A Laois hair salon owned by a well-known Portlaoise man is a cut above the rest and has won its second prestigious award beating off stiff national competition.
The Hair House Salon in Rathdowney is owned and run by Portlaoise man Darren Farrell. The salon has won its second award for 'Business All Star One to Watch' at a presentation held in Croke Park during the week sponsored by 'All Ireland Business Foundation'.
Darren was delighted to win such a prestigious award for his salon.
"We were one of the two businesses to get this award out of 70 Businesses Nationwide and one of 90 Businesses who were up for awards out of 460 Businesses in all of Ireland.
"To say I am overwhelmed with this award is an understatement. Awards like this cannot be given without having a fantastic team behind them, Agnes and Teresa, and without our amazing clients that walk through our doors.
"To Derek, my partner, my family and friends, for all their support and help in making my dream come true, and for their continued support and encouragement in making The Hair House reach the highest possible standards, on behalf of our clients, and progress in improving The Hair House become the successful business it has achieved," he said.
