Lucy Tuck takes silver trophy in international hairdressing competition

Lucy was one of 82 talented finalists selected from 56 countries to compete at the prestigious Wella Professionals International Trend Vision Awards (ITVAs), which was this year held as part of the renowned Hairworld exhibition in Frankfurt.

Providing young stylists and talented colourists from across the globe with a platform on which to showcase their talent and passion to the world, Lucy was honoured in a new category, PHOTO Vision, taking second place and the silver prize in the Young Talent category for her ‘styling excellence.’

Her winning image was based on a concept called Borderline Beauty which worked with clean lines and concentrated on beautiful colour featuring tones of deep violet and smoky hues. This, of course, is all very much in line with current beauty trends and results in a stunning whimsical look.

The prize follows Lucy’s incredible success in the UK finals of the Trend Vision Awards, in which she was named Young Colourist of the Year in 2013.

“Wella Professionals Trend Vision has been an amazing journey for me,” says Lucy. “I have enjoyed every part of it and am so pleased and proud to get so far. It has been overwhelming to be involved in both the UK and International Trend Vision Awards - to pick up a trophy in both is just unbelievable!

“I have had amazing support from my Marc Antoni team, as well as Wella’s inspiring ‘mentor’ programme. I’m thrilled that my hard work has paid off and so happy to bring this trophy home to Woodley!’

Marc Antoni Director Bruno Marc Giamattei says: ‘”Lucy’s achievements are a reflection of her dedication, drive and raw talent and we’re thrilled that she has been able to represent Marc Antoni salons in this way. Winning an international award is remarkable and as her colleagues, we’re honoured to have played a part in helping her bring this trophy home to the UK.”

There are Marc Antoni Salon branches at Bracknell, Caversham, Fleet, Henley-on-Thames and Woodley. www.marcantoni.co.uk
