Salon 7, Oldham College’s commercial Hair and Beauty salon located in the town centre, has been recognised by the public in the inaugural Northern Independent Retail Awards 2015.

Following an immense response in nominations from the public across England, Salon 7 is shortlisted in the category of Hair and Beauty Retailer of the Year. It is where newly qualified hairdressers, beauty therapists and nail technicians polish the skills necessary to successfully manage a column of clients. They learn how to work to the standards and targets required in the beauty industry and refine their practical and customer service skills. Hair appointments and beauty treatments at Salon 7 can be booked by calling 0161 624 8753.

Salon 7 Manager, Michelle Bradley, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award which acknowledges the significance of Oldham College’s ethos of preparing people to progress in life and work. The College aims to ensure that all learners develop the specialist skills, knowledge and competencies required for employment, an apprenticeship or for progression onto higher education. Salon 7 provides the perfect place for Oldham College’s hair and beauty learners to take up apprenticeships and polish their skills in a professional environment.”

Finalists find out if they will be crowned winners at a black tie awards ceremony, organised by Creative Oceanic at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel on Sunday, 19th July 2015.

The Northern Independent Retail Awards aim to celebrate and commend the independent retailers in Northern England, who offer a plethora of unique products and reinvigorate their communities by making them more colourful and vibrant. The list of accolades comprises a variety of categories ranging from Café of the Year, Convenience Store of the Year, Service Provider of the Year and many more.

The awards seek to acknowledge the dedication and successful performance of the public’s favourite independent retailers. The award ceremony provides a platform to show appreciation for those businesses that make our communities different. As well as recognising the commercial success and achievements of the independent retail businesses in Northern England, the awards will be raising money for the Make a Wish Foundation. The charity is dedicated to granting wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses across the UK in order to help them have their dreams come true. Everyone is kindly urged to contribute generously to this fantastic cause and aid the charity to achieve its goal.
