When it comes to creating exceptional hair colour and the hottest catwalk looks, a team of hairdressers from Mack in Chelmsford have
proved they are among the best in the UK having made it through to the Grand Final of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2007.
Catherine Seeman and Lisa Redman beat off stiff competition from thirty-nine salons across the Eastern region to clinch their place in
the Grand Final in London on Monday 21 May. They are now one step closer to winning the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy and a
once-in-a-lifetime prize that could see them jetting over to New York to produce a photo spread for fashion bible Vogue.
At the Eastern Regional Final their live hairdressing skills were put under the spotlight by a panel of top hairdresser judges
including Harriet White, Jonny Engstrom, Andrew Mulvenna and Jamie Brooks. “This region has once again proved itself as a strong
contender. It’s great to see people paying attention to what’s happening on the catwalk and interpreting forthcoming fashions into
wearable looks, explained Harriet White, judge at the Eastern region.”
The Mack Artistic Team’s inspiration came from the “boy meets girl” androgynous look seen on the catwalk Spring/Summer 2007 and
continuing through with an even stronger presence into autumn/winter by designers such as Burberry and Prorsum. They took this
forward doing a short asymmetric crop on their model Clare, who was the perfect illustration of this type of look.
Catherine and Lisa explain the thinking behind their striking image: “We went for a strong, vibrant, copper colour on Clare’s hair,
integrating the autumnal look and colour. The outfit was chosen to compliment the hairs rich, warm tones, whilst the satin neck tie
continued the nod towards the tom-boy look and then finished with the feminine touches of the satin texture.”
