showcase entitled Artisanal Excellence and Tribute to Beauty respectively. The shows concept reinforced the brand’s link to fashion and most importantly, reinventing the profession.

A Tribute to Beauty was aptly chosen as the theme for this year’s competition as it paid homage to the success and tribulations of famous hairdressers with styles that are distinctively French. HengThang Yih, GM of Professional Products Division, L’Oréal Malaysia commented, “This year, we celebrate a French story, a prevailing style, a higher sense of fashion and beauty in four aspects that reflect the French sense of beauty of L’Oréal Professionnel – Beauty in Hairdressing, Beauty in Women, Beauty in Life and Beauty in Arts.”

The Grand Finale was an extraordinary showdown where the 14 finalists showed what they were made of by presenting judges with amazing hair creations that were cutting edge, forward and evoked a sense of modernity. Some of the creations even phantom next season’s trends such as the colour of deep amethyst as seen on the Toyota Vios 1.5G Limited, which was prominent in the hair creations by the finalists.

The winner of L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2012 will walk away with the coveted title and prizes worth RM155,000, a brand new TOyota Vios 1.5G Limited in Deep Amethyst Mica Metallic along with a 5-Day 3-Night trip to London to be part of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy United Kingdom Gala Night, a feature in Malaysia’s top women’s magazines namely Female, NuYou and Eh! and exposure on an international platform by having the opportunity to experience another L’Oréal Colour Trophy in one of the Asian countries as an esteemed judge.

The first runner up will receive a prestigious plaque, trip to Australia and entrance to L’Oréal Colour Trophy Australia whilst the second runner up will receive a prestigious plaque, trip to one Asian country and entrance to L’Oréal Colour Trophy, held in the respective countries. Other awards presented include Editor’s Choice Award, Estetica Cover Award, Sin Chew’s Readers’ Choice Award, Shu Uemura Makeup Award and Star Clove’s Readers’ Choice Award.
