THE Avanti Hair Team in Westfield Street, St Helens, were the big winners at the recent Cheshire Hairdressing Championship.
Salon owner John Beirne scooped first place in the fantasy section, while stylist Debbie Kelly came first in the mens cut and blow.
Mandy Davies took first spot in the mens clipper cut.
In total the Avanti team claimed nine prize, including a bumper five first places. Mr Beirne said: “It was a great achievement, our junior, Brian Povey, who has been with us for three months, came second.
“We love competing, it gives us fresh ideas and teaches perfection in styling but it does take a lot of hard work, which has paid off.
“As fashion changes, we keep up with the trends and latest looks.”
