Easydry Blog on Wella Trendvision 2017

Last Monday 31st July saw the Irish heats of the Wella Trendvision Awards take place in the Clayton Hotel Dublin. Presenter Nicky Byrne was on hand to help showcase the amazing creations! As always, the standard was incredibly high.


The finalists spent the day preparing their models and getting their styles just right. The Trendvision Awards are an industry competition which are renowned for the fusion of hair, fashion and creativity – many of the finalists helped create the models’ costumes and had makeup artists on hand to get the overall look just right. The international final is in October in London, and Ireland and UK finalists have two categories to choose from, Color Vision and Creative Vision.



There were also two new categories introduced this year, Male Grooming and Runway. The Irish winners in these categories were Sean Bryan of Cut and Sew and Alejandro of Santanna Hair Studio respectively.


Last year’s Wella Professionals International TrendVision Platinum-winning hairstylist Darren Lacken, owner of Crow Street Collective not only won the Ireland & UK final, but went on to travel the world headlining Wella events.


All of the finalists are listed below, huge congrats to everyone and best of luck to all who are competing in October!
