We are jumping about in celebration after being named finalist in the Best local Salon (Community) category of national hairdressing competition – the Most Wanted Awards.
Here’s what they had to say about us on their press release:
Thanks to an impressive display of skill, dedication and talent, Emma Hellier beat off stiff nationwide competition to secure a place at the Most Wanted Grand Final on Monday 6 September 2017, taking place at the historic London Guildhall and hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan.
Judged by influential names in hair, fashion, business and the media – including George Northwood, hairdresser to Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Vogue beauty editor Lauren Murdoch-Smith, and the founders of BeautyMART, Millie Kendall MBE and Anna-Marie Solowij – the Most Wanted Awards celebrate the outstanding individuals, teams and salons that make British hairdressing the best in the world.
Presented by leading industry magazine Creative HEAD, the Most Wanted Awards comprise 14 categories, each recognising excellence across a multitude of disciplines, from business acumen and customer service to creative skill and technical ability.
When the winners are announced on Monday 4 September, they will each be given the hairdressing industry’s greatest seal of approval – a Most Wanted Trophy. They will also enjoy an exclusive prize courtesy of their category sponsor and receive editorial coverage in Creative HEAD and its associated titles and websites, resulting in global exposure.
“I’ve been so impressed with this year’s entries,” commented Catherine Handcock, Publisher of Creative HEAD. “We have an exceptionally strong line-up of finalists who, together, demonstrate a wealth of skills, innovation and forward-thinking that is very exciting to see. All our finalists are brilliant at what they do
– now let’s look forward to the Grand Final to discover the overall winners.”
