Wispers Reaches Semi Final of L’Oreal Colour Trophy 2022

Although interrupted by Covid over the last two years, L’Oreal have re-introduced their long running and prestigious competition again this year and Alex, Caitlin and Hayley all entered into different categories. L’Oreal Colour Trophy is a heavily subscribed national competition and the standard of entry is extremely high. We are very proud of all three entries and each of our entrants, spent a lot of their own time in terms of the creative insight, preparation and then participating in the final styling and creative photo shoot in late February.

We are pleased to announce that Alex and Caitlin have made it through to the Semi Finals in London on April 10th where they will have to re-create a look and image on a live model in front of a panel of judges. Success in this round will see them enter the National Final in June 2022. It is a significant achievement to have two of our entries make it this far and congratulations to them both – we will be supporting them all the way and wishing all the best of luck for the Semi Final.

Alex Tears Up The Stage – F.A.M.E Final 2022

Alex, supported by the whole Wispers Team took part in the F.A.M.E 2022 Final at Salon International at The Excel London on Monday 18th October. She had two 20 minute slots in front of a live audience as well as some of the hair industries leading icons such as Errol Douglas MBE, Sally Brooks, Ken Picton, Junior Green and Ashleigh Hodges to compete two looks of her own inspiration.

Alex chose the Ivy Asia restaurant in London and completed a complicated Hair Up on her first model including a Sushi Rolling Mat (!!) to support the shaft and then presented an amazing precision cut and complex colour on her second model.

Alex got an amazing reaction and we will find out if she has made the 2022 Team at an Industry Luncheon on December 6th in London. We are very proud of Alex and she could not have done any more in terms of presentation of execution on the day. Well done Alex and fingers crossed for the result!
