Modern Salon Feature | Want to Win a Competition? Learn from The Judges!


What does it take to win a hair competition? Larisa Love, Kien Hoang, Sandra Humphries, Andrea DeLeon and MODERN's Maggie Mulhern just spent the better part of today judging Goldwell's Color Zoom Challenge and have the inside scoop. "I am in awe of the entries," said Hoang as the judging wrapped up. "This was incredible."

The judges (minus DeLeon, Vice President of Marketing, KAO, USA who had to leave early) met on the balcony off the penthouse of the Goldwell/KMS Academy in the Meatpacking district of NYC (where the national leg of Color Zoom was held) to chat about the entries and to share thoughts on competition best practices. If you are ever entering a competition, this is a must!

We're excited to announce that @kienhoang will be part of the talented panel of judges for @goldwellus #colorzoom #competition

Goldwell USA Color Zoom | Highlight is the annual Global Zoom Event when hairstylists from all over the world come together for the finale of the Color Zoom Challenge and the presentation of the new Color Zoom Collection. The ultimate Goldwell Hair Color experience. We are looking forward to seeing you.
