We can’t believe that a year has passed since the inaugural Herald Look Awards where DefactoSalons.com were thrilled to win the “Innovation in Technology Award”.
So here we are, a year older and a year wiser! We have added considerably to the functionality and performance of our websites and we are now competing directly with the big established players in our market.
This year, Defacto is sponsoring two categories; Hair Salon of the Year and also Cosmetic Dentist of the Year. To celebrate our involvement, we are offering 2 places at our Sponsor’s Table…you and a friend could enjoy an evening of marvellous entertainment and some pretty amazing food and wine! The event will be held in the Radisson Blu in May, in Glasgow, and promises to be a stunning evening.
How can you win this super prize? Very simple….all we ask you to do is continue from this page to our website and leave a review for your favourite salon. We will collect all reviewer’s names at the end of March and announce the winner then.
