THE EVENT: HAIR PLAY, an evening of education and inspiration from teams from Goldwell, KMS California and Arrojo.

DETAILS: It was quite the night at the Gotham in NYC as dozens of artists and models took to the stage to teach the latest in cut, color and design. With the goal to highlight the key initiatives and programs for 2016, each brand scored. More than 450 salon professionals attended to see the Goldwell team (Rebecca Hiele, Mark Holloway and Nick Pagano) create elegant color designs and present the Blonde and D!srupt Collections and introduce Kerasilk, the KMS California team (Simon Miller, Sonna Brado and Lori Panarello) demonstrate new shapes and Nick Arrojo and team razor and American Perm up a storm. Artists on stage and in the audience were engaged and energized.

HIGHLIGHTS: Dozens of models graced the stage. Among the many highlights were presentations featuring: the Blonde Collection, Kerasilk Luxury Hair Care, Color Zoom Distrupt Collection, KMS 40th anniversary and the Arrojo Team.

THE LAST WORD: "We all know that knowledge is power," says Rebecca Hiele. "Advancing your knowledge as an artist in your craft of hair creates a new energy and excitement to your work, while giving you confidence and inspiration. It helps hair dressers continue to master new technique of color, gives the most innovative detail to cut design, and pushes styling and finishing hair from great to amazing. The teams of Goldwell, KMS and Arrojo are tied together with the philosophy of seeking not only what is trending now but how trends will influence what's next.  HAIR PLAY is an event to ignite artists with an on going passion to challenge their artistry and continue to love what they do!!"

Everything You Need to Know About the Goldwell Color Zoom Competition

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
