More awards for salon
Reds Hairdressing director Diana Beaufort credited her ‘‘ amazing team’’ and ‘‘ happy clients’’ for the salon’s top showing at the New Zealand Hairdressing Industry Awards.
The Pukerua Bay salon was named Supreme Winner of New Zealand Salon of the Year at a function in Auckland on November 20, where it competed against the top echelon of salons nationwide.
‘‘I have a fantastic team of people working with me,’’ says Ms Beaufort. ‘‘They are all committed to consistently going the extra mile and I’m committed to providing them with the tools, knowledge, and life skills to be successful in their own right.’’
Reds also won the Employer of Choice award for the second time in two years. Stylist Nicola Ahnau was an awards finalist and Jorja Andrews won the Apprentice Photographic Award.
Kitomba chief executive Tom Murphy said: ‘‘Reds stood out as the best all-round entrant.
‘‘Their business performance was excellent, their marketing outstanding, and the work they do with their team won them the Telecom Employer of Choice.’’
The award was the latest success in a long line of honours the salon and its stylists have received.
In 2010 Reds was awarded New Zealand Training Salon of the Year.
