Goldwell Announces 2011 Color Zoom Challenge US Semi-Finalists

Last week, I was lucky enough to be a judge for the Goldwell Color Zoom Challenge US semi-finals. After four years on the judging panel for this prestigious competition, I continue to be impressed by the quality of work, dedication and creativity of the entries. Although we had to whittle the talent pool down to just five semi-finalists in each category (New Talent, Creative, Partner), each and every colorist who submitted an image should be extremely proud of him/herself!  Without further ado, the semi-finalists are ...
