Bath’s David Maxwell Hairdressing has been named as one of the country’s top salons after being announced as a finalist for Salon of the Year in the HJ British Hairdressing Business Awards.
The team at the salon, which is well-known locally, now awaits the awards ceremony in September, to see if they have been crowned the overall category winner.
This category recognises a single salon with an annual turnover of less than £350,000 that is independently owned or a salon within a group.
David Maxwell Hairdressing, which employs a team of top stylists, impressed the judges thanks to their customer care, complaints procedure, promotional and marketing activity as well as staff engagement and training.
Commenting on the result, Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of the HJ British Hairdressing Business Awards, said: “To be named as a finalist highlights how exceptional this salon is.
“With hundreds of entries for each category and a panel of judges that excel at looking for the finer details, just to make the shortlist is an outstanding achievement.
“We wish them all the very best of luck for the awards night, which promises to be a spectacular evening for all.”
