Entry is now open for this year’s Goldwell Haircolor Color Zoom Challenge. The largest and most high profile color competition allows passionate colorists to leave their mark on the national and international stylist community, and walk away with the coveted title of Gold, Silver, or Bronze Global Creative Colorist, Global New Talent Colorist, or Global Partner Colorist. Winners will also join the Goldwell Haircolor Global Color Zoom Creative Team to create a forthcoming must-have Color Zoom collection.
Derrick Zeno, Gold Winner in the Global Partner Colorist division for Color Zoom 2013 and Goldwell North American Artistic Team member was the first U.S. contestant to take home the prize in this category. “Winning the ultimate Color Zoom title in my category was an absolute honor, and helped propel my career to new heights. In the years since, I’ve discovered my passion for helping other stylists hone their craft, traveling the world as an educator and mentor," Zeno says. In 2014, winners from around the world took home top honors—Tawain’s Hardy Tsai for Global Creative Colorist, Russia’s Lidia Malez for Gloabl New Talent Colorist, and Hong Kong’s Lok Chan for Global Partner Colorist.
