Two of Suffolk's hair salons have received nominations for prestigious national awards.

Heavenly Hair, in Saxmundham, and Sir and Co Barbers, from Aldeburgh, have been nominated for national-level awards at this year's Salon Business Awards and the HJ British Hairdressing Business Awards.

Heavenly Hair is up for the 'Best Local Salon' category, while Sir Barbers is hoping to scoop the 'Best Grooming Salon of the Year' award, which they have been shortlisted for three times in recent years.

The traditional barbershop has also been named as a finalist in the 'Male Grooming Salon' category at the SBAs.

Heavenly Hair was opened by award-winning salon owner Janene Bush in 2015. She then launched Sir and Co Barbers in 2018 and with both businesses going from strength to strength has since added Woodbridge's Quay St. Collective to her empire.

Janene said: “We’re thrilled to have made the finals of two such respected events.

"We poured our heart and soul into our businesses over the past few years. We love what we do and it shows in our work.
