The AIPP Grand Trophy Award Ceremony was held on Sunday, April 6th at Cosmoprof Worldwide 2014 (Bologna, Italy), the most important professional beauty event in Europe. The Ceremony was presented by Roberto Pissimiglia, AIPP President, who welcomed on stage the winner, who travelled to Bologna to receive his brand new AIPP Grand Trophy Award.
Christophe admitted to be very moved and proud to be recognized by the editors of the best professional magazines in the world and shared his excitement with the audience. "I'm proud to be here. This Trophy is an important acknowledgement of the hairdresser's art because it comes from an absolutely impartial jury, not linked to any company or brand name. This is an award that is presented by the entire world of hairdressing! Moreover, knowing that I was a finalist together with Angelo Seminara, an artist that I esteem so much, was a marvelous surprise that made me especially proud. This is a moment that fills me with joy and further enhances everything I've done in my career as a hairdresser, since I started when I was only 15 years old."
