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 makes us feel good inside as well as outside.
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.
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.
Readers will then be invited to vote for a winner.
The winning salon will be crowned the Journal Salon of the Year 2014 later this year.
Nominations need to be submitted before 9am on Monday, May 26.
