Wella Announces Finalists for the 2020 Beauty Envision Awards


Each year, Wella presents the Beauty Envision Awards, a competition for salon professionals to showcase their talent and creativity for the next era of beauty. Hosted by Coty, the competition allows hair and nail professionals of all stages of their careers to enter for a chance to win a $5,000 Visa gift card, along with professional products from ProfessionalStore.com.

Because of the current pandemic, this year’s competition has gone completely digital. Salon pros used Instagram to enter and voting took place on BeautyEnvisionAwards.com. A judging panel of top industry professionals has now narrowed down the entries to select finalists for all twelve categories.
