Thousands of entries made for stiff competition but entrants were whittled down to five finalists in each category, with Barrie Stephen taking the trophy for Salon Team of the Year 2015.

Team activities have been part of the Barrie Stephen culture for 20 years and their associations across Leicestershire outreach to charities, the arts, hospitals, hospices, RSPCA, women’s shelters and homeless refuges. These associations come from the
team and are owned by the team. By doing so much for others in their hairdressing work, the team have become part of the fabric of their beloved city and region and are the go to salon for opportunities.

They work together on Curve Theatre hairspray events, and have a team of 10 who go to events like Pride, Summer Sundae Festivals and city centre shopping areas with the pop-up salon and take the Barrie Stephen brand of red carpet hairdressing out of the salon and onto the streets.


“I’m so thrilled to be taking this award back to the salon! To be able to say that my brilliant team are the best in the country is incredible, I couldn’t be prouder. It’s not only great to have all the work we do in the community recognised, but it also goes to show what can be achieved when you work as a team,” said Barrie.
