A south east Northumberland family have proved to be a cut above the rest after winning a hairdressing award.
At Sisters Hair and Beauty, in Pink Lane, Newcastle, won the Special Award at the Service Network’s Culture of Success Awards and was highly commended in the Small Award category.
The salon was opened in 1975 by Margaret Emmonds, of Holywell, as The Hair Cabin before her daughters Claire Hildreth, of New Hartley, and Joanne Emmonds, of Seaton Sluice, joined and the name changed in 2007.
The family-run hairdressing and beauty business was praised for its ‘all-round successful culture’.
The salon also receives business and social media advice from Margaret’s other daughter, Suzanne McCready, who lives in Seaton Delaval.
Margaret said: “We’re thrilled to have been recognised for valuing and developing our employees.
“It is a real joy to have Claire and Joanne run the salon and Suzanne offering advice in her spare time.
“Awards like this just make it that extra special.”
