A hairdresser has been rewarded for being a cut above the rest by readers of the News Post Leader for the fourth year on the trot.
Edwina Phillipson, pictured, opened The Barbers 2 in Front Street, Newbiggin, in March 2008 and picked up the title of hairdresser of the year for south east Northumberland later that same year.
Edwina has kept hold of that title ever since – a winning run confirmed by the handover of a certificate for winning the 2011 contest.
She said: “I would like to say an enormous thank you to all of my customers from both near and far. It is because of your continued love and support that I have maintained the title of Hairdresser of the Year for the last four years.”
