Harrogate Salon of the Year 2014: Nominate your champion

Help us find the top hairdressing or beauty salon in the Harrogate district.

Tuesday, 7th October 2014, 4:48 pm
Salon of the Year

We all want to look good from top to toe, whether we’re at work, relaxing with friends or on a night out.

Looking good is mood-lifting and can be life-changing, especially if you’re trying to make an impression on a first date or you’re at an all-important job interview.

Finding a salon you can trust is crucial. A great salon is somewhere you can feel comfortable enough to literally put your hair, face or body into somebody else’s hands, and let them work their magic.

Nominate now

It’s somewhere you can be transformed from average to amazing.

Now we need YOU to help us find the top hairdressing and/or beauty salon in our area. Somewhere that’s a cut above the rest and doesn’t take you at face value.

Your favourite salon might provide the best blow-dries, the perfect haircuts, the neatest threading, the hottest self-tans, the most relaxing massages, fantastic facials or the most glamorous nails.

Whether it’s the way they colour your hair, the extra little touches, or the friendly welcome you always receive, we want to hear from you!

We’ll accept nominations for any local salon or barbers offering hair and/or beauty treatments (independent businesses or franchises).

To nominate your favourite for the award, simply post a coupon, send us a text, or email us.

The salons with the most nominations will be added to a final shortlist, revealed online and in our series of newspapers.

Readers will then be invited to vote for a winner.

The winning salon will be crowned the Harrogate Advertiser Series Salon of the Year 2014 later this year.


Complete the coupon, which can be found in your Harrogate Advertiser, Knaresborough Post, Nidderdale Herald, Ripon Gazette and Wetherby News this Thursday, October 2, and post it to:
