Midleton Hairdressers Trim Opposition

By Claire O’Donoghue


The team at Oxygen Hair Design in Midleton have good reason to be doubly pleased with themselves. Firstly, on April 21 they celebrated a highly successful 10 years in business. Over the 10 years they have expanded from a team of three (Proprietor, Alwyn Rea and two staff members Christina Kelly and Shirley Murphy) to ten, with two in-house makeup artists to give their customers the full va-va voom experience. Secondly, they assured their future in the business in true style on the same weekend by sailing through to the finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Awards and, on Sunday, April 22, the entire team will head to Dublin to compete in the semi-finals at the RDS.
Months of training, exams and hard work since becoming L’Oréal Colour Specialist Salon in 2014 got them through a head to head heat with salons from all over the Republic, to reach the semi-finals at the weekend. The semi-final competition involved creating “a truly inspirational, contemporary colour, complemented by trend-driven styling and finish”. Salon proprietor, Alwyn Rea said “we enjoyed every minute of all the long hours, and it was well worth it given the result which we achieved on our model Suzy’s hair”. The judging panel was made up of British Hairdresser of the Year, Sally Brooks, multi award winning Coiffeur Charlotte Mensah, celebrity hairdressers Jamie Stevens and Adam Reed, as well as hairdressing icons Charles Worthington and Errol Douglas MBE. The very best in the business selected Oxygen Hair Design’s efforts as completely fitting the high standards of “exceptionally executed and perfectly precise work” for which they were looking.
The Grand Finals take place back in the RDS on July 2. The team will be hard at work to completely change the entire look of their model’s colour, clothing and style.
We wish the very best of luck to the team and congratulate them on all their hard work in getting this far. Doesn’t a hair makeover by the experts at Oxygen Hair Design seem like just what you need heading into the summer? Give them a call on 021 4634886 to book an appointment for the new you!
