L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2021 Winners

It’s the 65th year of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy and what better way to get to know the winners and runners up from the UK and Ireland than by asking them to share a fun fact about themselves.

The L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final The Virtual Edition took place on Monday 13 September. HJ was there in person to see the central stage come alive – as stylists and salons watched virtually from their living rooms. With breath-taking salon shows, super cool stage effects, and mesmerising hairdressing talent, alongside guest host TV & Radio presenter Vick Hope, it sure was a night to remember.

Congratulations to all the finalists, winners and runners up and thank you for sharing your fun facts – some of them certainly made us smile…
