Junior Stylist with the Sean Taaffe Group, Sandra O’Sullivan, from Milltown, County Kerry, won 2nd place in the ALFAPARF ‘Fantastic Junior’ Category at the annual Hairdressing Awards 2014 – held at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel, Dublin.
Sandra joined the Sean Taaffe Group over 16 months ago, and this was the first competition she ever entered, so it was extra special to win. The judges were impressed with both her technical knowledge and expertise in the highly competitive ‘Colour, Cut and Blow-dry’ category.
Sandra was the only entrant from the Sean Taaffe Group into the hairdressing categories in the competition this year. Previously the Sean Taaffe Group have won numerous awards including the overall award of ALFAPARF Fantastic Salon of the Year 2012, 1st place in Fantasy 2012 (by Marta Plechowska) and Sean Taaffe won the highest individual category, and the ALFAPARF Fantastic Hairdresser of the Year in 2013.
Speaking on Sandra’s win, Sean Taaffe, salon group owner, said,
Many congratulations to Sandra, who really wowed the judges at the ALFAPARF awards. As a Group we decided to only enter one category this year, so it was particularly rewarding to win 2nd place. Sandra is based in our Killarney salon, so drop in and make an appointment and experience her award-winning creativity for yourself.
