HUNDREDS of Adver readers nominated their favourite Swindon salon - and now we need your help to pick a winner.

More than 540 nominations flooded in after the Adver launched a major new competition asking people to suggest which of the town’s hairdressers deserves to be heaped with high praise.

We wanted to hear all about the talented teams that help us feel good about the way we look, the staff that make getting a haircut comfortable and enjoyable, the salons we always recommend to friends.

Since the June 3 deadline, we have been busy totting up the totals and tallying all the different nominations to come up with a top 10 shortlist.

Now, we are calling on our readers to cut out the voting token for their favourite from the list and send it in to us before Sunday June 27.

Tokens will be printed in the Adver throughout the next two weeks. We will shine a spotlight on the winning salon that has the most tokens sent in.

Swindon’s best salon will be announced during the week of June 28 with a celebratory front-page story all about their salon and why they came out on top.

The competition's shortlist is as follows:

Platinum Hair Salon, 62 Cricklade Road, Gorse Hill, Swindon SN2 8AF

Ciannas Hair Lounge and Beauty Bar, 124A High Street, Royal Wootton Bassett, Swindon SN4 7AU

Adver editor Pete Gavan said: “Well done to our brilliant finalists for getting this far and to the many readers who were keen to shout about their favourite salons.

"This next bit is the most important part. One vote could make all the difference, so please make sure you send in your tokens on time.

"It's been a tough time for hairdressers who have had to stay shut for most of the last 12 months but this could give one lucky winner something to smile about!

"Get voting - and good luck to everyone in our top ten!"
