After successfully delivering the Scottish, Welsh and English Hairdressing and Beauty Awards, The Europa Hotel in Belfast will play host to the inaugural Northern Ireland Hair and Beauty Awards which will take place on Sunday September 13.

Thousands of nominations flooded in from across the country in a race to be crowned the best in the hair and beauty industry.

The glitzy event endeavours to show appreciation for those in the beauty industry that leave us looking and feeling fantastic; from salons to the talented individuals who work within them. These Awards provide a platform to thank those in the beauty industry, letting them know that their good work doesn’t go un-noticed. The event promises to be as glam as the individuals and salons it’s acknowledging!

The glamorous night promises to be the biggest in the Hair and Beauty calendar, with nineteen accolades including Best Barbers, Hair Salon of the Year, Beauty Salon of the Year and many more.

As well as the awards, the evening will be raising awareness and funds for the official charity partner, Make A Wish Foundation.

Irfan Younis of event organisers Creative Oceanic commented “We have had a fantastic response from the public who voted in their thousands to ensure their favourite hair and beauty guru’s made the shortlist. The response from Northern Ireland has been amazing considering it is the first year of the awards. We would like to wish all the finalists the best of luck and we look forward to delivering yet another great event.”
