THE Press is launching a search for the 'Best Hairdresser or Barber 2024' - and readers are being asked to have their say.

Following on from the success of the 'Best Chippy' competition, The Press has decided to give its readers a chance to celebrate the best hairdressers in the local area.

Press readers can now nominate their favourites in York and North Yorkshire via the link included in this article.

Press editor Nigel Burton said: "York is a city full of great barbers and hairdressers.

"That’s why The Press is delighted to launch this competition so we can recognise the best ones in our communities.

"We’ll be bringing you updates on the barbers and hairdressers in our competition, so keep an eye out and see if your nomination is featured."
