HAIRDRESSERS Journal International hosted its British Hairdressing Awards recently, with 1,700 of the UK’s finest hairstylists gathering at London’s Grosvenor House for the industry event.
Amongst the trophies handed out on the night was Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year, which was awarded to Julian Dalrymple of The Sitting Room Hairdressing in Ballymena.
Speaking on her win, Julian said: “The talent in this category is so strong and I’m awe of every single one of them – so to be crowned winner is incredible.”
Now in their fourth decade, the awards, which are sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, celebrate the very best in British hairdressing talent – an industry which contributes £7billion to the national economy and one which employs more than 300,000 people.
With nine regional and six specialist categories – as well as the ultimate award, British Hairdresser of the Year , the awards have launched the careers of a host of household names including John Frieda, Nicky Clarke and Charles Worthington.
