Canberra’s award-winning Bond Hair Religion salon is officially the BEST SALON in NSW/ACT and Australia, winning the two major awards at the Australian Hair Industry Awards (AHIAs) on Sunday 15th March in Brisbane at a gala dinner night attended by the industry’s elite.
As the only Canberra-based salon to be selected a finalist in both award categories, Bond Hair Religion has been rewarded and recognised as a salon that excels in the business of professional hairdressing, proving that a keen business sense and exceptional business acumen is essential to running a successful salon!
The award for State Salon Business of the Year (NSW/ACT) recognizes the salon that shows highest customer excellence in facilities, environment, customer care, services, menu and training.
The Australian Salon Business of the Year award was announced on the night and was awarded to one of the winners of the State Salon Business of the Year. The winner is determined based on the highest judging points and a secondary round of judging if required. According to Jenni Tarrant, Creative Director/Owner of Bond, “For Bond Hair Religion to be awarded the Best Salon Business in Australia is a wonderful recognition of 10 years of challenge and triumph. It’s a wonderful thing to know that at a national level, Bond is a business that rivals many across Australia. Owning and managing a successful business is no easy task. And continuing to go from strength to strength is even harder. But when you surround yourself with a talented team, expect excellence no matter what and strive to improve something every day - no matter how big or small, rewards are inevitable.”
A strong panel of Industry and business experts from all over Australia spent three full days at one of the AHIA state judging events held in Sydney and Brisbane scrutinizing over 180 entries in the second AHIAs. “Bond Hair Religion is all about consistency and innovation. It is reflected in our client feedback, our reputation and in our bottom line. It is for this reason that we were judged the Best Salon Business in Australia. We are honoured to be considered the top salon in Australia and to contribute to the outstanding Australian hairdressing industry,” says Jenni.
