“I was quite stunned. I hadn’t even considered we might be in the running for the major award.” That was Jess Telfer’s reaction when she learned that Cocoon Beauty and Day Spa, the Rangiora salon she co-owns with her mother Sally, had won the 2018 Beauty Sense Award for Stockist of the Year.
Beauty Sense Ltd is a leading supplier of product to the professional beauty industry in New Zealand, supplying 450 individual stockists nationwide. Every two years Beauty Sense holds awards for excellence in the beauty industry and the Stockist of the Year Award is its highest level of recognition.
“There are a number of criteria on which a salon is judged,” Jess says. “Particularly important to us at Cocoon and a major focus is investing in staff education and training. We want all members of our team to reach their highest potential. We also put a great deal of effort into improving our marketing and presence on social media. I ensure that our Facebook page and Instagram are updated regularly with new and interesting content about our treatments and the products that we use.”
Cocoon is no newcomer to winning awards however, having received multiple industry and supplier awards since 2011. “We enter awards to keep us improving on what we do. They are a chance to revisit our business plan to make sure we are on the right track and they are also great for team morale.”
To celebrate the win Cocoon is rewarding you. From 13 to 27 October, book an Image Signature Lift facial and receive a free Image i- trial Collection featuring the best of Image skincare.
