Sharon's crowning glory at international awards
New Ross hairdresser Sharon Sheehan has been recognised as one of the Ireland's top professional hair colourists following her success at reaching the UK & Ireland Final of the hairdressing industry's most prestigious competition, the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2017, in the Color Vision Category.
Sharon, from A C Pure salon, which is located at the Brandon House Hotel, beat off stiff competition from more than 500 entrants to scoop the title last week.
Following Sharon's success in the Irish heat she will now go onto compete at this year's UK & Ireland Final, making her one of the country's most sought-after and in-demand professional hair colourists.
In addition to being crowned one of Ireland's top hair colourists Sharon was also chosen as the Image magazine Style award winner by magazine editor in chief Melanie Morris. This is a great coup for Sharon and she will now by Image magazine's go-to expert for hair advice, tips, trends and rescue remedies. She will also judge the Image Business Of Beauty Awards and lead the charge in hair features for the next year.
Melanie Morris said Sharon was a very worthy winner.
'Every year, the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award gives the hottest hair creatives an incredible platform to showcase their expertise, and we at Image love getting this up close and personal access. In collaborating on the Image award, we've worked with some seriously talented hair stylists and this year we're over the moon to have chosen Sharon to be our go-to expert. I've been a big admirer of Sharon's work for a long time and I'm thrilled that we'll get to have her voice, tips and expertise to share with readers in Image, and on Image.ie over the next twelve months.'
A native of Poulpeasty, Sharon set up A C Pure six years ago having previously owned Toni and Guy in Waterford.
'I'm so proud to have reached the UK & Ireland Final of such a prestigious competition. I've always had a huge passion for hair and I am very excited about taking part and competing against the best hairdressers in the country at the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final in September', said Sharon.
