The Egg in Norwich was the lucky winner of our Aveda salon makeover competition!

You entered en masse to win a salon makeover with Aveda, but there could be only one winner – and that was The Egg in Norwich. Judges described it as a “great example of a salon that is unique in its identity and in its dedication in offering clients an exclusive experience”, and we couldn’t agree more.

The judging panel was keen to find a salon that offered clients a luxurious experience and that reflected Aveda’s philosophy and approach to business. “At Aveda, we take a holistic approach for each of our salons, looking at every aspect of their business and tailoring our support, with an overall aim to empower the entire team, be it in retail, front of house, colour, artistry or business benchmarks,” says Megan Lloyd, Aveda national field sales manager. “The Egg shares a similar philosophy, centred around its team and each individual’s identity – making for an extremely creative and inspiring environment.”

Winning formula

Mark and Callum recall the moment they won and what the new partnership with Aveda means to them.

How did it feel when you found out you’d won?

“We were over the moon. Aveda has such a strong voice in the industry and we are so excited about this new partnership.”

What made you enter the competition?

“One of the main reasons was Matt Rose, the local Aveda salon development partner, who, prior to us entering the competition, had previously visited us to talk about Aveda, explaining its holistic ethos and wide range of products. We just loved the whole essence of the brand as it really resonated with ours at The Egg.”

What do you hope to get out of the partnership?

“We are looking forward to evolving and growing our business. Knowledge is definitely power and we are excited about a new energy being brought to the salon, as well as all the creativity and experience that Aveda will inspire the team with.”

What do you like about the Aveda brand?

“We like how Aveda has a very unique identity in the industry and how they approach salons as partners. This uniqueness and individuality aligns really well with The Egg’s identity.”

What are you most excited about?

“Everything. We are excited about the new look, especially at the front of house, but also using the products and all of the creative education and support.”
