In 2017, Simon Webster Hair stormed the hair industry, winning UK Ultimate Salon 2017 and reaching the grand final of multiple awards ceremonies in the Salon of the Year and Salon Team of the Year categories. And in 2018 this Brighton independent salon is repeating that success.
With awards’ season only just beginning, Simon Webster Hair have already reached the grand finals of not one, but three of hairdressings’ most coveted awards. Next week, the salon competes in the Ultimate Salon and Best Business Salon categories of the Salon Business Awards, and next month they will be going for Best Salon in the UK Hair Magazine Awards. With more still to be announced, the salon could be in-line for an unprecedented number of wins. Not bad for a family-run salon that opened its doors in 2012.
They put their success down to a clear fashion-forward USP, ethical business strategies that include a gender-free pricing policy and their highly-skilled team of colourists and stylists who style on an international stage as well as working from their Gardner Street salon.
“At SWH our ethos is to combine the intimacy and familiarity of an old-school local hairdressers with the professionalism, creativity and innovation of a high-end salon” says Simon Webster, SWH Founder and KMS UK Guest Artist. “We’re more than just a salon, we’re a community. Our team are central to our success and we are incredibly proud of their achievements and hard work. And we’re extremely grateful for the support and loyalty of our fabulous clients and friends.”
It is their progressive approach to business, which gives the team centre-stage in decision-making and focuses on exceptional client care, that saw them invited onto the Salon Smart stage to present to fellow industry professionals and publications about the future of the hairdressing. And if the audience’s reception was anything to go by, then the salon may soon have even more silverware adorning their window.
Simon Webster Hair is a real local success story and a true Brighton gem that is the epitome of the city’s creative and multi-talented reputation. If you’ve visited their salon, you’ll know exactly what the hype is all about. And if you haven’t, then what are you waiting for? The salon is open Mon-Sat and all consultations are complimentary, so book yourself one right now and see what all the fuss is about.
