Medusa Hairdressing in Southsea has been named as a finalist in the Salon of the Year 2 category, sponsored by L’Oréal Professionnel, at the British Hairdressing Business Awards, hosted by Hairdressers Journal International.
The awards, which are now in their 19th year, seek to find and celebrate the very best salon businesses in the country – an industry which contributes an estimated £7bn to the British economy and one which employs more than 300,000 people.
With 17 categories celebrating all aspects of the business side of hair, the awards are a proven platform for raising a salon’s profile. Even finalising in one of the prestigious categories marks a business out as one of the finest providers in the country; a win catapults them to the very top, providing unrivalled recognition that they are at the pinnacle of their profession and raising their profile to give an edge over competitors.
The Salon of the Year 2 category seeks to recognise single salons with an annual turnover of less than £350k who are judged to have a forward-thinking and profitable business, inspiring marketing, strong customer relations and an engaged and inspiring team in place.
Says HJ’s Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr,
Promoting professionalism, innovation and excellence, the British Hairdressing Business Awards recognise those individuals and teams who work tirelessly to raise the profile and stature of this industry, and make it one of which we can all be proud.
This category is all about celebrating those smaller salons that are out there making a massive difference. Whether they’re independent or part of a group, they’ve got a proven track record and the happy clients to prove it. They have a solid business plan, great customer care and a solid team in place to support them. In short, it’s about best-in-class behavior that gets results.
Art Director Belinda Cleary comments,
We’re delighted to be named as finalists at these prestigious awards and have the whole team to thank for getting us here. We strive to provide the best salon experience possible and this spot on the shortlist shows that we’re getting that right, with the results to prove it.
The awards take place in London on Monday 11th September.
