The awards are based on public nominations and cover 21 specialist categories celebrating the most talented hair and beauty professionals in the country.
Hobson & Holmes’ director Andrew Hobson said: “It’s amazing to be recognised by the English Hair and Beauty Awards, and even more so in our fifth year of trading.
“It’s great to feel that we haven’t just been a flash in the pan and that our ethos of affordable luxury with an emphasis on customer service is standing the test of time.”
Nicholas Holmes, Hobson and Holmes’ director, said: “The success is down to our location and ambience of the salon, great staff and the training they receive. All my staff are friendly and approachable whilst maintaining their professionalism at all times.
“I am now the national colour trainer for the colour supplier Goldwell and through that work I get access to unlimited teaching resources and ideas which I can pass onto my staff as soon as new techniques and collections are released. This keeps my staff at the forefront of fashion and trend.”
Hobson & Holmes, which was launched five years ago, at a time when the country was in the depths of recession, has since thrived and grown its workforce to 14 and plans to generate even more jobs, despite the tough economic climate.
