Ellen Blackadder of The Sitting Room salon, Ballymena, was awarded first place in the ‘Creative Day Style’ category at the Northern Ireland Hairdressing Awards held last week in the Hilton Hotel, Belfast last week.

Earlier this year, Ellen was part of The Sitting Room team which travelled to New Orleans to support salon owner Julian Dalrymple at another major awards ceremony.

A striking photographic image of a stunning hairstyle created by Julian which had been captured by top Australian photographer, Andrew O’Toole, was awarded first place in the ‘One Shot Hair Awards’, staged by the globally recognised ‘Behind the Chair’ website and magazine.
