FUSION Hair Artistry staff in Liverpool have proved themselves to be a cut above and they have the Australian Quality Business Award as evidence.
Owners Sandra and Carlo Panarello have run the business for the past 15 years.
Mrs Panarello said the prize rewarded their hard work and dedication to providing good customer service to all clients.
"We pride ourselves on our service and professionalism," she said.
"I think good customer service is making someone feel comfortable and treating them how we'd like to be treated and listening to what they want.
"The award brings a sense of achievement, that we're still trying and still keeping our clients' service up to date — and I'm very proud of that."
The couple met while working in the industry and decided to start their own salon on Northumberland Street.
Over the years the salon has won 75 awards, including state and national awards and the Pan-Pacific and Australian Hairdresser of the Year award.
Mrs Panarello is also an accredited TAFE teacher.
She said she thought it was important to look after her staff members and provide them with opportunities to learn new things.
"We really pride ourselves on our staff training," she said. "You must train your staff and motivate them.
"A few times a year I send my staff to do certain courses. It's good to be involved in the industry."
