Last month, we announced that our Cobham salon had been shortlisted for the Retail Salon of the Year award at the prestigious Hairdressers’ Journal British Hairdressing Business Awards. The team attended the glamorous ceremony at London’s Park Plaza on Monday 17th September, and were thrilled to be named as winners!
Hosted by TV personality Vernon Kay, the evening of salon celebration attracted some of the biggest names and talent in UK hairdressing. The competition was incredibly fierce, with our Cobham salon up against some well respected and recognised salons. However, the judges said our creative initiatives, business growth and commitment to staff incentive schemes made us a deserving winner.
Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of the British Hairdressing Business Awards said: “Huge congratulations to Academy Salons on being named Retail Salon of the Year. They are a fantastic ambassador for the industry with skills and vision that make them the perfect winner.”
Salv Mulé, director of Academy Salons, said:
“We’ve been chasing this award for three years, so it feels fantastic to have won it this year, especially given the strength of the competition. I’d really like to thank our incredible team at Cobham for all their hard work; this wouldn’t have been possible without them.”
Our Cobham team are no strangers to winning awards. Last June, they snapped up the award for Best Retail Salon at the Salon Business Awards. So, if you want a haircut from our award-winning Cobham team, why not book an appointment today?
