Staff at a Mansfield hair and beauty salon are celebrating after winning a national award for the second time.
Mark Leeson Hair Body and Mind, in Regent Street, was awarded the title of artistic team of the year for the second year running at the prestigious 2013 British Hairdressing Awards.
Held in the glamorous Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane, the awards, now in their 29th year, are the ‘Oscars’ of the hairdressing world, recognising and celebrating the creativity of the inspirational British hairdressing industry.
The event was compered by television personality David Walliams with entertainment provided by chart topping band Stooshe.
The awards saw more than 1,700 guests from the world of hairdressing, fashion and media mingled at the prestigious event.
The British Hairdressing Awards are regarded as the most recognised within the hairdressing industry.
The Mansfield team competed against stylists from throughout the country in the much sought-after category.
To reach the final, they had to produce eight photographic images that were then judged by a highly acclaimed judging panel.
After making it to the final six in the region, they then scooped the winners’ trophy on the night.
Mark said; “I was so pleased for our team to win this award. It means so much to not only myself but everyone connected with the salon.
“This award is also a great tribute to the fantastic hairdressing talent and creativity within the salon. Winning this award has been a fantastic way to end 2013.”
