Hot on the heels of being announced ‘Green Salon of the Year’ at Salon Business Awards 2019 last month, Oxford’s Anne Veck has picked up yet another crown, winning the title of the UK’s Best Regional Salon for the whole of the south of England.

The win came at the Hair Magazine awards 2019 with founder Anne Veck receiving the accolade for the salon’s extensive green credentials, involvement in the city and excellence in hairdressing. The winners’ celebration took place at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London on 16th September, where Anne was named top of her category after beating five other finalist contenders to receive the impressive title of best British southern salon. 

Anne secured the title thanks to outstanding client testimonials, glowing reports from mystery shoppers, a beautiful interior, and impressive ways the business had introduced eco-conscious changes. Anne Veck Salons was also seen by judges as an example of best environmental and ethical practice. The business on St Clements Road has been nominated for an Oxfordshire Business Awards Energy & Environment Award, while also being a founding member of a project to make Oxford one of the UK’s first Living Wage Cities. The salon itself is one of only two hairdressing businesses UK wide to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.

“We believe that businesses should operate ethically and sustainably and being active in the community and raising funds for charities is part of this philosophy,"  commented Anne on receiving her award. "We're particularly proud that we have become known locally for our charity work and we’re always ready to help out if a client asks us to donate to a cause that is close to them. I love hairdressing and I love my city; combining the two as much as possible is something I thoroughly enjoy."
