A TEAM from Greenock are feeling a cut above after being nominated as the most loved hair salon of the year.

Colors Hair Salon in Holmscroft Street has reached the finals of the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards 2019 thanks to the support of their clients.

Owner Jennifer Marshall is delighted that the business has been listed as a finalist.

She said: “To find out we had made the finals was so exciting.

“The Scottish hair and Beauty Awards are massive and I never expected we would make the finals.

“We can’t wait to go along to the awards ceremony in December.”

Jennifer credits the success of the business to her loyal clientele and hard-working team comprised of hairdressers Nicola Wood and Lauren Rigley and make-up artist Nicole Polland.

She said: “The business has been running for just over two years but I have worked with two of the girls as a team for three years.

“I have worked with Nicola and Lauren before and we make a great team, Nicole joined us almost two years ago and we are a great settled team.

“Not only are the team like a family but our clients are too.

"They don’t just come to get their hair and make-up done, some stop in for a cup of tea and a chat if they are passing. We really do have brilliant clients.

“We all help each other and clients know that they can come to any of us and they will receive the same treatment, it is a great atmosphere.

“It means a lot to us to be in the final of most loved salon because we really do try to make it a great experience for everyone and we just can’t thank people enough for voting for us.”

Jennifer and the team are excited about heading along to the awards in The DoubleTree by Hilton in Glasgow on Sunday December 8.

She said: “We are really looking forward to it and everyone is excited for us, some of the clients want to come with us.

“We hadn’t really thought about what it would mean to win as just reaching the finals was a big achievement.”
