A long-standing Werribee salon has been voted one of the best in the west.
Salon Vogue on Watton Street placed second in a recent community survey ranking hair salons from across the state.
The one-stop style and beauty shop also ranked in the top-10 in the state.
Owner Pino Burrone started the business 25 years ago.
He grew up in Werribee and opened Salon Vogue Hair in 1994.
“I started off as the sole owner and we now have 16 staff and a beauty therapist,” Mr Burrone said.
He’s also just added a barber.
“When we renovated we realised that a lot of men want to have their hair cut at a barber shop – guys love it,” Mr Burrone said.
Mr Burrone and wife Ange renovate the salon every five years to keep abreast of latest trends.
“This award really validates our ongoing training and the hard work that goes on.
“We make sure our staff are continually on top of what’s new and fresh,” he said.
“I’ve got an established clientele that’s
been with me for a long time, which is really, really nice to have and to know that we’re appreciated.”
