BRIDAL hairdresser Kelly Hanks has won a national competition for her work making brides around the country look their best on their big day.
Kelly was runner-up in the Wedding Industry Awards ‘wedding hairdresser of the year’ award last year - but this time she’s gone from bridesmaid to bride, having bagged the top prize.
The award, voted for by clients, saw Kelly win the regional final for the second year running and beat seven other finalists to the top prize.
Kelly, who called the award a ‘massive achievement’, has been a hair stylist for 25 years and setting up her own business in 2011.
Initially a mobile hairdresser, she has since set up a base at her home in Cornfall Place, Barnsley but still travels the country to see clients.
