This was the second year that we had entered and after winning two awards in 2015, Best Customer Service and Apprentice of the Year we were hopeful with our entry this year which was sponsored by Woking Borough Council, The Business Innovation Award.
The awards were being held at Epsom Racecourse and the team were very excited. There were 17 categories and upon arrival it was clear to see just how many small businesses in Surrey had made it through to the final.
Our entry was based on the salon's Truly Tailored Colour Concept and the Business Awards were not hair industry related which made it even more exciting to have gotten into the finals with 7 other businesses in our category.
Truly Tailored Colour reflects the journey that as a salon we have been on over the last 12 months to revolutionise the way our clients experience hair Colour. We wanted to set our salon experience apart from the way other salons Colour hair. We started with creating life sized hair swatches that were custom coloured and that the client can pick up and try on. We have also customised an iPad app to create structure and improve communication with the client based around skin tone and eye colour to enable the stylist to achieve a more accurate analysis of hair colour for the client.
The awards evening consisted of a three course dinner, entertainment and business owners eagerly awaiting the announcements they were hoping for.
We were delighted to be announced the winner in our category Business Innovation and we're thrilled to collect our 3rd Surrey Business award in two years. The Pure Hair team partied the night away until the early hours with all the other winners.
