Salon Business Awards 2018 Grand Final

The Grand Final of the Salon Business Awards 2018 went off with a bang as nearly 300 guests filled The Mondrian’s exclusive rooftop bar on Monday night.

Guests arrived to the decadent Rumpus Room, with a view across London’s skyline, ready to see who would be taking home the 15 awards up for grabs.

By the end of the evening there were 14 ecstatic salon teams, one ecstatic individual and a room full of hugely talented hairdressers who got to celebrate making it through to the finals of the Salon Business Awards 2018. 

Salon Business Awards Founder and host Joanne Charlton said: “This was the fifth year of the awards and it was the biggest and best yet – fine wine, delicious canapés, an amazing view and most importantly a crowd full of hugely talented hairdressers.”

The Grand Final followed months of activity including hundreds of hairdressers pitting themselves against their peers, a #SBAwards buzz across various social media channels and shed loads of organising behind the scenes at Salon Business HQ.

It paid off too as guests, made up of Salon Business Awards finalists, brand owners, PRs, members of the press and our esteemed judge and co-presenter Errol Douglas, got to watch the sun go down while celebrating their successes, networking with many taking home an award.

Each and every one of the winners showed exceptional examples across a host of areas from salon design, to eco-friendly initiatives, creativity and business acumen.

It was Aesthetics and Q Hair & Beauty that scooped the top accolades of Ultimate Sm to Med Salon and Ultimate Large Salon respectively. 

Now each of the winners has the opportunity to boost their successes even further through the PR opportunities afforded – Salon Business will be featuring each of the winners over the coming year, while each of the winners will receive advice on how to PR their win across the board. 

Joanne adds: “Each of the winners worked really hard to get where they were and they were all hugely deserving. The celebrations after the awards were pumping with the entertainment provided by Brendan Mills on the saxophone as the sun went down. 

“We want to thank everyone who came and helped make the event what it was and we hope to see the winners making the most of their wins over the coming months.”

Salon Business would like to thank our esteemed panel of industry professionals who judged the awards, including all of our sponsors OWAY, Paul Mitchell, Remi Cachet, Viviscal Professional, Joico,Neäl & Wølf and iSalon.
