Mersey salons a cut above the rest.
A MERSEY hairdressing empire has been honoured for its commitment to training its workforce.
Andrew Collinge Hairdressing was presented with a 2018 Princess Royal Training Award, which pays tribute to employers who help nurture the skills of their staff.
Chairman and Creative Director Andrew Collinge received the award from HRH Princess Anne at a ceremony in St James's Palace earlier this week.
The company received the commendation for its unique Graduate salons concept, something it has operated since the mid 1980s.
Apprentices go through a Graduates salon. These stand alone salons allow newly qualified stylists the chance to hone their skills and to help run the salons on their own.
Commenting on the awards Charlie Collinge, Andrew Collinge managing director, said: "We are particularly proud not only to be the first hairdressing company to receive a Princess Royal Training Award but also the first Merseyside-based company to be awarded.
"I am very pleased for our Graduates Salon teams, and the Graduate Apprentices themselves, to be recognised. They are hard working and talented teams."
