In 1954, the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy held its first ever event at the Assembly Rooms in London, with just over 300 spectators and under 20 stylists. Even from the start, the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy was a sensation. Within 5 years, it was moved to the renowned Royal Albert Hall, and considered the largest competition of its kind in the world.

Today, it remains the most prominent hairdresser's competition in Britain. Over the years, the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy has evolved from a single award competition to include the Regional Finals, the Men's Image Award and the Young Colourist Award. It has transformed from a hairdresser's competition to an inspiring gala event with dinner and dazzling show-stopping performances. With past celebrity presenters like Melanie Sykes, Cat Deeley, Davina McColl, Diana Lumley, Graham Norton and Fearne Cotton, the calibre of energy is unrivalled.

Above all else, what really distinguishes the L'Oréal Professionel Colour Trophy beyond all other competitions is its capacity to inspire. For over 50 years, The L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy has been the benchmark of British hairdressing inspiration, with its outstanding level of competitive work and its leading selection of judges. Since its first competition, the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy has exceeded its own level of excellence each year that the bar is raised and the level of distinction is surpassed. It has had the unique capability to really put to test the quality of the hairdresser live. In 2009 the competition will evolve once again with the introduction of the Mizani Afro Catwalk Award proving that the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy truly does set the standard of British hairdressing innovation!
