Congratulations to all the team at Pelo, they are honoured to have won!

In June, The Argus newspaper went on the search for the ‘Hairdressers of the Year’ as nominated and voted for by our readers. The winner was crowned and now here is their story.

Dale Francis salon owner and Heidi Day Senior Stylist sent us this statement.

“Wow, we are shocked and very happy to win this award. It is great to have an independent salon in Eastbourne win. We always go above and beyond to make sure all our clients have an amazing haircut and salon experience. Our online reviews certainly reflect this with our current rating being 4.9 out of 5. Winning hairdresser of the year will put Eastbourne salons on the map it's also lovely to get great recognition for all our hard work after owning my own salon for 20-years! We are looking forward to taking more stylist and welcoming new clients to the salon”

Dale opened his first salon in 2001 in Alicante Spain it was a great success with all the different nationalities visiting. His reputation soon become well-known in the area as he grew his business. In 2014 Dale moved back to the UK and opened Pelo in Seaford. After 5 very successful years, he decided to buy a bigger premise in Eastbourne where once again he has an amazing client base with people travelling as far as Bognor Regis to get their hair cut and coloured.


A further congratulations to the runners up in the Hairdresser of the Year Awards.
