SNV17_CoverMerry Christmas and a happy New Year from everyone at SalonNV!

We hope you all had a profitable and prosperous 2017 and the next 12 months are even better. It’s been a fantastic year for us, topped off with us receiving a Salutation award at the Fellowship Luncheon, and it’s all thanks to you readers and to the hair and beauty industry professionals who have helped us put together SalonNV with their expert contributions… but 2018 is going to be even better!

We’re starting off the year with a bang! Errol Douglas MBE was awarded the highly prestigious Patron of Honour award by the Fellowship, joining only a select few industry legends to collect the prize. It was great to sit down with him and discuss not only that award but his whole career which has been full of amazing moments.

January can often be a difficult month for our industry, so we’ve enlisted a few experts to give you some tips and advice about how to beat the New Year blues and ensure you keep profits up. Start the year off well and will filter down through the rest of your year.

Our star reporter Katie Margereson has been busy as always this month and her chat with Tracey Devine-Smith about balancing being a working mum alongside being an international educator and hairdresser will give inspiration to any of you aspiring to be in her shoes. Katie also caught up with Bernard Connolly for some first class insight into just how fashion stylists help get those collection shots we love to admire looking just right.

Hidden Heights Creative Studio is another place where hairdressers go when they want to put together a collection to show off to the world. Their expert team of stylists, photographers, and make-up artists combine to create some truly stunning work and we spoke with them all first-hand on how Hidden Heights allows their creative spark to shine.

As always, that’s only the tip of the iceberg of another amazing issue that aims to unlock the secrets of the hair and beauty industry. We’re all so lucky to be a part of it and I feel 2018 will be the best year yet! Enjoy!
