The Wella International Trend Vision Competition & Awards is a yearly hairdressing and styling challenge and this year it is being held in Berlin, Germany.   69 finalists from 39 countries, all National TrendVision winners, are competing for the global title in two categories--Young Talent and Color Vision. 

MODERN is in Berlin and pulled the competitors from the United States and from Canada away from their preparations today, Saturday, long enough to hear why competing in TrendVision can be a life-changing experience.  We also spoke with their country coaches, the Wella Education team members who are leading them through this journey.
