BLUSHES are on a high after BOTH their teams from their Gloucester and their Cheltenham salon won two of only 4 coveted places in the Western Heat of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2015. The teams fought off strong competition and wowed a panel of high-profile award winning judges with their Autumn/Winter 2015/16 fashion inspired looks. The teams will now have to go head to head to compete at the Grand Final event which could see one of them winning one of the coveted L’Oréal Colour Trophy 2015.

Last night at The Western Regional Final, held at Chateau Impney, Regent Exhibition Centre in Droitwich, The team from the Gloucester salon, lead by Cheryl Oakey and the team from Cheltenham salon lead by Lottie Davis had only 30 minutes to create their fashion inspired, flawless winning looks under the gaze of the elite group of accomplished judges, the team were up against 58 other salons in the inspiring, high energy regional final.

“This is really amazing, it was such a surreal experience on the night. Cheltenham’s name was called first and obviously everyone was delighted for the team, but the Gloucester team were also disappointed as we all thought that we wouldn’t get both teams through. Then as they called out our name again – I think we all just erupted – there are certainly a lot of sore throats here this morning. This 60th Grand Final is going to be incredibly special for the salon” Dominic Blake, Director of Blushes
