Local hairdresser recognised as one of UK’s top hair colourists

Chiara Pirrone, from leading hair salon, SANRIZZ, in St Albans has been recognised as one of the UK’s top professional hair colourists.

Chiara Pirrone, from leading hair salon, SANRIZZ, in St Albans has been recognised as one of the UK’s top professional hair colourists following her success at reaching the UK & Ireland Final of the hairdressing industry’s most prestigious competition, the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2015, in the Color Category.

This year’s Wella Professionals TrendVision Award had over 500 entries at the initial Photographic stage, with Regional Heats taking place across the country in Edinburgh, Manchester, Nottingham and London over the last few weeks.

Following Chiara Pirrone’s success in the Southern Regional Heat last week, they are now one of only 36 UK hairdressers to reach this year’s UK & Ireland Final, making her one of the country’s most sought-after and in-demand professional hair colourists.

Created to discover and acknowledge the industry’s most skilled hair stylists and colourists, the competition focuses on all aspects of hair styling and colouring, and the Photographic and Regional Heats are judged by some of the UK’s leading hair icons. Each year, Wella Professionals produces key trend looks that are designed to inspire the competition. The Young Talent Category is open to stylists under 30 years old to showcase their styling, technical and finishing skills, whilst the NEW Color Vision Category gives colourists of any age the opportunity to express their creativity and put their colouring skills to the test.

The annual four stage competition kicked off earlier this year with a Photographic Entry and Chiara made it through to the Southern Regional Final where they showcased their chosen trend on a live model in a dazzling evening show.

“I’m so proud to have reached the UK & Ireland Final of such a prestigious competition. I’ve always had a huge passion for hair and I am very excited about taking part and competing against the best hairdressers in the country at the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final in October” says Chiara Pirrone

Now, Chiara will have time to prepare for the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final, one of the industry’s biggest and most inspirational events. Due to take place on Monday 5th October at legendary cultural venue – the Roundhouse in London’s Camden – competitors will showcase their model in front of hundreds and be judged by the best in the industry for the opportunity to walk away with the ultimate accolade in hairdressing. Should Chiara be successful at the UK & Ireland Final, they will benefit from a dedicated mentoring programme which will then see them taking part during the International TrendVision Award, due to take place in Berlin in November 2015.
