Guappo boss named ‘Stylist of the Year’ at top industry awards

An East Durham hair stylist has picked up a top national industry gong.

Philip Unsworth from Guappo Hair Design in Shotton Colliery was named ‘Stylist of the Year’ at the English Hair and Beauty Awards.

Philip, who owns the salon with his wife Samantha, said: “I am absolutely over the moon to win this prestigious award. Stylists strive to be recognised on the national stage to be named Stylist of the Year is fantastic.

“The win is for the whole Guappo team who work so hard to maintain our excellent reputation and our growing list of clients.”

Guappo was also nominated in the ‘Salon of the Year’ category, while Amber Unsworth was shortlisted in the ‘Junior Stylist of the year’ category.

The awards are voted for by the public which Phiip says makes the win even more special.
