Big award for local salon
A major award for a Dundalk salon came on the perfect day for them - International Women's Day! Clodagh Duffy and the team from Exhale Salon on the Newry Road became the first salon in Ireland to achieve the Atelier standard for their work as skin specialists.
Clodagh said she and the staff were absolutely delighted to be presented with the internationally recognised standard on International Women's Day last week.
She said: 'Atelier means tailor in Italian and the programme to achieve the standard is rigorous and thorough. It is an Italy-based, European award which recognises years of credentials and experience.
'There are only two places in Ireland who have achieved this standard - the Bioline Jato company's own flagship school in Dublin and ourselves. It means that all the hard work that has gone into achieving the standard has been worth it'.
Exhale has been in business for 15 years. For more information on Exhale, search Exhale Essential Therapies on Facebook.
