Well what a night it was! This was our first time in such a big awards competition and already very pleased to have made the finals we all were excited and a little nervous on what to expect.
Having left London for Manchester we arrived at The Midland Hotel, the hosts of the awards and our place of stay. What a beautiful hotel and can highly recommend it if you are staying in Manchester. Apparently it's where Becks proposed to Posh! Staff were lovely and we really felt like we were treated like VIP's.
Having got glammed up and had a few photos taken in our rooms we set off to the venue room. Very nice too. Large tables, stage and the feeling of a good awards night. I was so pleased that Caroline Sanderson, my mentor from the Salon Jedi marketing course had flown down from Scotland to be there to see us and fellow students of hers that had all made the finals.
The awards started and with a few being given out we were then entertained by up and
coming singer Cusick Jnr the Scottish Micheal Buble.
The Awards Charity sponsor Katie Piper then came on stage and presented a short film of the work her charity does for burns victims. She truly is an amazing women and looking great as well.
Dinner and then on with the awards. The Salon was in Best London Salon and I was in Best Men's Stylist. Unfortunately we didn't win but runner up to Mayfair's Headmaster Group and Jamie Stevens ( X Factor, This Moning, Gok Wan and MTV ) was a pretty good result for us and Enfield.
A few more drinks and photos followed and then off to Tiger Tiger for the aftershow party. All I can say about Tiger Tiger is that they know how to enjoy themselves in Manchester!!
We have a few more competitions in the pipeline and voting for next years Awards starts in October, so watch out all the 'Big Gun' salons and stylists James
Whitaker Hair's stylists are after your crowns!! All puns intended!!!
Thanks again to our wonderful stylists that voted for us and here's to the future :)
