A hairdressing salon has made the top five vying for a national award.

Silk Trends Afro & European Hair Design, in Chingford Mount Road, Chingford, was voted into contention for the 2013 English Hair and Beauty Awards by its customers over the last few months.

Owner Ingrid Farrell said she was delighted to make the final for the second year running – after placing 13th last year.

She said: “I cannot believe that we're in the top 5! It's a great honour in itself to be selected, but to be selected 2 years in a row, and in the top 5 is a huge huge achievement.

“It's a wonderful feeling knowing that our clients voted for us, and think so highly of us and are so loyal.”

She and her team are now waiting until March 3 to find out whether they have won the prize, when the winner will be picked by top industry figures at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
