Each Color Zoom Collection comes with a Color, Cut and
Styling concept which is related to the fashion trend.

Your perfect technical execution is a look with optimally
balanced color, cut and styling.
You’ve interpreted the trend and used
the collection concept.
Now it’s all about the total look – the overall appearance of
hair, make up and fashion, as well as the professionalism
and aesthetics of the model and photography.
Color creations must be created with Goldwell products only, e.g. Topchic, Colorance, Nectaya, @PurePigments and/or Elumen.
In all categories, hair can be lightened and bleached with Goldwell products, e.g. Topchic HiBlondes Control, SilkLift and Oxycur Platin.
The hairstyle and color must be in focus and easy to identify on the photo.
No extensions, hairpieces or wigs are allowed.
No full body pictures, show maximum up to chest.
No black or white photos. No Polaroids.
You will be judged on your photographic entry.
If you want to retouch your photo, please consider the following: Retouching minor skin or hair imperfections is certainly standard practice and allowed.
Extreme retouching work to skin or hair will be taken into account by the judges and your score will reflect this. Don’t forget that your live result must look
the same as your entry photo. Excessively photoshopped pictures are very difficult to recreate in a live setting. You will be scored accordingly.
More than 1 employee per salon can enter, but only 1 technique/1 photo, entry per person is permitted.
Male or female models, minimum age: 18.
At the international live contest you will have to color, cut and style a model to recreate the look on your entry photograph.
