Barrie Stephen crowned best salon in the Midlands!


We’ve seen more success in Leicester this week as Barrie Stephen brings home yet another prestigious award following this year’s Hair Magazine Awards. Winning best Regional Salon for the Midlands, Barrie Stephen and his team at the King Street salon in Leicester were commended for their incredible skill, knowledge and passion for the hairdressing world.

Barrie and his team were judged by a panel of industry professionals on the salon ethos, reputation, customer service and the stand out environment that makes King Street the best not only in Leicester, but in the whole of The Midlands.

Hair Magazine Editor Linda Fox said; “A brilliant local salon is a hub of creativity and cool in its area. Barrie Stephen’s reputation has grown by word of mouth and has a legion of loyal followers that wouldn’t dream of booking anywhere else. His dedicated team has original ideas, an amazing environment that makes clients want to return time after time and an edge that makes King Street stand out from the crowd.”

Barrie is a committed businessman and his priority is to deliver the very best hairdressing skills and experience to the people of Leicestershire. “I am so proud of the team for all their hard work in making the salon such an incredible place to be. Awards are an important part of being recognised for work that you do, and it is just great for the team, our clients and Leicester to be able to shout about this city and our work and bring awards home.”
