Creative Oceanic are delighted to announce the HAIR finalists of The 6th Northern Ireland Hair and Beauty Awards 2020, sponsored by Phorest.

The Northern Ireland Hair and Beauty Awards are back once again for an exclusive celebration of the hair and beauty gurus that operate in the country. Following the overwhelming response from the public with hundreds of nominations received, the full list with finalists has now been revealed.

The glamorous ceremony will take place on Sunday, June 21 at The Crowne Plaza Hotel Belfast and will welcome meritorious contenders who promote excellence within the salon with their talent and dedication to be the best.

The glitzy awards seek to acknowledge and honour the tireless individuals, teams and salons, whose sole aim is to provide their customers with impeccable services and treatments, following the latest trends.

Top hairstylists, colour technicians and barbers amongst others will gather to celebrate their achievements and efforts that put in daily to leave their customers with the best of impressions.

A Spokesperson for The Northern Ireland Hair and Beauty Awards 2020, said: These Awards aim to showcase those who have shown great commitment, professionalism, creativity and care for the client.

“The Awards celebrate and remark the strong presence, profitability and contributions of the hair and beauty industry to the national revenue. We aim to provide a platform to thank and appreciate the work of excellent professionals who often don’t get the recognition they deserve.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our guests and delivering another enjoyable event. We wish all the finalists the best of luck.”
