New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year 2004

L’Oréal Professionnel announces
New Zealand Hairdresser
of the Year 2004

Burnetta Haswell from Servilles, Mission Bay was named New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year 2004 at a glittering event at the new Skycity Convention Centre on Saturday night, when she won the L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy Supreme Award (see attached image).

Hayley Pullyn, also of Servilles Mission Bay took the Young Colourist Award and Trudi Cochrane from Hairline Hair Designers in Hamilton set the standard for men’s hair fashion winning the Couleur Pour Hommes Award.

Runner-up to the Hairdresser of the Year was Grant Bettjeman, owner of Bettjemens Hair Associates in Orakei.

Other awards presented on the night included the Salon Team Award, for teams of up to six people. This award recognises that in many salons colourists, stylists, hairdressers and a senior consultant will often pool their talents to create a client’s look.

A young team from Servilles Albany - all under 21 years old - won the Salon Team Award. The team included: Aimee Stephenson (cut), Bianca Deus (colourist), Adele Lowe (stylist), Helen Blair (stylist) and Debbie Oswin (stylist). Their model was Justine Warrington.

All the photographic portfolios were also considered for the Images Magazine Award and the Photographers Award.

Angeline Thornley from Rodney Wayne Hairdressing in Wellington (also a finalist for New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year) took out the Images Magazine Award for the best portfolio of three entries that would work together as a spread in a hairdressing magazine.

Photographer Angela Henderson and hairdresser Terry Whaitiri from Servilles in Mission Bay won the Photographers Award. This entry was judged by renowned fashion photographer Craig Owen to be the strongest, demonstrating a combination of the photographer’s technical skill and creative interpretation.

Now in its 11th year the L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy Awards is regarded as the ultimate achievement throughout the hairdressing industry. The event was the grand finale to an exhilarating day for the winners and the 16 other finalists who represent the very best of New Zealand hairdressing.

The finalists were selected from more than 300 photographic portfolios submitted by hairdressers from around the country. For the finalists in the three main awards, the pressure was on. In just three hours each finalist had to recreate the exact look from their photographic portfolios using their original models.

After their hectic day, the hairdressers had the thrill of joining their models on the stage, as part of a show, which also featured an impressive avant-garde hair display and starred top New Zealand fashion designers Karen Walker and Trelise Cooper. The post-event party featured top local band One Million Dollars and DJ Dunc the Funk.

As winner of the Supreme Award, Burnetta Haswell’s winning entry will front the cover of a special Colour Trophy magazine that is soon to be released to salons around New Zealand. She will also travel to Paris, the home of L’Oréal Professionnel, and then on to London to attend the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the UK Colour Trophy Awards 2005.

For the first time in the history of this event the main awards were judged by an entirely international judging panel. The judges were:

- Jo Hansford: Colourist to the stars. Liz Hurly, Raquel Welch, our very own Rachel Hunter, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Melanie Griffiths, and Minnie Driver – to name but a few of those who have trusted their image with the woman referred to as the leading female hair colourist in Britain today.
- Paul Divitaris: The man behind the innovative Biba Salons and the Biba Academy Melbourne. He has worked with Vidal Sassoon and Alan International in London. Paul won the Australian Colour Trophy Supreme award in 2002.
- Anne-Marie Garreffa: Artistic director of respected South Australian salon Hair Machine, and winner of the Australian Colour Trophy in 1998 and 2001. This will be her second time judging Colour Trophy in New Zealand.
The L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy Awards are held around the world, and are internationally respected for demonstrating the future of hair fashion. All of the winners announced at the awards will have an effect on the way New Zealanders wear their hair for the next season and beyond.
