It was an honour to be recognised. Winning the award gave me a whole new outlook on my work, my salon has been noticed and recognised as one of the best for extension work.”
Many of the award winners have gone on to work with the Great Lengths Head Office team on numerous collaborative opportunities including campaign shoots, PR and industry exhibitions, further raising their profile in the hair industry and also amongst potential clients.
