Hairdresser teamwork


We need YOU to help us find the top hairdressing and/or beauty salon in our area.

Somewhere that’s a cut above the rest and doesn’t take you at face value.

Your favourite salon might provide the best blow-dries, the perfect haircuts, the neatest threading, the hottest self-tans, the most relaxing massages, fantastic facials or the most glamorous nails.

Whether it’s the way they colour your hair, the extra little touches, or the friendly welcome you always receive, we want to hear from you!

To vote for your favourite salon, you can either send us a text (details below), and/or fill out the coupon (in this week’s paper) and post it to us. The salon that receives the most votes will be crowned the Luton News & Dunstable Gazette Salon of the Year 2014.
