1954 saw the dawn of a new era in the world of Hairdressing. Tottenham Court Road in London provided the backdrop to the very first L’Oréal Colour Trophy. 

A competition that would go on to become the longest running live hairdressing competition in the world.

From these humble beginnings of what originally was intended to be a quest for the best, the competition quickly took on its own momentum.  By the sixties the L’Oréal Colour Trophy had traversed the regions uncovering talent from all across the UK and touring with a roadshow of models, artists, stylists and musicians. 

Growing in reach from an audience of 300 to a staggering 5000, the prestigious and vast Royal Albert Hall hosted what had fast become one of the most renowned hairdressing competitions, the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final. Ireland soon followed and launched the L’Oréal Colour Trophy in 1966.

Fast forward six and a half decades, the world’s longest running live hairdressing competition in the world will celebrate 65 years of uncovering the artistry, the mastery and the talent of UK & Irish hairdressing.  Monday 13th September 2021 marks another milestone in the L’Oréal Colour Trophy’s history, seeing the event take to a purely virtual stage, and hosting in one night both the UK and Ireland Grand Finals.


L’Oréal Professionnel invites YOU to join in an evening to discover the brightest new talent, witness spectacular hair artistry by some of the most eminent hair masters and globally renowned art teams as well as celebrate 65 years of one of the most spectacular Industry competitions in the world.

This is history in colour.

This is your life in colour.
