Respectfully 011 – Hairdressing awards with Errol Douglas and Charlotte Cave

In this week’s episode,  we’re talking about the power of hairdressing awards, and asking what can they do for you and your business? They can be a great way to promote your salon and clients are always impressed when you’re nominated, even more so when you win! While we agree awards can be great, we also discuss where there might be room for improvement and when hairdressers may need some guidance with their entries too…

On the panel…

Errol Douglas MBE–  An industry icon and patron of honour for the Fellowship of British Hairdressing, Errol has been nominated 21 times for the British Hairdresser of the Year Award. As an individual, and as a salon – Errol has won countless awards in both the trade and consumer fields.

Charlotte Cave is a hairdresser, make-up artist and a salon owner who has worked extensively in the fashion and music industry. She now owns two beautiful, boutique, experiential salons in Clapham Old Town and Balham – both in London.
