Hair salon Seckington’s has made the finals of the British Hairdressing Business Awards

The salon on Wellingborough Road, Northampton, has been named a finalist at the British Hairdressing Business Awards 2015 for Salon of Year 1.

The team competed with salons from all over the UK to make it as finalist. Impressing the judges with their team work, strategic thinking, passion for team development and his overall devotion to the local community, the team take their place in the shortlist for the awards with some of the industry’s biggest names.

The British Hairdressing Awards are hosted by trade magazine, Hairdressers Journal to celebrate outstanding achievement and business acumen of those working in UK hairdressing. Panels of experts such as fashion photographers, business specialists and international hair stylists judge the awards. The team from Seckingtons will find out their fate at the grand final ceremony held this year at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on Monday, September 14.

To qualify for the title of Salon of the Year 1, the team submitted a dossier of the business strategies that were implemented in 2014, talking about their devotion to the salon and the people within it which has enabled Seckingtons to grow tremendously in turnover and profile this year.

Salon owner, Johnny Seckington is thrilled to have made the final five in the running to become Salon of the Year 1.

He has also been nominated for the Business Thinker title at the Most Wanted Awards.

He said: “I can’t quite believe it, to be shortlisted for one award was phenomenal. Two awards is just amazing, I’m speechless. I feel like I’ve already won in being shortlisted alone. I opened Seckingtons in 2009 with a small team and never dreamt that six years on we would be in the position that we are today. I am so grateful to all of the team and our loyal clients for making Seckingtons what it is today. This is like a dream come true for the team to be recognised in such a way. It’s turning into a busy month in September with both the Most Wanted and the British Hairdressing Awards coming up and we really cannot wait!”
