A BOLD barber, crazy colourist, excellent extensionist and social media master in Dumfries are all in the running for top accolades.

Three local businessmen and women, based in the town, have been nominated for Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards (SHABA).

Jefferson Delima, of Jefferson’s Barbers, is in the running for best male barber Scotland.

The Philippines native studied hairdressing at Dumfries and Galloway College and worked in another salon, before setting up shop in November last year.

Excited to be nominated, he said: “I’m so glad that I was nominated. Since I opened my barbershop business is doing great.”

And two friends who operate under the same salon roof at One7Two in St Michaels Street are celebrating a double nomination.

Nicola McMinn, owner of Curl up Dye, is vying for the best colourist title and friend Carrie McFadzean, of Extend Hair Extensions, is hoping to win the best hair extensionist award.

Nicola said: “I am so excited to be in the nal. I have been hair- dressing for over nine years and I am now a Manic Panic brand ambassador.

“Our new shop, One7Two, has been open for three months now and it’s going from strength to strength.”

Carrie added: “I have never been nominated for an award before, so am very excited about being in the Scottish final.”

Meanwhile, Deborah Burns, creator of interactive Facebook blog Can I borrow Your Face (CIBYF), which lets woman in Dumfries and Galloway connect and share their best beauty secrets, has been nominated in the social media in influencers category.

She said: “I am super excited to be a finalist, CIBYF is a health and beauty hub that brings women together.

“This award is for every member in our group which just keeps growing.”

The four nominees will find out their fate at a glitzy award ceremony in Glasgow on September 16.
