On Monday 4th July 2016 nearly 250 guests donned their best outfits and headed to Madison rooftop bar in St Paul’s, London in the name of the Salon Business Awards.

Talented hairdressers, members of the press, PRs and brand managers were among them as they all arrived ready to witness the unveiling of the winners.

“There were some incredible entries to choose from, but after hours of deliberation our judges decided on the deserving winners across our 12 categories,” said Salon Business Publishing Editor Jo Charlton, who presented the awards.

Salon Business Awards selfies flooded social networks and our dedicated TV set, while guests waited in suspense of the award announcement. There were also delicious canapés and champagne, with networking number one on the agenda.

Once all the winners were named, it was time to celebrate each and every finalist and winner. DJ and saxophonist Brendan Mills hit the decks, while bite size fish and chips, braised beef and button masala kept hunger levels at bay, leaving happy hairdressers to hit the dance floor.
