"the atmosphere was buzzing"
“Wow what a night we had at the Hampshire salon awards, the atmosphere was buzzing and the evening couldn’t have been organised any better. The food was great, everyone was so friendly and supportive of each other and our only complaint was that it went way to quick! To top it off we won Best Salon Team which was totally unexpected but the highlight of our salons history so far and an experience we will never forget! Thanks Hampshire Salon Awards and see you next year x.”
