Testimonials

Just some of the amazing feedback from our Salon Awards events

The in-depth entry form gives the Salon Awards complete credibility

“This is the 2nd year of entering these Awards. I was enthused to be involved once I saw the calibre of the Judges and the in depth entry form, which, in my view, gives complete credibility.

It’s hard to describe what the elation to winning actually feels like, but to gain recognition within our industry, bond our team even closer & confirm to clients that we are dedicated is paramount - the Awards tick all of these boxes. The Award is the icing on the cake! We are still celebrating!! See you all next year!”

"if you're thinking about entering - just do it"

"Yet again another fantastic year at the salon awards. Thanks so much to all the guys behind the scenes to make such an amazing event possible. The salon is still on an absolute high after winning. This award is such a huge personal achievement and is so nice to finally get some recognition for all the hard work and sacrifices put into my career. If you're thinking about entering next year I couldn’t advise you more to do so. It creates such a buzz in the salon and is such a great talking point with clients and on social media, not to mention the togetherness it generated thought your salon team. Can’t wait for next year!"

"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.”

"A great platform for appreciation"

"SeventyFour Hair entered the Hampshire Salon Awards as it a great platform to show appreciation to our team and acknowledge what people in the industry do on a day to day basis. Working in a small independent salon means we don't mix very often with others in the industry and this is a great night to network and relax with those who share the same passion as we do. It's a fantastic night whether you win or not!"
