The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa in Cheltenham has been named as a Salon of the Year finalist in this year’s British Hairdressing Business Awards.

The Gloucestershire based salon will be going head to head with the likes of Sir Trevor Sorbie and Michael Van Clarke in the Salon of the Year category. 

Celebrations have been rife at The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa after it was announced on Friday that they were one of six finalists.

Speaking after hearing the news, Stuart Holmes said: “Words cannot describe how honoured we feel to have been nominated for this award.  These awards are like the Oscars of the hairdressing industry and to be recognised nationally is unbelievable.

 

“We have a great team here in Cheltenham and we work tirelessly to ensure we are always ahead of the game and that our service and professional ability is the best it can be.  To be a Salon of the Year finalist is amazing. We are over the moon. It is a real tribute to the whole team here.”

The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa has also been named as a finalist in the Website of the Year/Innovation of the Year category. The Cheltenham salon places a great emphasis on utilising technology to improve client experience and this year launched The HairPod, a bespoke application for the iPhone, as well as a state-of-the-art website.

Stuart said: “I love harnessing the power of technology.  Our clients’ experience is seamlessly thought-out. From having the ability to book online to testing out new hairstyles on their iPhone, we have made sure that should our clients wish to use such technology that it is available to them.”

The British Hairdressing Business Awards are organised annually by Hairdressers Journal, one of the leading industry publications.  The winners of the awards will be announced at a glitzy ceremony on Monday September 20 at The Lancaster in London.   The whole team from The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa will be travelling down to London for the event.
