Spirits are high at an East London Hair Salon after being selected as a finalist in the 2013 English Hair and Beauty Awards for the second year in a row. Silk Trends Afro & European Hair Design based in Chingford East London has been selected as one of the top five finalists for the prized title of Hair Salon of the Year London, and salon owner Ingrid Farrell and her team are excited to say the least.
Ingrid, who was selected as a finalist last year in the Women’s Stylist of the Year category, could not express strongly enough how pleased she is about the salon being nominated again,
Last year we were in the top 13 which was great, but this year I cannot believe that we're in the top 5! It's a great honour in itself to be selected, but to be selected 2 years in a row, and in the top 5 is a huge, huge achievement. The competition first stage is by public vote, and it's a wonderful feeling knowing that our clients voted for us, and think so highly of us and are so loyal. This nomination is proof that all our hard work is paying off and that Silk Trends isn't just another conventional East London salon.
The English Hair and Beauty Awards is a prestigious annual event that pays homage to the professionals that work in the hair and beauty industry. The ceremony gives thanks and recognition to those who work exceptionally hard and promote high standards in the industry. Silk Trends will go up against hair heavyweights and last year's winners Headmasters Mayfair.
Being nominated last year was an unbelievable experience and we had an amazing time attending the ceremony. We have all our fingers and toes crossed for winning the big prize, and I think I will be speechless on hearing our name called out as winner of the Hair Salon of the Year London 2013.
The awards are sponsored by Fake Bake, and this year’s charity partner will be the Make a Wish Foundation, which aims to make children with life threatening illness' dreams come true. The foundation's patrons include Jude Law, Florence Welch and Amanda Holden.
The Silk Trends team will now have to wait patiently until 3rd March to find out if they have won, where they will be attending the glitzy event held at the Midland Hotel, Manchester and hoping to bring home the main prize to East London.
Good Luck from all at Good Salon Guide!!!
