Academy Salons’ Annual Awards 2018!

We recently held our Academy Salons’ 2018 Awards in February at the impressive Mercedes-Benz World to acknowledge our team of hair stylists and beauty therapists across our five salons for their creative excellence and customer service.


Hosted by Errol Douglas, one of the most influential hairdressers in the world, the event brought together the entire Academy Salons team and their partners for a night of food, dancing and celebration of success. It was our biggest awards yet!

The annual event, which began just a couple of years ago in a small, local restaurant with a few creative team members, is just one example of how much we have grown and continue to build a team of amazing, diverse and skilled individuals.

“Our talented team mean we are now able to offer an impressive range of beauty services in two salon locations, Weybridge and Cobham!” – Leanne, Head of Beauty.

“From lashes to tanning, facials and massages, we continue to grow and support the team to develop their skills and excellence!”

Awards were presented by owners Franco Capozzi and Salv Mulé alongside our host and partners who attended including: Balmain, Salon Spy, L’Oréal, Alterna, StrategiQ and Jools PR.

“We want to thank everyone involved including our amazing managers, and we feel honoured to have been able to recognise individual team members for their dedication and work ethic. This couldn’t have been done without all of your hard work that you guys do every day,” expressed Salv in gratitude near the closing of the event.
