The IMAGE Business of Beauty 2022 winners are…

And the winners are…

After a three-year absence of in-person events, we were delighted to welcome back our IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards 2022 this weekend, Ireland’s biggest, glittery-est, most stylish, adrenaline-charged awards. Honouring the very best in Irish hair and beauty, these awards celebrate the crème de la crème of the industry; the people we trust with helping us transform into the shiniest, most glamorous versions of ourselves on a daily basis.

As you know, winners were decided 100% by public vote and almost half a million votes flooded in over the past five weeks – each one telling us who you think really deserved to win one of Ireland’s Hair and Beauty Oscars. Needless to say, the competition was very close. Some categories came down to just a matter of two or three votes… but, the results are in. Scroll down to see the winners in the gallery below.
