A HEREFORDSHIRE salon has taken home a clutch of awards at this year's English Hair and Beauty Awards. 

The team from Serenity Professional Hairdressing, based in Ledbury, were honoured with three awards at a Midlands and East of England awards ceremony at Colwick Hall Hotel in Nottingham on April 28.

The awards celebrate the work of stylists and salons across England, highlighting excellence in the hair and beauty industry.

Serenity Professional Hairdressing took home the salon team of the year, hair salon in the West Midlands and hair salon of the year overall awards. The competition was fierce, but serenity professional hairdressing received the recognition and took the trophies home.

Salon owner Donna Oliver said the team would love to thank all of their clients for voting and their "amazing support".

"We were all speechless," she said. 

"Behind every incredible salon there's an even better team, and this just proves that we have both. In the 10 years of Serenity I have always had such an amazing team who have stayed with me for many years, which speaks volumes about the close-knit work family that we are. 


"You girls are the best and I couldn't do this without you. All of your hard work, dedication, and support never goes unseen. I also have to say a huge thank you to my husband and our families for always believing in me, encouraging me and helping me every single day, having a business and small children has its challenges and they do so much to help me juggle it all. And last but not least for my boys, I do what I do for you. I am so proud of everything we’ve achieved tonight not just for us as a salon team but my home team too.”

Another Ledbury salon was also named among the best, with Janet's Hair Salon in New Street taking home the colour salon of the year award.

A spokesperson for The English Hair and Beauty Awards 2024 said: “Winning an award in this prestigious competition is a significant achievement, as it acknowledges the talent and hard work of hair and beauty professionals and sets a benchmark for others to follow.

"The winners of these awards represent the highest standards of quality and service in the English hair and beauty industry. We want to congratulate all of our winners and highly commended on their accomplishments.”
