Allure Hair & Beauty in Mayo was one of the big winners at this year’s IHF Championship Gala, held at the Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny. Allure’s Martha Galvin scooped IHF Irish Hairdresser of the Year, while the salon’s Tiegan Neary won IHF Irish Trainee Hairdresser of the Year. Paul Stafford and John Keegan were also named as IHF Icons. 

The night kicked off with a showcase from Samantha Byrne, 2019 IHF Irish Hairdresser of the Year, with a catwalk presentation of 12 models, alongside work from the 2022 Star Team. 

 There were 21 excited finalists waiting to see if they’d made the 2023 Star Team, with benefits including a range of experiences over the course of a year, such as education and training days with established names in the industry, worth more than €20,000.
