While our World Cup dreams may have been dashed by the Danes, Irish fans were still singing Ombre, Ombre, Ombre at this year’s 52nd L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards in Dublin’s four-star Clayton Hotel on Monday July 2. Hosted by Irish TV presenter, Ruth O’Neill, guests enjoyed a chic champagne reception, followed by a black-tie gala dinner and award ceremony, all before a rip-roaring after-party in the popular city centre spot.

Local hair colourist Callum O’Donovan of The Edge Hair Design was awarded the 2018 L’Oréal Colour Trophy STAR Award, which recognises the most talented young emerging colour technicians in the hairdressing industry.
