The finalists of Goldwell's 2013 Color Zoom Challenge US Semi-Finalists have been announced. Thousands of applicants applied to the three Color Zoom Challenge categories: Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist, and Global Partnership Colorist. Here, contestants were judged on their skills and creativity, utilizing the Color Zoom 2013 "Beautify" color trends, techniques, and unconventional styles as their inspiration for their works of art.
The panel of judges included Maggie Mulhern of Modern Salon Magazine, Randy Taylor of Hairbrained and Celebrity Hair Stylist Matthew Holman among others to judge the competition and select the semi-finalists.
Based on the semi-finalists’ submissions, the judging panel will declare a national winner for each of the three entry categories. Once selected, these top candidates will be invited to participate at the Color Zoom 2013 international competition, which is taking place in Los Angeles October 5th – October 8th. It will include a live and hands-on event where the contestants will compete against national finalists from around the world for the ultimate prize: the title of Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist or Global Partner Colorist. Please join us in congratulating our 2013 Semi-Finalists!
