UK Enterprise Awards 2021

304 | UK Enterprise Awards 2021 Best Unisex Hair Salon - South West England Hair Jungle is a unisex hair design salon that prides itself on helping clients find self-expression while enhancing hair health. In essence, with each client, it seeks to work with them to bring out their true selves by allowing them to walk away with a hairstyle that truly suits them. One of the most popular hair salons in Plymouth, it is now a jewel in the crown of the grooming industry in The South West. Having opened in 2012, Hair Jungle immediately hit the ground running. Although its aims were simple – to help clients achieve the hairstyle they’re most confident in and enhance/maintain healthy hair – it has been able to achieve these goals reliably time and time again, allowing Hair Jungle to cultivate a loyal client base for whom it is their go-to haircare solution. Fundamentally, it is the Hair Jungle philosophy to deliver great style, healthy hair, and increased personal confidence that assures clients its Stylists will work with them as well as for them, and both are dedicated to finding the solution that suits them best. Due to its exemplary work, Hair Jungle has been the winner of a myriad of different awards, gaining Certificates of Excellence from 2016 to 2021, the award denoted in the title of this very article both in 2020 and this year, and the ‘Three Best Rated Plymouth Hairdresser’ for 2021 award, which marks the 6th consecutive year running it has achieved this accolade. It also has over seven hundred 5-star customer reviews across different independent review sites. Owner, Emily commented, ‘We are just so grateful to our fabulous clients and talented Team for their massive contribution to our success and this recognition. They can rest assured we will continue to keep challenging ourselves to maintain and improve even further going forward.’ Hair Jungle sees hair as not just as way to express oneself, but something that merits the best care to improve and maintain its health and strength from root to tip. The Team deliver their expertise to clients of all genders, making for a diverse and expansive portfolio that the Business has built up over the years. It has also benefited from the development of Plymouth as a city, further allowing the business to grow its client base, happy to step up to the plate in serving the haircare needs of those new to the salon with its 5 self-employed Stylists and 3 exceptional Hairdressing Apprentices. The goodwill Hair Jungle has cultivated over the years has helped ensure its survival over lockdown. In essence, despite closures, it responded by adapting to renewed safety measures and requirements, and consistently kept its clients up to date through its exemplary social media communications – a facet of its marketing that made Hair Jungle invaluable to clients during the past year and a half. Crucially, over lockdown, the Team delivered tips for lockdown haircare, while keeping clients informed of government legislative changes and how this impacted when reopening and usual service would resume. The business also introduced an innovative rolling diary, due to reopening uncertainty, allowing clients to book a preferred weekday and time without a specific date in mind, thus ensuring the salon opened with a full appointment book and that clients could rest assured they would be catered for as soon as Hair Jungle was able. Back and better than ever, the Team are excited to be welcoming its customers through its doors again, having they say been well supported by Government grants and the Furlough scheme, and pleased to be able to deliver its exemplary in- person haircare services to Plymouth city and far beyond for many years to come.
