A HAIRSTYLIST from Kilmacanogue has been nominated for a prestigious award.

Linda Thornton from Lynda T Hairdressing in Kilmacanogue has been shortlisted for a GLammies by Great Lengths 2021 awards ceremony.

“I’m thrilled to have made the finals,” Linda Thornton said. “I am passionate about working with extensions and to be recognised alongside such creative stylists is a huge honour. I just hope I’ve impressed the judges enough to bring the trophy home to Lynda T Hairdressing.”

Linda is nominated in the Captivating Colour category and the Creative Innovation category. In addition to a GLammies trophy, winners in each of the sixteen categories will each receive tickets for a tour of the Great Lengths production factory in Rome.

“The GLammies by Great Lengths celebrate the very best extensionists in this amazing industry,” says Joscelin McCourt, CEO of HB Collective (the home of Great Lengths). “To be shortlisted for an award, nominees must demonstrate creativity and precision, as well as a talent for their craft, which sets them apart from the competition. Linda Thornton should feel incredibly proud to be recognised at this level.”
