The Place Hair and Beauty, located on Knowsley Street and which is also accessible from within the Market Place, is up for a prize at the UK Hair and Beauty Awards after making the shortlist in the ‘Best New Salon’ category in Bolton.
Owner of the salon, Abi Quigley, said: “Our current customers mention how we greet them and make them feel welcome. We don’t make them feel judged or look them up and down from the moment they walk in.
“They feel important and listened to and our staff are not over the top in appearance and this makes customers feel less conscious about themselves when they come in.

“What makes our salon different is the amount of skill in lots of different services and different types of clients.
“We are hijab friendly, and I have worked and done market research in many parts of the world by having my own hair done by hairdressers in parts of the world I visit to see if I can take things away to my own salon.
“We are also a finalist in the Bolton Women in Business Awards.”
