Award-winning salon — Tony Wood Hair’s national success
Since 2015, we’ve spent some time behind the scenes each year gunning for top national awards and earning national acclaim for the Tony Wood Hair at leading industry events. We keep winning local awards, too, both in Portsmouth and in the wider Hampshire/south coast regions.
Following a string of successes at the Portsmouth News Hair & Beauty Awards pre-2015, we achieved our first UK-wide positions with finalist spots in the ‘Best Salon Experience’ and ‘Business Thinker of the Year’ categories at Creative Head’s Most Wanted Awards. A year later, in 2016, we landed Innovation of the Year finalist at the Most Wanted Awards.
Also in 2016, Tony Wood Hair grabbed our first national win, at the HJI British Hairdressing Business Awards. The category? Innovation of the Year. The innovation? Magic Scissors, a fundraising venture which took Tony to celebrity salons across the country. After receiving finalist credit for the Marketing category earlier in the night, the whole Tony Wood Hair crew were triply ecstatic when the salon was announced as crowning victors for Innovation.
Here’s a video of Tony taking to the stage to accept the award:
We rounded out 2016 by winning Hair Salon of the Year at the JP South Hair & Beauty Awards — a win we replicated in 2017. Other 2017 wins at the JP awards were:
- Junior Stylist of the Year (Tanahya) 2017
- Colour Technician of the Year (Lydia) 2017
- Apprentice of the Year (Carla) 2017
- Lifetime Achievement Winner: Tony Wood
2017 also brought us more finalist listings for international awards, including Salon Design, Marketing, and Manager of the Year at the HJI Hairdressing Business Awards and Apprentice of the Year at the NHF Business Awards.

We’re excited to see how Tony Wood Hair — the salon, the team, the projects — continues to earn acclaim, recognition, and celebration on a national level in 2018.
