Black Amber's Hannah Kavanagh wins Hair Stylist Award
Stylist Hannah Kavanagh from Black Amber Salon in Gorey has received the 'Fantastic Fantasy Hair Stylist Award' at the Alfaparf Milano Fantastic Hairdresser awards.
Now in its ninth year, the awards were hosted by TV presenter Brendan Courtney at the RDS last weekend. It was attended by some 1,200 stylists.
The theme of this year's show was 'Go Modern', inspired by the 'Mod' style-culture movement prevalent in 60's London. Paul Stafford, Alfaparf Milano Global Ambassador, explained that 'modernism' or 'mod' culture and style is all about moving forward and wanting to keep up with looks, thinking, attitude, music, cuts, clothes and fashion, where it's all linked by a feeling of confidence and coolness.
The awards were judged by a panel of five, comprising of internationally renowned industry experts Joseph Koniak, Alessandro Fratini, Sean Dawson, Vivica Davies and Alan Edwards.
