A Pocklington salon has proved to be a cut above the rest after winning the coveted title of Pocklington Post’s ‘Salon of the Year’.

We asked readers to vote for their favourite salon and Sarah J’s Hair and Beauty Studio, on Waterloo Lane, was the most popular choice.

To win the award, Sarah J’s beat off stiff opposition from 14 other local businesses who also reached the final of the competition after been nominated by readers.

Owner Sarah Jackson said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve won. It’s absolutely amazing.

“I wasn’t expecting us to win at all.

“Thank you so much to all the people that voted for us, we really appreciated your votes.”

More than 400 votes were received in the competition through a mixture of postal coupons, texts and emails.

Promotions coordinator Sarah Harrison said: “It’s the first time we’ve run the competition, but we’ll definitely be doing it again in future years. Everyone wants to win it. It’s a real prestigious title to have.”
