The Reds team were full of excitement as the annual Industry Awards kicked off at Auckland’s gorgeous War Memorial Museum. Hosted by HITO, Kitomba, and NZARH, the awards are a chance for the hairdressing industry to mix and mingle and celebrate the very best in their midst.

Hosted by three-time winner of NZ Hairdresser of the Year, Mana Dave, the best in the industry turned up for the prestigious evening, from top business owners, tutors and trainers to apprentices, stylists and supporters.

Erica Cumming, HITO CEO, said “It was wonderful to see the support and enthusiasm for the awards and award winners from all attendees. This was truly a chance for the best in our industry to shine”.

As finalists for the HITO Training Salon of the Year award, the Reds team were up against some stiff competition, competing for the top spot against Auckland salon Bettjemans and Wellington’s Mane Salon.

To our delight, for the second time, we won! The judges noted how much we had grown as a training salon since last winning, recognising our hard work over the past five years to develop our systems for the ongoing training and up skilling of our team.

Now, officially recognised as the best salon-training programme in New Zealand, we will continue to strive for excellence and offer our clients the outstanding standard of service Reds Hairdressing is renowned for.
