Music Makeover Salons 2017 launch event in Glasgow
Glasgow salon NAF! has been named winner of PRS for Music’s national Music Makeover Salons competition, taking home a £5,000 prize to revamp the beauty haven’s soundsystem.
As part of the celebrations, which happily coincided with NAF!’s second birthday, PRS for Music held a special launch party, followed by exclusive live performances from Edinburgh’s Elle Exxe (BBC) and Dundee’s Be Charlotte (BBC) at The Art School. Both acts are members of PRS for Music, the collecting society that represents the rights of over two million songwriters, composers and music publishers across the globe through its networks. Both acts have also previously been funded by the PRS Foundation, the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development across all genres.
More than 300 salons from around the UK entered to win the national Music Makeover prize, with applications received country-wide from Glasgow to Cornwall. As well as a soundsystem upgrade, which includes a bespoke music consultancy from globally renowned producer Steve Levine (The Clash, Beach Boys), the prize also included an exclusive event, held on Thursday 15 June.
Music plays a vital role in NAF!’s customer experience; based in the centre of Glasgow, the business’ clientele ranges from high-flying businesswomen to a trendier younger crowd, all of whom find common ground through the eclectic yet upbeat sounds of the salon. While music and style have always gone together, NAF! has made sure that their catchy mash-up playlists, which take song suggestions across all genres from both staff and customers, form the core of their business. This ultimately secured them the top prize from PRS for Music.
I’m really happy NAF! in Glasgow has won this year’s Music Makeover Salons competition. They clearly understand the power of music and how it can positively impact their business alongside a real strong sense of brand, which was very impressive.
We’re well known for our catchy playlists and fun atmosphere at NAF! Salon - our passion for music helps us connect with our clients and keeps our brand alive so we’re very excited to have won the Music Makeover competition. Thank you PRS for Music!
