Peter Mark's flagship salon in Limerick took home the top gong at the eponymous Colour Trophy Awards.

Stylists Sarah Gallagher and Krystal Murphy of the William Street branch were named overall winners at the glitzy ceremony last week at Dublin's Clayton Hotel. Hundreds of hairdressers from around the country flocked to the capital for the prestigious awards, which included a fashion production showcasing all of the nominees, as as well as a show, styled by the brand's creative team, in which Sarah Morrissey and Jessica Hayes strutted their stuff.

The winners were given the prestigious title thanks to sharp copper bob, so chosen for its cut and colour, and so striking was its look that one of my favourite overheard comments was, "You could cut glass with that fringe". 

Brendan Courtney hosted the event, while judges including celebrity hairdresser Michael Doyle, L'Oreal's Patricia Strachan and Terry and Calum Tierney of the UK-based Terence Paul salons.

Peter Mark CEO Peter O'Rourke said the awards are a "celebration of the talent and creativity which is the lifeblood of our business" and an opportunity to honour the ever-growing industry talent.
