Smith England finalises for 3 prestigious awards!

Phil Smith, owner of Smith England Salon on the high street in Salisbury, has been recognised as one of Britain’s best business brains!

He’s been announced as a finalist for ‘Business Director of the Year’ as part of HJ’s Hairdressing Business Awards for 2019.

Smith England, the only not-for-profit salon in the UK, has also been announced as a finalist for ‘Salon Team and Salon of the Year’ for the second year running. The salon is the current 2018 title holders.

Not only does Phil run a very successful hair salon, he also has his own line of products in a number of well-known stores including Sainsbury’s and Argos. His 35 years of hairdressing and impressive career achievements lead him to be shortlisted for the prestigious leadership accolade.

Phil says: “I’ve grown so much in leading and taking risks in business. The journey of trying new things, seeing what works and re-evaluating over the years has been an amazing path of growth, and I’m thrilled to finalise.

“I have been passionate about hairdressing since I can remember and winning this title would mean everything to me. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this recognition without the support of my brilliant team who have run beside me with incredible enthusiasm and commitment. Without them we would not have finalised for these three awards.”

Jayne Lewis-Orr the executive director of the British Hairdressing Business Awards talks about what it means to be a finalist: “To be named as a finalist in the Business Director of the Year category confirms just how exceptional Phil is. Already known within the industry thanks to his commercial acumen and exceptional client care, he is only rivalled by a handful of others. He has proven completely that he can lead a team and create a thriving business. We wish him and his team the best of luck.”

HJ’s British Hairdressing Business Awards promote professionalism, innovation and excellence, while recognising individuals and teams that work tirelessly to raise the profile of the hair dressing industry.

The winners will be announced in September. Good Luck Phil!
