Sean's firm turns on style at championships

THE Kerry based Sean Taaffe Hair Group has won four of the top Awards at the annual Irish Hairdressing Championships, the most prestigious event in the Irish hair stylists' industry calendar.

More than 300 stylists from all over Ireland, representing the 'cream of the chop' of the Irish hairdressing industry, showed their competitive edge as they battled it out to win at the Irish Hairdressing Championships 2013.

Sean Taaffe claimed second place in the Men's Full Fashion category and third place in the Ladies Full Fashion section. Meanwhile the group's head stylist, Marta Plechowska, won silver in the Ladies Long Hair Up and finished third in the Ladies Fashionable Hairstyle on Long Hair category. The Sean Taaffe team had presented entries in each of the 13 categories.

The multi award winning Sean Taaffe Group is Kerry's leading hairdressing Group, employing 42 people in its seven businesses.

"We are absolutely thrilled with achieving an incredible seven top ten places at the IHF championships. It was a huge team effort and everyone in our Group played their part in making this happen," said Sean Taffe.

The awards cap off a successful few months for the group. Last November, the Group won the the Alfaparf Fantastic Salon 2012, making it the No 1 Salon in Ireland.
