Hosted by Salon Awards Founder and Director Kate Jeffery who was accompanied by the evening’s entertainment who also co-hosted, popular comedian and radio host Glenn Moore.
Kate Jeffery, said,
The Sussex Salon awards have been pretty amazing. From the entry stage to the awards ceremony, the passion these hairdressers have for the industry they work in is really great to see. It reminded me why we created the awards in the first place which was to reward the talented salons and individuals and help them and their businesses to shine in the area they’re working in. From the judges and I, a huge congratulations to all the finalists and the winners.
