Commenting on the salon success at TrendVision, Patrick said: “What an amazing achievement from our team to have two stylists from our Salon on stage in London at the TrendVision finals! Both entries were fantastic, and we are so so proud of both Elaine and Florrie. The moment Elaine from Patrick Gildea Hairdressing was announced as the winner, we jumped to our feet and were bursting with pride in bringing this title back to Ireland. We have been working on attaining this award for 10 years now and to take such a prestigious award home to Donegal is just incredible. Winning an award in the Colour Artist category demonstrates the ability to create truly personalised cut and colour transformation, and a completely tailored look to suit the individual.  

“Elaine’s talent, dedication, and passion are something that every young apprentice hairdresser should aspire to. We are so honoured to be a TrendVision winning salon and couldn’t be any prouder of our salon team.”

Speaking about the success Elaine commented: “We were blown away by the support from everyone. To come home with a trophy to our team was one of the most amazing experiences. Being on the stage at TrendVision and Winning has been a dream I have had for many years and I’ve always said – one day I’ll get there! I am truly overwhelmed by all the messages of congratulations and to all my salon teammates for travelling to support me and to my model Jocelyn for being a dream to work with. I would like to thank Patrick for always believing in me and supporting me in this wonderful salon.”
