A Dublin based hairdresser has been awarded one of the highest hairdressing accolades, taking home a silver medal in a prestigious hairdressing competition.
Romario Silva from Blend Beauty Artisans on Capel Street was awarded the Ireland Silver in the Colour Specialist Category at the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final 2020.
Despite the challenging climate in 2020, Romario went the extra mile to enter the competition and made it through several stages to finally be crowned a worthy winner. The competition began with more than 1,000 photographic entries on Instagram.
Winning an award in the Colour Specialist category demonstrates the ability to create beautiful, multi-tonal, natural looking balayage, making them a true expert in exceptional colour work.
Romario competed against some of the most talented and creative hairdressers to take home the Wella Professionals Ireland TrendVision Award 2020 Silver in the Colour Specialist category.
Romario’s prize will include a Wella education package and a trophy.
Allison Hargreaves, National Education Operations and Events Manager UK & Ireland, Coty Professional Beauty, said: “TrendVision is one of the most prestigious competitions in the hairdressing industry and our winners should be incredibly proud of their achievement.
“This truly does recognise the best hairdressers in the country and the winners have demonstrated an extremely high level of expertise to get to this stage.
“Winning this competition requires a very high standard of technical ability and creativity, and recognises pure talent.”
