And the winners of the GL Awards Ireland 2019 are…

The Crème de la Crème of Irish Extensionists are crowned….

On Sunday 22nd September, in The Morrison Hotel in Dublin, we held hosted the third GL Awards Ireland! With hundreds of outstanding entries submitted for the awards, finalists from all over the country attended the stylish ceremony.

Guests sipped fizz on arrival and enjoyed a sumptuous three-course dinner, while Xpose’s Glenda Gilson was the host and MC for the evening.


Our GL Lovelys came to support our event, bringing glitz and glamour with them…Here are a few of their looks from the night.;

Judging the awards was no mean feat and tasked with the job were GL Lovley and model Holly Carpenter,  IMAGE Magazine Beauty Editor Holly O’Neill, Irish Tatler Online Editor Amy Heffernan, Creative Head Ireland Editor Anna Samson, Fringe Magazine Editor Tara Corristine and previous Great Lengths Trophy – Extension Excellence winner, Valerie Patterson.

The stakes were high as this year the prizes were bigger and better than ever before!  Each winner received a trophy & certificate as well as a trip to Rome to visit the Great Lengths production factory in Rome in 2020 with a stay in 5* accommodation for two!

Riff Shop kicked off the music on the night ensuring the dance floor filled up fast. Model, DJ and Great Lengths VIP January Russell then took to the decks to finish off the night with a funky set.

A raffle on the night raised much needed funds for Variety Ireland, a small children’s charity run by volunteers. With a donation of €600 to our charity, The Little Princess Trust, from the proceeds of ticket sales.

We were beyond thrilled to host the awards in Ireland again – there are so many talented stylists  and we loved having the chance to reward them. Past entries and winners have blown us away and this year was no exception. We congratulate all of the winners of the 2019/20 Great Lengths Ireland Awards and we hope that they go on to reap the business benefits that this accolade will hopefully bring them.
