Ballymena Business Barber of the Year

Wellington Barber Nominated for Barber of the Year

From the success of the English, Welsh and Scottish Hair & Beauty Awards, Oceanic Creative decided last year to launch their awards in Northern Ireland. They say:

Ballymena Business Barber of the YearThe glitzy event endeavours to show appreciation for those in the beauty industry that leave us looking and feeling fantastic; from salons to the talented individuals who work within them. It’s time to acknowledge that they really do help to make the world a more beautiful place to live in!

Whether it’s a hair stylist that’s transformed your barnet from dull to dazzling, a beautician that’s made you look and feel like a movie star, a salon that consistently provides an excellent environment, a talented newcomer to the industry or indeed somebody that’s dedicated their entire life to it – the Awards provide a platform to thank those in the beauty industry, letting them know that their good work doesn’t go un-noticed.

Ballymena Business Barber of the YearThe Wellington Barber opened in February 2015 on Wellington Street in Ballymena. The Wellington Barber is a modern beacon of traditional barbershop values in a landscape of mens hairdressers based in the town of Ballymena.

Founded by Stephen Browne, the shop carries an unwavering commitment to the original values of male grooming. Stephen is a state registered graduate barber with the hair council and a member of the British Master Barbers alliance who believes in ongoing barbering education for himself and for all the barbers in his shop. The Wellington Barber can be found on The Good Barbershop Guide website. Quality and execution coupled with customer service form the foundation of every client interaction no matter what service is undertaken. Sit down for a professional haircut in friendly surroundings. Drop by for that quick trim to keep things sharp… or lose yourself in a traditional hot towel shave. (Source)
