Paul Mitchell is excited to announce the grand prize winner of its 3rd annual Color Outside The Lines Australia photographic competition, Kaylee Ditchfield from Kawsa Hair Studio Victoria. With a weeklong judging period on the Paul Mitchell Instagram determining the final winner, close to seven thousand votes were received across all finalist images, with Kaylee taking out the top spot.

“Kaylee’s winning image was a beautiful representation of the creative brief we set for the competition” says Paul Mitchell Managing Director John Pizzey.

“Entrants were asked to create work that was a celebration of beautiful natural tones that represent current commercial Australian hair fashion trends, using only Paul Mitchell® Professional Hair Color & Paul Mitchell styling products. Each finalist interpreted this in their own way, showing the versatility of our colour ranges, with Kaylee’s image resonating most strongly with public voters.”

As part of her grand prize, Kaylee will now travel to Las Vegas to attend the annual Paul Mitchell The Gathering, a global education event that brings together thousands of Paul Mitchell stylists from around the globe for cutting-edge technical and business education.

Thanking her family, friends, clients and Kawsa Hair Studio owner Paul Galileos for their support throughout her career, Kaylee was at a lost for words at the realisation of achieving such a monumental career goal.

Finished Paul, “It’s an honour to be part of Kaylee’s professional journey and see her grow in skill and confidence. I speak for all our Kawsa family when I say we are very proud of her.
