A FAMILY-RUN hairdressers in Bolton has been shortlisted as one of the top salons in the country.

John-Lee Guy Hair in Deansgate was nominated for the Best Hair Salon category in the English Hair and Beauty Awards by their clients.

The team of stylists will find out if they have won the title in an awards ceremony at the Midland Hotel, Manchester, on March 3.

John-Lee Guy, aged 32, took over the Deansgate salon in 2003 from his family — who also run Euphoria in Harwood.

Mr Guy, from Egerton, said: “It’s the clients who got us there with their nominations and votes. It’s absolutely fantastic to know that we’ve got their support — especially because we’re a local family-run business.

“There are so many chains on the high street nowadays, we’re really proud that we’re still busy and obviously doing something right.

“Some people have to make a lot of sacrifices theses days, such as cars and holidays, but I still think people like to treat themselves to a good hair cut.”
