The SALONGENIUS Awards 2016 were to recognise and support the hard work, achievements and initiatives of their customers in the hair and beauty industry. This is the first year SALONGENIUS have had the awards; they had some amazing applications and really enjoyed reading about their customers and hearing all about their salons.
The categories were for the Front of House Team of the Year, Manager of the Year, Retail Salon of the Year and Salon of the Year. There was £500 up for grabs for Salon of the Year and £250 for the other categories.
After lots of deliberation SALONGENIUS announced the winners of its four categories:
Salon of the Year: Evolve Hairdressing, York
This application was so beautifully presented, obviously a lot of time and effort had gone into putting the application together – if the same amount of effort goes into looking after your clients and business the salon must be a wonderful place to be. You can clearly see the salon has an amazing business, they are also utilising the SALONGENIUS system to the full. Well done to a fantastic team and over all our Salon of the Year!
Front of House Team of the Year: Toni&Guy, Shoreditch
What stood out for us was your incredible percentage of customers who are loyalty card holders! The Front of House team are clearly utilising the SALONGENIUS system to the businesses benefit! Congratulations – keep up the good work!
Manager of the Year: Toni&Guy, Canary Wharf
Claire is clearly a very dedicated and passionate Salon Manager and this can be seen in all aspects of the business. The team are so complimentary about Claire and she obviously looks after the salon and the team impeccably.
Retail Salon of the Year: Toni&Guy, Canary Wharf
We were so impressed with your pop-up stands and the turnover these events generate. The salon has a really strong initiative system for the staff to keep the team motivated. The salon training and support each member of the team receives is clearly working!
Sian Barnes, SALONGENIUS Sales Manager, said,
As part of the awards prize giving we visited each of our winner’s salons to present them with their trophies and their prize money. We had such a good time visiting our clients and seeing the salons! We had a wonderful time at Toni&Guy Canary Wharf meeting Claire to give her the Manager of the Year and the salon’s Retail Salon of the Year awards.
Claire gave us a tour around the salon which included the beauty area and the secluded backwash area with their ‘signature lemongrass scent.’ Their retail area was very impressive and it was clear to see why they are so good at retailing their products, as the shelves were being constantly updated and restocked. We talked to the staff about using SALONGENIUS for their stock control – needless to say they were utilising the system to the max!
