Wella Professionals Regional Trend Vision Winners Announced

Saturday evening 21 talented stylists competed in Wella Professionals regional Trend Vision competition hosted at Revel Fulton Market. Over 300 guests cheered on their favorite competitor in each category: Student, Creative Vision and Color Vision.

Finalists crafted their creative interpretation of their chosen 2016 Wella Professional Trend movement, gleaning inspiration from either the Spring / Summer trend Molten Ecaille or Autumn / Winter trend Bronde Luxe. A team of experts were on-site helping bring their vision to life, including wardrobe stylists, make-up artists and a photographer to snap the essential image that entered them into the National Trend Vision competition. 

Finalists took the stage and presented their final looks to the judge’s panels which included 2015 Young Talent Trend Vision winner Alisha Basham, Wella Top Artist Sonya Dove and Modern Salon’s West Coast Beauty Editor Anne Moratto.
