Bellissimo Wins Big for Limerick at Trendvision Awards 2018

There was great excitement last Monday as five Bellissimo stylists woke at the crack of dawn to make their way to the Capital to take to the international stage for the Trendvision Awards 2018 in Dublin. After months of hard work for stylists Lauren, Breda, Ali, John and Aileen, it was finally time to show the hair industry what Limerick brings to the table. The five stylists were named among a select few as finalists after thousands around the country entered the initial photographic round.

A busload of staff and family left from the salon later that afternoon to lend their support, and they weren’t disappointed. Junior Stylist Aileen secured a win in her category Creative Vision. Her look was inspired by a recent trip to South Africa, where she was excited by the freedom of the street style in Johannesburg. With a tip to her electric personality, she presented to the judges a 3D mood board which was designed in the layout of an atom.

Aileen began her career in Bellissimo just 2 years ago. In a first for Bellissimo, Aileen runs a column as a makeup artist while also training to be a stylist. Her unique style and considerable talent have led to a very promising future for the young trainee stylist.

Hair Salon Manager Jenny commented “the team is just evolving more and more every year. As a homegrown Limerick business, we are so proud to be recognised by the major faces of the Irish Hairdressing Industry. Last year Donnchadh made it to the London finals, to repeat that success a second year running is just a dream come true! I’m so proud of all the staff who took part, as well as their models who represented us so professionally ”

Aileen will fly to London in October after the Trendvision Awards 2018 to represent Bellissimo on the world stage.
