Limerick's Manhattan star stylist to expand
Limerick man John Barrett, above, stylist to Hollywood stars such as Julia Roberts, has secured backing from US hedge-fund tycoon James R Hedges to dramatically expand his Manhattan hair salon empire.
Barrett, the fifth of 10 children, who emigrated to the US from Limerick at a young age, operates an exclusive salon at Manhattan's Bergdorf Goodman. The funding deal will see the salon open in six other US cities and expand its product range.
