Hellawell was born in Keighley, West Riding of Yorkshire. He and his brother John, who also played football professionally, attended St Bede's Grammar School in Bradford. Hellawell signed for Queens Park Rangers in August 1955 from Salts, a small non-League club from Saltaire, and made his debut in the home match against Exeter City on 25 February 1956. He was selected to play for the Third Division South representative team against the Northern Section in April 1957. He played 45 games in the Football League for Rangers before being transferred to Birmingham City in 1957.
While with Birmingham he played in the 1961 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup Final, won the League Cup in 1963, and won his two full caps for England, against France and Northern Ireland in 1962. After eight years at Birmingham he went on to play league football for Sunderland, Huddersfield Town and Peterborough United and non-league football for Bromsgrove Rovers.
