Winners of the Alfaparf Photographic Awards…
Im writing this and im still in shock!I always knew we could do it dont get me wrong its just the shock of doing it 1 year into business.
19 years the Award is around and never has a salon in less than 1 year open got through to the top 13 salons never mind won.
The hard work my team has put into the salon and the competiton has shone through.
They all stayed late after work,prepared outfits,training ,praticed non stop and it showed.
This particular award was pre judged so all the entries were sent to the Uk were the top pictures were chosen and then these were judged on the day in the Hilton by another 4 judges.
Novemeber Sunday 6th we headed off at 9am to the Hilton Hotel with bags of equipment,makeup,outfits,nerves and excitment.
Nikki was first up in her field ”Long Hair”, this was a tough category with it full to the max.The stylist all had 30 minutes to create their look.The hair has to be all down before they start ensuring everyone has the same chance.Did you see the finish result.
Nikki was robbed,this is what my Dad keeps saying[love the dads]
Next up was Christine in ”Trainee ” dont let that fool you the standard was so high you woud mistake it for Senior standard.I was so emotional for this category as Christine works so hard in the salon and she never complains ,i mean nothing is ever an issue shes incredible.
To say she done us all proud is an understatement.
Next up was Shauna in the ” Gents”,Shauna is our newest recruit so had only 6 weeks to prep and she also smashed it and has the competition bug now im so excited for this girl her talent is unreal.
Our Master Colour Specialist Emma was last to finish and it was the same model as our photgraphaphic entry ,so the time that went into achieving the perfect colour result here was months.
Rose gold isnt something you achieve easily and Emma is a perfectionist
and it showed in the end result.
The Day was amazing and the standard of work across Irish Hair salons is just unbelievable so well done to every single salon who entered.
The show Alfaparf put on was the best id ever seen and i just cant wait to be back next year to add more awards to Pelo
