Christian Wiles Hairdressing Northampton receive yet more recognition as we are announced as a finalist in the highly acclaimed British Hairdressing Business Awards.
It is not the first time our Northampton salon have been been shortlisted as one of the best hairdressing businesses in the country at national awards, in fact, Christian Wiles are current title holders of The Male Grooming Salon of the Year Awards that is hosted by Hairdressers Journal.
The awards, which are now in their 19th year, seek to find and celebrate the very best salon businesses in the country – an industry which contributes an estimated £7bn to the British economy and one which employs more than 300,000 people.
With 17 categories celebrating all aspects of the business side of hair, the awards are a proven platform for raising a salon’s profile. Even finalising in one of the prestigious categories marks a business out as one of the finest providers in the country; a win catapults them to the very top, providing unrivalled recognition that they are at the pinnacle of their profession and raising their profile to give an edge over competitors.
The Male Grooming Salon of the Year category celebrates the booming men’s market, covering hairdressing and grooming services. Contributing more than £1bn to the British economy, it’s an enormous area of business interest, with more salons than ever catering specifically to gents.
Says HJ’s Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr: “Promoting professionalism, innovation and excellence, the British Hairdressing Business Awards recognise those individuals and teams who work tirelessly to raise the profile and stature of this industry, and make it one of which we can all be proud.
She adds: “Male grooming is enjoying a real boom period, but that means it can be harder than ever to stand out and be noticed. For businesses to do well and prove their point of difference, they have to be a cut above – which all of the finalists in this category really are.”
Salon owner Christian comments: “We take male grooming seriously, so we’re delighted to have been recognised in this competitive category. Between our marketing, our decor, our services and, of course, our team, we feel proud that we’re doing our male clients proud – with the results to prove it.”
The awards take place in London on Monday 11 September.
