A FLINTSHIRE hair salon is celebrating after claiming a prize at the Welsh Beauty Industry Awards. 

The Wow Company (previously Wow Hair Salon) owner Lisa Davies says she is "over the moon" after picking up the five-star Hair Salon of the Year award. 

The salon, located in Buckley, went through an expansion period last year, which included relocating and increasing staff numbers. 

Lisa also completed a charity fundraiser in aid of Macmillan, following her dad's cancer diagnosis.

After the initial awards evening was cancelled in November, Lisa was informed that she had won the prize ahead of the rescheduled event.

Unfortunately, Lisa and her team couldn't make the evening in January but were still overjoyed with the award and heaped praise on her clients for their years of support. 

She said: "I am absolutely over the moon to have won after eight years in business. This is our fourth year being nominated and now we've won one.

"There’s been amazing support from clients who have been with me for many years and followed Wow to its new premises. I would just like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us from the very beginning of the journey back in 2016 and for all the votes.

"Honestly wouldn’t be where we are today without them."


An awards spokesperson said: “It was another incredible event and we were proud to have such a great calibre of finalists this year.

"The winners are an outstanding example of excellence whose dedication to be the best has made them stand out among the rest.

"We want to congratulate all of our winners and highly commended recipients on their accomplishment."
