Sligo-based hair studio, Salon 2 has been crowned Connacht Salon of the year at the Annual Schwarzkopf Professional Irish Business Awards recently held in the Shelbourne Hotel Dublin. Salon 2, located on Adelaide Street, is owned by Anthony Kilcoyne. The salon was also shortlisted in the categories of Editorial Salon of the Year and Customer Care Award. Salon 2 picked up the Connacht title in face of some very stiff competition. The awards, now in their seventh year, have grown into the industry’s premier accolades. “It is a great honour for us to win Connacht Salon of the Year and it is a credit to the dedicated team in our salon and the hard work they put in daily. We would like to thank all our invaluable customers who are instrumental in helping us achieve this award” said Anthony. Mind you, Anthony Kilcoyne and his team of stylists are no strangers to winning awards. Salon 2 is a five star hair salon as awarded by the Good Salon Guide and has a string of other prestigious hairdressing awards to its name. See our style gallery for all the photos of the event.
