Winners announced - SalonBusiness.co.uk
Nearly 250 guests donned their best outfits on Monday and headed to Madison rooftop bar in St Paul’s, London in the name of Salon Business Awards 2016.
Talented hairdressers, members of the press, PRs and brand managers were among them as they all arrived ready to witness the unveiling of the winners.
“There were some incredible entries to choose from, but after hours of deliberation our judges decided on the deserving winners across our 12 categories,” said Salon Business Publishing Editor Jo Charlton, who presented the awards.
#SBAwards selfies flooded social networks and our dedicated TV set, while guests waited in suspense of the award announcements. There were also delicious canapes and champagne, with networking number one on the agenda.
Then it was time for the announcements and the top accolades of Ultimate Large Salon and Small to Medium salon went to Gatsby & Miller and The Hair Shack respectively, creating the perfect finale to the announcement of the awards.
Once all the winners were named, it was time to celebrate each and every finalist and winner. DJ and saxophonist Brendan Mills hit the decks, while bite size fish and chips, braised beef and button masala kept hunger levels at bay, leaving happy hairdressers to hit the dance floor.
It was all made possible thanks to our sponsors Remi Cachet, TIGI, Paul Mitchell, Revlon Professional, Salon Genius and OWAY, who also contributed to our exclusive goody bags.
