New Ross hair stylist scoops Ladies Fashion Image Award
new ROSS hair stylist Niall Bennett has added to his collection of major national awards by winning the Best of the Best ladies fashion award at a major competition in the Mansion House in Dublin.
Niall, who has been running H2O Creative hair salon in the town for 16 years, was nominated for five awards: Best of the Best: Ladies Cut and Colour, Men's Fashion, Editorial and Ladies Fashion Image, which he won. He was also a finalist in the Women's Cut & Colour competition.
Niall worked on his entries over several months with clothes stylist Brian Lyng, from The Rower, County Kilkenny. Having won the Best Men's Fashion Image award in the same competition last year, the talented hair stylist was hoping to add the ladies award to his list of achievements this year and he did so in style.
Niall worked with top young designer, Carla Barden, New Ross based photographer Greg Janta and model Edwina Fogarty from Waterford, triumphing in the ladies fashion category over established, highly regarded hair salons from across the country. Niall represented Ireland at the world championships in the Royal Albert Hall last year and has been invited to represent Ireland in an international competition in Paris later this year.
