Paul Stafford is a brilliant example of fighting back from disaster
Paul Stafford has always been a very talented hairdresser, as his groaning cabinet of awards testify, but he was then badly affected by the property crash which left him bankrupt and with debts of £2m in 2012.
His prestigious Belfast salon was sold, but he and his wife were kept on as employers. Paul is nothing if not determined and now he is back at the top of his profession after winning the accolade of UK Salon Stylist of the Year.
It is an inspirational story of triumph back from the brink and should encourage anyone who has seen their business dreams crash. Hard work and talent can overcome even the harshest of blows.
