Last October, the U.S. took two country gold medals at the Goldwell Global Zoom 2015 in Las Vegas. Harley LoBasso of Hair by Scott & Company (Delray Beach, FL) won for Best Creative Colorist and Corinne Brown of Salon Circa (Seattle, WA) won as Best Partner Colorist.

In addition to the instant salon credit their win established, the winners also have the privilege of partnering with Goldwell in many ways throughout the year and beyond.

One exciting coup is their participation in the creation of the next Color Zoom collection. The two flew to London to the Goldwell/KMS studio to collaborate with the Artistic Team under the direction of  John Moroney, the VP & Global Creative Director of KAO Global Salon Division. While the final results are under wraps, MODERN SALON was there to capture the process and the excitement surrounding it. 

"We are unique in that we actively involve the winners in the creation and execution of the collection, but when they come here (to the London Goldwell/KMS studio) we have made a point of not throwing them directly into a high pressure creative situation," Moroney says. "We bring in mentors from our Artistic Team and we create an environment where they feel safe, they feel valued and they can release their creative spirit.  For us, the team dynamic is every bit as important as the end results."
