NoScrunchie is back with a bang this year, with the second annual Good Afro Salon Awards, the only award ceremony in the hair industry where winners are chosen by loyal consumers. After the incredible success of last year’s event, we are aiming to make this year’s awards a lavish affair, with the ceremony being held at the L’Oreal Academy, no less – and with sponsors like Edgestick and Mizani Professional, the glittering event will honour the crème de la crème of the British afro hair industry.
The ceremony will be held on the 2nd November, and will bring together critics, hair specialists, entrepreneurs and industry professionals to discuss tales of tresses and lustrous locks. Nine stylists and afro-specific salon owners will be crowned and honoured for consistently delivering superb service to their customers, in a continuation of the ethos that NoScrunchie strongly endorses. The afro salon review portal was designed to encourage and build upon the most important aspect of the hair industry – client satisfaction and relationships and the NoScrunchie afro salon awards set out to honour those who blow away the competition.
We decided to create the Good Afro salon awards, an awards ceremony that any good afro salon can enter, simply by recognising and promoting the relationship between clients, stylists and salon owners. Clients can nominate their favourite stylists in a number of categories and those who receive the most reviews will be shortlisted to attend the Good Afro Hair Awards – it’s as simple as that.
Salons have reported that since winning the Good Afro salon awards last year, their client numbers have been growing steadily by about 10 new clients a month, and with 700 salons and 1,000 reviewers signed up, the site is quickly becoming the go-to place for afro hair recommendations and advice.
This year’s categories are:
- Weave technicians
- colour professionals
- natural stylists
- braid / plait / twist specialists
- cut and style professionals
- wig makers
- mobile stylists
- exceptional customer service
The 2014 Good Afro Salon awards competition runs from the 22nd September to the 24th October. Only reviews written during this period will count!
Prizes for winners include professional haircare products from Mizani, one-of-a-kind crystal Edgestick and, of course, a better shot at fantastic reviews on NoScrunchie.com.
To nominate a salon for the Good Afro Salon Awards, anyone can simply head to the NoScrunchie website, leave a review for their favourite stylist mentioning the category they’d like to nominate them for, then sit back and see if they get through to the final round. There are lots of prizes to be won for reviewing your favourite salons. Follow NoScrunchie on social media for more information on these prizes!
