Co Down salon captures prestigious hairdressing award
A Co Down hair salon has claimed an historic first at the British Hairdressing Awards.
Shane Bennett Salon in Hillsborough became the first salon in Northern Ireland to win artistic team of the year at the prestigious awards.
It beat five London-based rivals to scoop the team title.
Two of Shane's stylists, Julie Cherry and Colette Fitzpatrick, were also crowned joint winners of the Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year award.
Owner Shane, a three-times winner of Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year, said: "To win this category and make history is just fantastic. We have an exceptionally talented team of stylists and colourists."
