CAROLANN Verity and her highly skilled team of stylists at Hair Review in Mary St are forging ahead in their state-of-the-art salon.

The business has just been nominated for the 2012 ASPYA Australian Salon of the Year.

The salon is no stranger to the awards. It was a finalist in 2006, runner up in 2007, winner in 2008 and second runner up in 2011.

Carolann said she was very proud of her team who worked extremely hard to provide top service and quality hairdressing services to the Gympie public.

She said the secret to success of her business was training.

Hair Review has just been recognised for its commitment to workplace training and the business is now a finalist in the Queensland Training Awards.

"Training is at the forefront of everything we do in the salon," Carolann said.

"Training and high quality staff," she said.

Her daughter, Jamie Jack, was recently selected by hair company De Lorenzo to do session styling in Brisbane.

Carolann said her daughter's ability with long hair and her natural love of the stage made her a perfect choice to show the salon's wares on stage.

"She was sensational," Carolann said. "Her history with speech and drama really helped ."

Christine Skennerton is another employee standing out in the crowd.

Christine has just won a Pride of Workmanship award from Gympie Cooloola Rotary for her dedication to her role in the salon.
