LOCAL salon Guilty Hairdressing, in Kelty, has made it through the first round and into the semi-finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2019. This means that they will now go head to head with salons at the Scottish Regional Semi-Final event on Sunday March 31 at Glasgow's SEC.

During the first round, hundreds of photographic images from the country were judged by the most influential names in hairdressing, including British Hairdresser of the Year, Sally Brooks, Charlotte Mensah and Jamie Stevens as well as hairdressing icons Errol Douglas MBE and Charles Worthington MBE.

Guilty Hairdressing, Blackhall Square, fought off stiff competition and were successfully chosen to go through to the next round of the competition.

The next stage of the competition will put the team through their paces as they now look to create a truly inspirational, contemporary colour, complemented by trend-driven styling and finish.

The team of judges will be looking for work that is exceptionally executed and technically precise. Said a spokesperson for Guilty: “We are ecstatic to have be chosen out of so many. Being original is key to what we do at Guilty.”

At each Regional Semi-Final, six successful teams will be announced, two of which are guaranteed to

compete at the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final in June, as well announcing who is to be

taken forward to the Shortlisted Judging Stage.
