“It is tremendous that a salon in a small town like Ipswich has won this national award, It is a great achievement.

“We are proud of the whole team.”

Jessica said: “it was a great surprise. Obviously we were confident, you want to win, and we put a lot of hard work into it, but when we saw the other finalists, and the high standard, you don’t think you are going to.
