Q Hair & Beauty through to final of prestigious awards

Pickle1Everyone at Q Hair and Beauty is brimming over with excitement at the news the salon, based in the charming city of Chichester, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Observer Business Awards 2013.

The salon, which already has a long and impressive list of awards to its name, has just reached finalist status in two categories of the Observer awards – ‘Education and Training’ and ‘Going Green’.

The judges were impressed both by Q’s forward-thinking personal development structure and the fact it is the only hair and beauty salon in the region to make positive changes to target its carbon footprint.

Salon owner Anthony Barnes-Smith, who last year was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement in the same annual awards, said: “It’s always amazing to be recognised for our continual efforts to bring specialised and consistent education to our team.

“We’re also very proud that our theme of being kinder to the environment has brought about exciting changes we’ll certainly continue to apply.”

The team will be waiting with bated breath until Friday, April 19 when the winners will be announced at a black tie award night at the Hilton Avisford Park in Arundel, compered by local TV celebrity Fred Dinenage.Pickle2
