Commenting on winning the award, Lisa, said:

  This is amazing, I can’t quite believe it. I had no clue I was going to win it and I am absolutely delighted. I have to thank my husband because without his support in looking after our three children, I couldn’t have made the business the success it is. It is a true team effort – from everyone in the salon, to my clients and family – thank you!
