A SALON in the heart of Weymouth town center has won the 2021 Dorset Echo Best Hairdressing Salon award.
Gazzini Hair Design, in St Thomas Street, is now officially a cut above the rest after beating all of the area’s competitors to be crowned number one salon, according to Echo readers.
Sarah Gazzini, owner of the company, is the architect of the success of the show, which opened as recently as last year.

Ms Gazzini, 38, said: “It’s a welcome environment and there is a common vibe.
“Customers can come in and relax, which is important in this industry – and I think our team does it well.
“We originally started in smaller premises next door last year. We moved to our current location in early August after the growth of the business.
“Since moving to the new premises, we have installed a beauty salon, which has allowed us to grow the business by providing eyebrow and eyelash care as well as spray tans. ”
In addition to the welcoming atmosphere and the new beauty room, the new premises have a floor fitted with an original touch of epoxy resin – providing a unique colored effect for customers and staff.
In total, Ms Gazzini, who has been cutting hair for 17 years, said her salon has 12 staff members.
“All of our hairdressers are self-employed and work on commission,” she said.
“The show allows them to train in a wide range of aspects, while using the very products of the industry.”
Ms Gazzini said she had “big plans” for the former premises of the salon next door.
“We have two major projects in the works that I can reveal,” she said.
“First of all, we are setting up a new epoxy resin flooring company named Gazzini Epoxy Floor Resin Solutions, which will be separate from the living room – so keep an eye out for that.
“And second, for our old premises next door, we are opening Gazzini Coffee House.”
