Hoxton Salon wins Qype Business Award
Hoxton Salon in London has been crowned Britain's Best Beauty & Wellness Venue as part of the Qype Business Awards, held at the Brixton Club House on March 29. The boutique salon, which beat 20,000 beauty and wellness venues listed on consumer review site Qype, is run by Paula Bedwell and offers organic hair colouring, natural nails and specialist waxing. Richard Dennys, Qype's chief marketing officer, said: 'Hoxton Salon has worked tirelessly to encourage reviews and comments on Qype. Their feedback is a credit to the company's friendly and expert approach.' The awards were based on comments and reviews posted on the site over the past 12 months. Qype took into consideration the response and activity of both reviewers and businesses, the interaction between the two, average star ratings and the content of reviewers. The Beauty & Wellness Venue of the Year shortlist included London beauty salon So Fabulous, Chorlton Nail Bar in Manchester, Zuba Hair & Beauty in Edinburgh and Thermae Bath Spa in Bath, among others. Guy Christian Hair Salon in Cardiff received a highly commended in the category and a special mention went to London piercing studio Cold Steel.
