We are super-uber-mega proud that our team has reached a fourth UK Hair Industry Awards’ Grand Final in just three months!
Every industry has its awards season and for the hairdressing industry that time is now.
At the start of June we announced that we had won the Southern Region Award at the Grand Finals of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy, coming an incredible 3rd overall in the UK. It’s a competition that has over 5,000 entries nationwide, including representation from all the top salons. That’s a fantastic achievement for any salon, especially for Simon Webster Hair (SWH); an independent, family-run business that only opened their doors five years ago. What was even more incredible was that this was our 3rd grand final running. Could it get any better? Well, maybe…
We’re thrilled to have reached the final in three more of the industry’s most prestigious awards: the Salon Business Awards, Creative Head ‘Most Wanted’ Awards and the British Hairdressing Business Awards.
The Salon Business Awards final takes place on 26th June and we are competing in the category of Creative Salon, with a photographic entry of a style and colour inspired by SWH Team’s Specialist Colourist, Patrick Matthews’ visit to Table Mountain earlier in the year. He used the same Brighton model, Jade, that he won the UK Mizani Afro Styling Award for in 2015.
Creative Head is to the hairdressing industry what Vogue is to the world of fashion. In the autumn, we will hear whether they have won the Creative Head ‘Most Wanted’ Award for the Best Salon Team in the UK at arguably the industry’s most highly-respected ceremony. We’ve long-known that the SWH Team are an exceptionally talented family of stylists, colourists and hair artists – one of the best across the country – and this award would make it official.
Finally, the British Hairdressing Business Awards – the business Oscars of the hair world – grand final takes place on Monday 11th September. We are finalists in the Salon of the Year and Salon Team of the Year.
Once again, we thank all our supporters, clients and friends for your congratulations, support and belief. We’re very proud of the work that our team does, the relationships they build with each other, their clients and the difference they want to make to our industry and our community. We love them all!
