It’s a week of celebrations for Birmingham-based salon Griffins as the team scooped two awards at this year’s West Midlands Salon Awards.

Held at the Crowne Plaza in Birmingham, the West Midlands Salon Awards celebrated the best in the region with ten categories such as Best Salon, Best Customer Experience and Best Salon Team.

To enter the awards, salons were asked to answer a series of questions, providing images and evidence to back up their entry whilst providing client testimonials to prove their ability and skills. Once submitted, the entries were then judged by an exclusive panel from around the UK. Finalists for each category were announced and each finalist was invited along to the glittering awards ceremony.

Hosted by hairdressing icon Errol Douglas, team Griffins were announced as the winners of Creative Image of the Year and Best Salon for Extensions at the glittering ceremony.

Michelle Griffin, owner of Griffins and CEO of Loxbox Extensions, commented: “When they announced us winners of two awards we were absolutely ecstatic. To be recognised for your skill, passion and commitment to the hairdressing industry is incredible and myself and the team are truly honoured.”

Kate Jeffery, Salon Awards director, added: “The second stop for 2019 on the Salon Awards calendar was a great success, and the enthusiasm and support from everyone has been amazing. I started these awards to be able to give all salons and hair professionals the chance to compete for an industry award, and do something great for themselves or their business.

“When we have salons competing, and winning, who are located in some of the most deprived areas of the country, this is something that can make a real difference. This for me underlines how important offering this opportunity is, not only for the industry, but to those who make it what it is.”
