Racoon International Celebrates Double Award Win at SME Awards

Renowned hair extension brand, Racoon International has added not just one, but another two awards to its list of accolades. 

The brand was presented with the award for Best Natural Hair Extension Company at the Midlands Enterprise Awards and the Most Trusted Hair Extensions Business at The Greater London Awards.

Both awards recognise the work and achievements of businesses in their retrospective areas, which were able to continue despite the difficulties COVID-19 presented and give the SME businesses the exposure that they rightly deserve.

The awards, which are run by SME News, pride themselves on the validity and integrity of their selection and judging process. They are given solely on merit and commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.

Racoon International Creative Director, Andrew Barton commented:

“To be recognised in two different regions, at two different award ceremonies is a massive achievement and something we’re all very proud of. The Most Trusted Hair Extensions Business means a lot to us as our relationships with all of our clients are built on trust, so it’s something we work very hard to build and maintain across our clientele.” 

Awards Coordinator Dean Taylor commented on the success of this year’s programme: “I am incredibly proud of all of the winners this year and would like to congratulate them on achieving so much. It has been a pleasure managing this programme and I wish all the winners the best of luck for their future endeavours!”
