Arnold’s KH Hair the highlight at East Midland’s awards ceremony


KH Hair in Arnold is celebrating after scooping an impressive five accolades at this year’s KH Hair Award ceremony. 

The much-anticipated event took place on May 21 at Metronome in Nottingham city centre, where KH Hair’s 200+ staff came together to celebrate individual and team achievements from the Group’s 21 salons which are situated across the East Midlands.

KH Hair Group’s managing director, Darren Messias, began the proceedings by acknowledging 12 individuals for their long service to the company before 25 awards were handed out to this year’s top teams and individuals.

Afterwards the whole team at KH Hair Arnold took to the stage to receive the Salon Clients Award, one of two Marketing Awards (sponsored by Toast PR), and one of the most hotly-fought competitions of the evening, The Image of the Year Award.

Salon director, Dawn Bramhall said: “We really do have the best team, and we are so proud of them all.  This annual event is a fantastic opportunity to get together with the rest of the KH Hair family and celebrate all we have achieved.

We are overwhelmed to have won so many awards across the board.  A massive thank you to the team and to our wonderful clients who continue to support us. We are so very grateful to you all.”  

The most sought after accolade of the night, Salon of the Year, was awarded to KH Hair in Mansfield for an exemplary performance in customer service, turnover and retail sales.

The team at KH Hair’s Castlegate salon were equally delighted as they also received a total of five awards including the Salon Highest Turnover Award and two individual accolades for style director, Steve McEntee. The Group’s Beeston and Sutton in Ashfield salons were also handed awards for their achievements.

During the evening, guests were entertained by The Noise Next Door, the UK’s premier improv’ comedy troupe who have sold out the Edinburgh Fringe Festival an impressive twelve times.

Taking audience suggestions and transforming them into fantastically funny scenes and songs, the cheeky and charming quartet delivered a perfect blend of ludicrous characters, witty one-liners and explosive physicality, leaving their audience crying with laughter.

Following the show, guests were invited to enjoy a selection of food and drink in the atrium while the main room was transformed into a disco where the guests were able to dance the night away to end a perfect evening of recognition and celebration.

Commenting on the event, Group MD Darren, said: “Our KH Hair Awards are always the highlight of the year for us as a company It’s the only time all 21 salons get together to recognise and celebrate individual and team achievements which we feel are so important to acknowledge.

We find the awards create great motivation within our salons and it’s a fantastic opportunity to catch up with the whole KH Hair family. Many congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all our teams for your hard work and support over the past year.”
