𝕎𝕖 𝕎𝕠𝕟 𝔹𝕖𝕤𝕥 𝕎𝕖𝕕𝕕𝕚𝕟𝕘 ℍ𝕒𝕚𝕣 🍾👰♀️
We can’t thank @the.wedding.emporium enough for recognising us and our unbelievable team of minxies hairstylists to win Best Wedding Hair 👰♀️
This means the world to us and let me tell you why....
1. It has come from industry insiders
2. We don’t have to pay anything
They pop up everywhere and you get that sparkling email 💌 which states:
‘You are nominated for best wedding hair and make up’
You then reply: ‘oh wow thank you’
Then as fast as you’ve replied you get another email through....
To claim your free ticket to the awards click here and guess how much an accompanying ticket is....you know just £200 BUT if you buy a table it’s only £1400 😬
Then you look at the organisation running it and they are also running awards for Golfing, Beauty, Cats and god knows what else 🤷♀️
Yes we’ve been there, yes we’ve paid the table, yes we won 🙌 but does it feel sincere? It’s a tricky one.
The question always arises, do we just want to ‘play the game’ and build the hype of an award which we’ll have to probably ‘buy a table’ before we are even considered winners? Does it really mean anything if it’s not run by industry professionals?
We were super chuffed when we received this award, it was from wedding insiders who KNOW our industry and was given to us because they recognised our work as the best and congratulated us on it. That’s it....no follow up email with ticket prices. Just we love your work and we have picked Minxies as the best for Wedding Hair...🙌💕. It means so much more 😊.
Here at Minxies HQ we LOVE to do competitions to get our awards. Scary but oh so fulfilling competitions, the biggest in the UK and the most recognised in the Uk 🇬🇧. The ones where you have the best of the best professionals in your industry judging. With a pen in one hand and a fierce poker face analysing our every move then marking our hair and make up. Winning here is the BEST feeling in the world.
Be very sure, that when Minxies say we are ‘Multiple Award Winning Team’ we are for awards that actually mean something.
