The L'Oréal Professional and Toni&Guy collaboration culminated in a Grand Final show hosted by Central Saint Martins. "I just wanted to say a huge thank for all your support yesterday. The event was such a great success, and the feedback from everyone who attended has been fantastic. We will definitely be back!"- Bev Rowe, L’Oréal Professionnel
