A HEREFORD hair and beauty salon owner has been shortlisted for a top industry award, and will find out her fate next month.

Danielle Eacock, who runs Crush Hair Extensions in Maylord Shopping Centre, was recently recognised as a "gold technician" by hair extension firm LA Weave, and is also in the running to be named specialist of the year.

The UK Hair and Beauty Award winners will be revealed in March, with Miss Eacock nominated for the hair extensions specialist of the year accolade.

She said: "Being awarded a finalist title is a huge achievement in itself as 1,000 of people through out the UK apply for this title and it’s a very competitive category.

"Both awards will be taking pride of place in my salon known as Crush Hair Extensions and beauty salon when we’re able to reopen after the current lockdown."

Miss Eacock also has a haircare line that she has recently rebranded and taken online, while aiming to be more eco-friendly and sustainable.
