Salon tops the “likes” in festive competition - 11 December 2017

A hair salon in Wellington has proved it’s a cut above the rest after winning the Best Shop Window competition, run by Taunton Deane Borough Council’s marketing and visitor centre team.

Kamyko Hair gained the most “likes” in the competition run on Facebook through Visit Taunton, Visit Wellington and Visit Wiveliscombe – and received warm congratulations from Mayor of Taunton Deane Councillor Hazel Prior-Sankey.

The new approach, harnessing the power and people-reach of social media, proved successful and the team hopes more shops will take part next year.

“It’s a fun way of engaging people and helps to give our retailers and businesses a boost in the run-up to Christmas,” said Mark Edwards, the Borough Council’s executive member for business.
