As you will have already seen from our gorgeous cover – the future certainly has talent. And that talent was honed by three outstanding mentors. The Wella TrendVision Award Gold 2020 winners were mentored by top Wella Artists – five-times British Hairdressing Award winner Darren Ambrose and double British Colour Technician of the Year winner and Wella Passionista Clayde Baumann. Not only were the team given the opportunity to create the looks with Darren and Clayde but they were paired with industry-leading photographer Kai Wan. What a dream team!
