Family-run salon, Simon Webster Hair has won Best Salon Brighton 2021 in the SME Business Elite Awards for their central Brighton salon.
Awards ceremonies aren’t new to the team at Simon Webster Hair, who have scooped Best Newcomer, UK Ultimate salon and Mizani Afro Award amongst others in the 9 years they’ve been trading. The SWE Awards celebrate those businesses who constantly provide the best services and products for their clients, allowing them to stand out in their industry. To win, nominees must show innovation, growth and sustainability as well as demonstrating community involvement that sets them apart from their peers. Simon Webster Hair epitomise those qualities with their proven hairdressing credentials but also their impressive support of charities and causes locally, particularly during the 2020 lockdowns.
“It’s always fantastic to be recognised for your business because running a thriving salon takes a lot of hard work. You have to keep developing and improving the service you offer. This industry is all about people and caring for their well-being. But to be recognised during what’s been such a challenging year and for it to encompass all aspects of what we do is really special. 2021 has been a great year for us so far, with Best Salon Brighton being the second award we’ve won. Back in January, Sophie [Webster] was named as one of 2021’s F:Entreprenuer of the Year. And even though we can’t open at the moment, our clients have been incredibly supportive recommending us to friends and booking vouchers online for when we reopen. It’s been really touching to see just how strong the support is. People often think we’re part of a salon chain or larger group, but we’re a home-grown, independent business so our community is everything to us.”
The salon will be reopening the doors to their Gardner Street salon once lockdown restrictions are lifted and until they’re given a date to reopen, online bookings are suspended. But you can still buy e-gift-cards online and stay updated with SWH Team on the salon’s social media pages to make sure you’re at the head of the queue for when restrictions are lifted.
“We can’t wait to be back, doing the job that we love and surrounded by our clients and neighbours. It really is like a family and we’ve missed it so much. There’s nothing better.”
