A hair salon which specialises in blonde hair has won a coveted award.

Lockwood-based Habitat Hair Studio, run by talented stylist Ella-Jade O’Brien, received well-deserved recognition at the prestigious National Hair and Beauty Awards.

In the face of tough competition, Ella was shortlisted for three coveted awards, ultimately securing a second place in the ‘Best for Blondes in Yorkshire and the Humber.’

The National Hair and Beauty Awards, known for celebrating excellence and innovation in the hair and beauty industry, attract top professionals from across the country.

Ella’s exceptional skills and dedication have now placed her firmly in the spotlight, as she was chosen as one of the standout contenders in multiple categories.

Their commitment to staying at the forefront of hair trends, combined with unparalleled talent and meticulous attention to detail, has set the studio apart as a rising salon in the field.

Ella (above) said: “It is an incredible honour to be recognised among such talented individuals in the hair and beauty industry.
