When I left the
LOréal Color Trophy last Sunday evening, my ears were still ringing from the bombastic cheering from the hair colour community—those artists sure can party. As I walked to the subway, I admired the specs of glitter covered my legs, laughed as I peeled confetti rose petals from the bottom of my shoes and couldn’t seem to stop smelling L’Oréal Professionnel Hairspray. It’s not every party you leave feeling covered in the true celebratory essence of art. In an event only fit for those truly devoted to hair, LOréal set out to crown and official winner of with the highest honour—the
2013 Color Trophy. It was the 13th year for the famed event, and the first time it was held in Toronto. After a delicious dinner, all eyes focused on the stage—something glamourous was certainly coming out way. First, models stormed the stage sporting Lucian Matis gowns. Next, a flurry of rose petals exploded (see above)—inspiring roaring cheers from the audience. Later, we were treated to a hypnotism show (quite impressive, albeit scary at times), a live competition among nine master stylists and a fall trends presentation by L’Oréal Professionel Portfolio Arist Eric Zemmour, who left the audience screaming with delight.
