Guappo and owner Philip win big at industry awards

A Shotton Colliery hair salon has come away winners from the industry’s top awards.

Guappo was in the running for honours at the North East Beauty Industry Awards, which were held last night at the Grand Hotel in Gosforth.

It turned out to be a great night for the salon, which won the ‘5 Star Regional Salon of the Year – County Durham’, while owner Philip Unsworth won ‘Stylist of the Year’.

Philip said: “It was a double whammy for us.

“We were pleased to be in the finals so to win both our nominated categories was amazing. Well done to the team as it’s down to them that we’ve come away winners.”

The awards aspire to recognise and celebrate those in the hair and beauty industry who make us look and feel our best and often go above and beyond to do so.
