Business of Beauty Awards: The Winners!

The winners were announced tonight, Sunday March 22, 2014 at the second annual IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards, in association with Beverly Hills Formula, at Dublin's DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. Recognising Ireland's best beauty therapists and hairdressers as well as the country's standout hair salons, beauty salons and skincare clinics, the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards, in association with Beverly Hills Formula, also acknowledges the world's leading hair and beauty brands.

The nominations for #imageBOB15 were put to you loyal readers back in early January, you then voted in your beauty-tastic droves for your favourite hair stylist, the best nail technician and much more. Now, after a night that can only be described as epic on all proportions - hosted by the always fabulous Darren Kennedy - we can now breathe a big sigh of relief and reveal the IMAGE Business of Beauty 2015 winners. Hurrah!
