Last Monday, the atmosphere was electric and the anticipation was palpable as the decadent Sea Containers London played host to the 2019 Salon Business Awards. The highly-regarded industry event brought together the finest salons from across the country, as they vied for their place on the podium and to be crowned as the best in class within their respective categories.
“Each of you in this room have put in hard work, grit and dedication into creating successful businesses. You’ve then opened up your salons to the scrutiny of our judges and it’s paid off. You are all winners, you in this room are the best in the UK.” – Joanne Charlton, Salon Business Publishing Editor
Once again, the Academy Salons team were in attendance. Our Claygate branch was recognised for its efforts with a place as a finalist in the Best Salon Team category. Similarly, our Weybridge branch made it to the final selection of nominees for Best Local Salon category. The competition was incredibly fierce, but we were delighted to see our Weybridge branch successfully take home the top prize for Ultimate Large Salon.
A testament to its passion for ensuring each and every one of its customers goes home happy with their cut or treatment, this award cemented Academy Salons Weybridge position as one of the finest salons in the country. We couldn’t be prouder of the team.
And the celebrations didn’t stop there. Prior to the award announcement, our co-founder and director Salv Mulé had to slip away from the event following the news his wife had gone into labour. Congratulations on welcoming your beautiful baby daughter into the world, Salv!
Of the award win, Salv said: “We honestly didn’t think we would win this award. All of the finalists were companies we look up to, so getting the award really was a dream come true moment. We are 100% focused on improving our services and take criticism to help us learn and improve.”
