Bar­ber shop takes its sec­ond na­tional ti­tle

Midweek Visiter - - News -

THE Mas­ter Bar­ber’s Shop on Southport’s Lord Street has been named the best in the UK for the sec­ond year in a row by the Na­tional Hair­dressers Fed­er­a­tion.

The shop, at the en­trance to the Way­far­eres Ar­cade, won the Best Bar­ber­ing Busi­ness at the NHF’s Busi­ness Awards on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4, at the Hil­ton Manch­ester Deans­gate.

The Southport bar­ber shop fought off fi­nal­ists from all over the coun­try to win the na­tional ti­tle.

Co-owner Dan Rix said: “This year’s task of en­ter­ing proved par­tic­u­larly daunt­ing as The Mas­ter Bar­ber’s Shop was in di­rect com­pe­ti­tion with na­tional fran­chise and multi-salon op­er­a­tions through­out the UK.

“To have achieved this award in such a dif­fi­cult arena is tes­ta­ment to our staff’s ef­forts in all they do and where we stand in the in­dus­try.”

As part of the qual­i­fy­ing cri­te­ria a mys­tery shop­per was sent to The Mas­ter Bar­ber’s Shop, which scored highly in all ar­eas.

One par­tic­u­lar point was the ef­fort that goes into win­dow dress­ing and help­ing to lift the im­age of Lord Street.

The NHF’s Busi­ness Awards cer­e­mony takes place ev­ery year to cel­e­brate the suc­cess of out­stand­ing pro­fes­sion­als in the hair­dress­ing in­dus­try.

NHF pres­i­dent Agnes Leonard said: “Our win­ners have worked ex­tremely hard to get to where they are to­day, so we wanted to use the Busi­ness Awards as an op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise their achieve­ments.

“Re­ceiv­ing this NHF Busi­ness Award for the sec­ond year run­ning is a huge ac­com­plish­ment for The Mas­ter Bar­ber’s Shop, so they should be thrilled with what they have achieved.”
