Local salon, KAM Hair and Body Spa in Lossiemouth has been announced the winner of the Best Regional Salon (Scotland) at the Hair Awards and has also received the news they have finalised for the Female Fashion Look Collection category at the National Hairdressing Federation (NHF) Photographic Image of the Year 2019 Awards.
To enter the Hair Awards, the salon had to submit a written entry detailing five reasons why they are a truly exceptional salon, an explanation of their role within the community, and provide client testimonials. From the compiled entries, KAM was then announced as a finalist before being announced as the winner of the category at the awards ceremony held in London at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on the 16th September. The ceremony was a spectacular showcase of British Hairdressing, where hundreds of finalists came together for the announcement of the awards for an exclusive event.
To finalise for the NHF Photographic Image of the Year Awards, Karen, Owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa, was required to enter show-stopping imagery designed to inspire creativity within the industry. Judges then chose from professionals of all levels the best imagery to be shortlisted with Karen being one of three for the Female Fashion Look Collection category. The awards ceremony will be hosted at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Kings Cross, London on Sunday 17 November 2019 where Karen will find out if she has won the award.
Karen Thomson, Owner and Director of KAM Hair and Body Spa and current Scottish Hairdresser of the Year commented,
To win the Best Regional Salon (Scotland) in the Hair Awards was a fantastic achievement for our salon and we are thrilled to be flying the flag of excellence for Scotland and to have brought this trophy home to our salon! To have finalised for the NHF Photographic Image of the Year Awards is also a great achievement. We put so much work into our photographic imagery and for this to be recognised and to be announced as a finalist being up against other extremely talented hairdressers is incredible.
