We are sooooo excited to announce that we have been named one of the country’s most outstanding salons after securing not one, BUT TWO finalist nomination in Hairdresser Journal’s British Hairdressing Business Awards 2019.
Recognised for our outstanding marketing strategy, we are one of just six UK hairdressing companies in the running to win the Marketing Campaign of the Year award, sponsored by Phorest Salon Software - this category celebrates the best communicators in the hairdressing industry!
Our clear branding and marketing plan impressed a host of industry judges, with our entry standing out for its creative vision and seamless way of using both shop front, print and online platforms to drive sales and attract customers.
Connor Keppel, VP Marketing at Phorest Salon Software says: “Receiving a finalist place is a phenomenal feat. Marketing is not to be underestimated – it is absolutely core to the success of a business. Linton & Mac showcased how marketing can be incorporated into the heart of a company and then breed phenomenal engagement from the consumer.“
Capturing the attention of a host of industry judges with our all-round brilliance, we are again one of just six salons in the UK now in reach of winning the Salon of the Year award, sponsored by Salon Success. The category celebrates a single independent venture with an annual turnover of more than £350,000 that is excelling in all aspects of business.
Showing strength across the board, we stood out for our proven business growth, customer care and marketing strategy. Our in-house training policies and our individual eye for assessing team performance and policies on making improvements further set us apart from the competition.
Salon Success sponsors the Salon of the Year category. Zoe Vears, Director of Publicity says: “Receiving a finalist place is a phenomenal feat. Growing a business takes a great deal of strategic thought and intentionality to craft a culture that other people want to be a part of. Salon businesses are so relational, and this team excelled at connection with their team and interaction with customers.”
HJ’s British Hairdressing Business Awards, now in its 21st year, promote professionalism, innovation and excellence, while recognising those individuals and teams who work tirelessly to raise the profile of the hairdressing industry and make it vibrant and growing.
According to the National Hairdressers’ Federation Industry statistics for 2018, there are currently over 287,000 people work within the hairdressing, barbering and beauty industries in the UK, contributing over £7bn to the economy each year.
It’s an ever expanding industry too, with over a third of salons in 2018 (41%) noting that their turnover had increased from the previous year - and we are super proud to be a part of that.
do what you love - love what you do
Back in 2017 we shortlisted for Independent Salon Business Newcomer, and we only went and won it! This category celebrated the best in new independent salons, under two years old. So to make the shortlist for Salon of the Year having only been open for five years in September, would be absolutely amazing!
HJ’s British Hairdressing Business Awards ceremony will take place on Monday 9th of September at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge, London. We cannot wait…..
