Wella's International TrendVision is More than Just a Competition

Prep for the model parade

Coty’s International Trend Vision Awards has crowned its winners in Lisbon, Portugal! The three-day event changed-up its format by giving all 76 participants from around the world a one of a kind professional experience.

Teams were broken up into eight groups to compete for a trophy and be crowned the winner in one of the seven categories: Color Vision, Creative Vision, Couture Color, Speak EIMI (Editorial Look), ghd Queen Maker Look and the Social Media award. The difference? Groups were given a mentor and each day was filled with training workshops designed to elevate the stylists’ skill set with inspirational speeches by salon professionals like celebrity stylists Rossano Ferretti, had networking dinners and learned social media tips and tricks from social mavens like Sarah Potempa and participated in daily challenges to help elevate their work, all while creating their model looks.

“We wanted to make it more than a competition,” says Coty president Sylvie Moreau. The creative retreat came to a close with a model parade to show off each team’s individual looks as well as a gala to announce the winners and dance the night away. Excited to see what Coty has in store in 2019!
