The ceremony, which was held at the Europa Hotel on Sunday, July 3, recognised the top hairdressers, salons, spas and beauticians from across Northern Ireland.

Awards were up for grabs in a number of categories including a winner from each county as well as a Best of Belfast and the Overall Northern Ireland winner.

Elizabeth Dollin opened Elizabeth Ann Hair in August 2013 after a successful period working as a mobile hairdresser. The following year, she expanded the services the salon offered to include tanning, beauty treatments and nails.

Along with her husband, they opened a unit at the rear of the salon called Venice tanning and supplements. This expansion enabled them to offer clients a range of services including health nutrition plans, sport supplements and sunbeds.

Speaking after winning the awards, Elizabeth said: “I’m very happy to have won the awards. I pride myself on business and our successful team who have been with us through training and qualifying.

“The team all get along really well and we always look forward to the team building days and nights.

“We offer high standards of hairdressing at affordable prices. We have an ever expanding clientele, who come from all over. I would like to thank them for their loyalty.”
