High Award for High Fashion Hair Stylist

Widely accredited Ennis hair salon Altamoda Hair by Bridget Haren has been awarded the “Best Bridal Image Award” at the Irish hair Photographic Awards.

The prestigious competition took place in the Guinness store house in Dublin last month. The competition recognized the crème de la crème of hair photography in Ireland. The winning image combined the outstanding efforts of many of Clare’s most creative talents in a gallant local effort.

The winning image portrayed Ennis lady and noted commercial model Esther Woods with the make-up being presented by Emma Troy from Emmaze beauty. Louise Brooks of Louise Brooks Photography in Ennis snapped the winning photograph while the hairstyle was innovatively designed by Bridget Haren of Altamoda Hair by Bridget Haren.

The team also made it to the top four of the DVD category. The DVD was produced and directed by Paul Corey with the hair once again fashioned by the Altamoda creative styling team.

Altamoda is the Italian translation for “high fashion”, and Bridget and her team certainly express an artistic and unique fashion edge through the medium of hair styling.

This award is another addition to the many other accolades and honours which have been accumulated by Haren and her amazing team over the past number of years.
