HJI crown the winners of the British Hairdressing Business Awards
FG_AUTHORS: Who Can Cut It?
Last week’s Creative Head awards were all about the brightest boldest stars of hairdressing but the HJ’s British Hairdressing Business Awards celebrate those who may otherwise go unnoticed but are just as vital to the hairdressing industry.
The awards, in their 19th year, celebrate the “strategic thinking, business innovations and outstanding customer care that make the very best salons stand out from the crowd”.
All of which when coupled with the super talented stylists on show make for an all round excellent salon.
The event, hosted by comedian Rob Beckett and held at the Westminster Bridge Park Plaza, welcomed the best of the hair glitterati and they weren’t disappointed.
It was another night of celebration for Not Another Salon, who picked up the Salon Team of the Year award and the Marketing Award, just a week after being named the Best Salon Experience on the Creative Head Most Wanted List.
“These awards sum up what this industry is all about,” Mark Maloney, managing director of Hairdressers Journal told HJI.co.uk: “Tonight we honour the people who deliver for their customers day in and day out by being better managers, employees, marketers and striving to give the best possible experience.”
