The beautiful grade I listed warehouse, Tobacco Dock in East London was the setting for the Color Zoom UK Final, which saw gold, silver and bronze winners being announced in three categories.
More than 550 hairdressers from across the UK enjoyed cocktails in the outdoor courtyard before watching two spectacular shows based on the 2017 collection, IN-FLUX.
Inspirational hairdressers Mark Leeson and Neil Barton presented dark, elegant colours with mysterious shapes and dramatic textures. There was a fusion between iridescent light and dramatic darkness, in shows that had the audience on their feet. Beverly C also came on stage and talked about the mentoring programme for the 2017 winners.
The gold winners will now go to Barcelona to represent the UK at the international grand final in October, competing against winners from other countries.
The UK gold winners are:
Lydia Wolfe, Tony Wood Hairdressing
Caroline Brand, Oracle Hair & Beauty
Nicholas Holmes, Hobson & Holmes
