THE JUDGING CRITERIA

  • THE JURY

    Members of the national and the international
    juries consist of independent hairdressers, trade press,
    journalists and fashion experts from the hair and
    beauty industry. Here’s what they expect from you.

    Be aware of these judging criteria and maximize
    YOUR SCORE.

  • 40% SCORE FOR TREND INTERPRETATION

    Show your creativity and create your own ELEMENTAL
    style without copying the collection.

    Be familiar with the current ELEMENTAL Collection, know
    the fashion trend background and interpret it in YOUR
    own style. A style that represents the underlying trend
    AND showcases your personality.

    Be creative, be original and put your signature
    on the trend.

  • 40% SCORE FOR TECHNICAL EXECUTION

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

    Use the techniques in an innovative and individual way.

    Your perfect technical execution is a look with optimally
    balanced color, cut and styling.

  • 20% SCORE FOR TOTAL LOOK

    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.

THE RULES

1
Color creations have to be created with Goldwell products only, e.g. Topchic, Colorance, Elumen and/or Nectaya. In all categories hair can be lightened
and bleached with Goldwell products, e.g. Topchic HiBlondes Control, SilkLift and Oxycur Platin.

2
The hairstyle and color must be in focus and easy to identify on the photo.

3
No extensions, hairpieces or wigs are allowed.

4
No full body pictures, show maximum up to chest.

5
No black or white photos. No Polaroids.

6
You will be judged on your photographic entry.

7
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 has to look
the same as your entry photo. Excessively photoshopped pictures are very difficult to recreate in a live setting. You will be scored accordingly.

8
More than one employee per salon can enter, but only one technique/one photo entry per person is permitted.

9
Male or female models, minimum age: 19.

10
At the international live contest you will have to color, cut and style a model to recreate the look on your entry photograph.
