Alan d Hairdressing Education are celebrating the Ipswich team reaching the grand final for the Men’s category of L’Oréal’s national competition in London.
The event, on Sunday April 23, was held as part of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy competition.
However, success wasn’t without drama after their model was stuck in Italy until late Saturday night on April 23.
Luckily for the team, they had worked on Mario’s hair regularly in the build-up to Sunday’s event and just about had time to add the finishing touches at the Academy before driving across to RAF Duxford, in Cambridgeshire for the Eastern Region Final.
Creative Director of Alan d Hairdressing Education, Edward Hemmings, said “I’m so proud of the hard work Marc and Charlotte put in.
“We have long seen the trend for longer men’s hair, but they were insistent that Mario with his shoulder-length hair was a winner.
“Charlotte planned the colour by a series of technical drawings and Marc had the finishing techniques perfected.
“We were all conscious that the look had to be commercial and more important masculine.
“Together with a bespoke suit create by Stephen Williams Tailoring I think the look was perfect. We simply can’t wait for London.”
