WHICH hair salon or barber shop is the best in Warrington?

That’s the question we’re asking Warrington Guardian readers this week as we launch our new competition, The Best Of 2022.

The past two years have been incredibly difficult for businesses across the town, with many forced to close their doors, shut up shop or furlough staff because of lockdown restrictions during the Covid pandemic.

And with the cost of living crisis having a further impact on their recovery we want to help recognise the efforts of local businesses in the town who have continued to provide the best customer service despite their ongoing challenges.

Over the coming weeks we will be asking you to let us know who you think deserves to be named The Best Of in several different categories.

Warrington Guardian:

From your favourite eateries and takeaways to entertainment venues, beauty businesses and gyms, we want to hear from you.

And for our first category, we want you to tell us who should be named Best for Hair.

Whether it’s a salon, barber, mobile hairdresser or independent stylist, let us know who deserves to be featured in our final shortlist and why.

We know how many talented stylists there are working in the town so it will be no easy feat to choose a winner, which is why we’ll be handing over the final decision to those who know best – our readers.


  • Each Friday morning we will reveal new categories via our social media pages and ask you who is the best. Nominations close each Monday morning at 12pm.
  • Then each Thursday we will publish a shortlist of finalists with voting officially opening.
  • You will be able to vote in one of three ways:

- By commenting under the relevant post on our Warrington Guardian Facebook or Instagram pages = 1 vote

- By entering via the online article on our Warrington Guardian website = 2 votes

- By entering via our Warrington Guardian newspaper = 5 votes

  • The following Wednesday evening we will announce the winner of that category on social media. They will then be entered into the running for our overall Simply The Best award at the end of the competition.
  • Usual Newsquest competition rules apply. For more details go to newsquest.co.uk/terms So get in touch with your salon/stylist nominations and tell us who is hairmazing enough to be one of our Best Of 2022 finalists.
