BLOOD MOON HITS LONDON
We hit the big stage in London this week! Cerys, the creator of Blood Moon, competed in the national finals of the Wella TrendVision Awards 2019.
Not only did we take the salon name to national levels, but we competed against some huge salon powerhouses within our industry.
Cerys said "These are salon houses that I was inspired by and looked up to when I was in training. To be competing at the same level as them is completely surreal! Although I don't have a lot of experience working with Wella as a brand, they treated me like royalty and gave me the same care and attention as every other competitor. I encourage everyone to enter TrendVision 2020. I've really stretched my creative legs and tested my hairdressing ability. Winning the trophy isn't the only thing you can take away from entering these awards!"
Although Cerys didn't secure a place in the top 3, Cerys made the top 15 colourists in the country and the top 4 in the whole of the North! We are proud, to say the least!!

WELLA TRENDVISION REGIONAL WINNER!
You're a winner, baby!
Blood Moon creator, Cerys, has been crowned a regional winning Colour Artist at the Wella Trend Vision Awards. An amazing first success for the salon.
Trend Vision is a national competition run by Wella, a leading brand and creative powerhouse within the hair industry. To even make it to the regional finals you must create a stunning photographic image of hair you've created, explaining why you've done it, your inspiration behind it and how it suits the model you've chosen.
15 lucky finalists then go on to compete in their regional finals where it gets a little trickier. Here you need to present a fully designed head to toe look and send them down a runway to be judged by the industries finest. Oh, and be scrutinised in a 5 minute one to one interview with the judging panel!
Cerys' look was inspired by an anti colour concept and was named "Absence of Colour" (ironic for a colour category!).
"The clothing and styling was influenced by anti feminine fashion, taking inspiration from icons such as Billie Eilish, Yolandi and Zendaya, who are so fluid in their fashion. They break the stereo type of what's feminine. This complimented my non conformist concept".
So what's next? Cerys gets to compete against the big dogs at the national final in London on the 30th September.

Good luck, and don't f**k it up!
