With more than 215,000 entries from 61 countries and 26 categories and a total of 652 finalist shots, John Spanton of Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team has been named International Winner in the Behind the Chair #ONESHOT Hair Awards with his already iconic image from his A Study in Black & White collection.
“For a long time, I wanted to shoot a collection with black and white hair, and as we are seeing so much bright colourful hair, the 15-year-old in me felt the need to rebel against that and keep the work really monochromatic. As a colourist, I wanted to work on wefts added into the hair and I only wanted to paint freehand, no taping or masking of the hair, to create the effect so I could keep a realism within the work.”
“It’s amazing to have my work recognised internationally, I’m incredibly flattered that the judges chose my image in a category of colourists I really admire. I struggle with new ideas, they don’t fall out my head so easily! I’ve got one idea I’m working on that we will show you at our Salon International show on the 15th October.” says John.
John will join the award-winning Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team, including Trevor Sorbie himself live on stage at Salon International on October 15th at 10:30am to launch a whole new collection of work.
