The most coveted award of the night came as KH Hair Group co-managing director, Darren Messias, revealed the Arnold salon was the 2019 Salon Of The Year (see photo above). "We'd like to say a huge thank you to our hard-working team and also to our wonderful clients who have become like family,” commented salon directors Dawn Bramhall and Liz O'Neil on receiving the award. “Our heartfelt thanks go to them for their loyalty over the past 34 years."

The Arnold team returned to the stage four more times as they were announced winners of the Salon Highest Turnover award; Salon Clients award; Receptionists award and Marketing award, sponsored by Toast PR. There were celebrations too for the West Bridgford salon team who received the Salon Service award, while the 1st Year award went to trainee, Bethany Wallace and the 3rd Year award went to trainee, Emily Edgson. The salon's Steve McEntee picked up the Individual Retail award for the third year running. The Ilkeston salon was named winner of the hotly-fought Image of the Year award which was presented by industry icon, Robert Eaton.

Breaking with tradition, this year's special Directors' award, usually given to an individual for special achievement, went to the whole of the KH Hair Creative Team. "This team works tirelessly because of the collective passion for hairdressing," Darren Messias explained. "They give up huge amounts of their own time as well as being busy stylists in their own right. Plus, we simply could not ignore the unprecedented achievement of KH Hair winning our first ever British Hairdressing Award in 2018."

With the award ceremony coming to a close, Darren thanked the salons for helping to raise a collective £5,388 in the last year for the Group's official charity, Childline. "We celebrated 10 years of support for Childline last year."  he said.  "The teams have taken part in some amazing fundraisers including bake offs, bike rides and marathons and we'd like to thank them all for their continuing support."
