Ballymena barber shop, The Wellington Barber, were finalists at the NI Hair and Beauty Awards which was held recently in Belfast. It’s great to see small Ballymena businesses getting recognised for putting lots of effort & hard work into constantly improving the service and products they offer their customers.

The Wellington Barber was one of 7 finalists in the Best Barber Shop category from all across Northern Ireland having been selected by public nomination. This is a great achievement for a very young business – only opened 7 months ago, but Stephen Browne and the team have been building their reputation as a place where you get a great haircut, beard trim or shave while at the same time having a bit of banter!

So for the team from this Ballymena barber shop it was a trip to the Europa Hotel in Belfast to join lots of other barbers, hairdressers, nail technicians, beauty therapists and spa owners from all over the province as the awards were handed out. Attending the night was Suzanne Jackson, the well known fashion blogger and the charity partner was the ‘Make A Wish’ charity.

Meanwhile the party’s over and it’s back to work in Ballymena for The Wellington Barber team. They’re now excited about the next event they’re running on 18th October 2015 – a seminar in the shop on Wellington Street taken by Hairdressers Journal ‘Barber of the Year 2013’ – Darryn Pitman. Tickets are £25 and it’s open to any barbers, hairdressers or anyone who is interested in this event. If you’re interested in this you can get in touch with the guys on their Facebook page here or their website here.
