The team at Fallachi Hair like to step it up a notch when it comes to end of year celebrations.
After just recently re-branding as "Fallachi Hair" (formerly Tomars Hairdressing), this was our first Awards Night as Fallachi Hair!
It was a night to remember and not only celebrate the year, but reward our amazing team for their great work this year.
Every year, our awards night brings together both of our local Berwick hair salons that we operate:
Fallachi Hair for the ladies and New York Barbers for the gentleman.
The 2019 Awards Night was our biggest one yet with both teams and their partners in attendance, our business associates who have supported us for many years, as well as some long-time loyal customers of Fallachi Hair who have been visiting us for 20+ years!
The Awards Night takes inspiration from the AFL Brownlow Night. Guests arrived dressed to impress and enjoyed a three-course dinner while award winners were announced and the year that has been was reviewed, specifically highlighting the funny moments of the year which was a team favorite.

The first award to be announced was The Brand Award. Chosen by owner Mario Fallace, The Brand Award is presented to an individual who, throughout 2019, has displayed Trust, Strength, Consistency and Leadership – thus representing the brand in a commendable way.
Mario says: "It is one of the hardest awards to choose, as both of our teams display these qualities which is why they are amazing teams. So, it requires me to look even deeper to find something that stands out. I try to have an even rotation each year and it gives our team something to strive for. But they all know how much I appreciate each and every one of their inputs!"
This year's Brand Award was sponsored by Alfaparf Milano Australia. We once again extend our appreciation to them for always supporting us!
For 2019, The Fallachi Hair Brand Award was awarded to Emily! An amazing job by Emily for her great work and achievements this year.
Next to be announced was The Staff Recognition Award. This award is voted by the team. Each team member has given 1-3 votes to fellow team members based on who they feel has contributed, inspired, improved, been a leader and everything in between to be awarded this recognition award.
This is where a big part of the AFL Brownlow Night inspiration comes from. Each team member's votes from 1-3 are broken down into rounds and the votes are counted that way.
The winner, taking home her 2nd award for the night, was Emily with 17 votes!
2nd: Jessica - 9 Votes
3rd: Danielle and Bianca - 6 Votes

The final award to be announced was a NEW introduction to our Awards Night: The Hall of Fame Award. This is for team members who have provided long service and contribution to the business. They will be inducted into the Hall of Fame and awarded with this prestigious award.
2 new team members will be inducted into the Hall of Fame every year.
The Hall of Fame award is sponsored by our good friends at iCandy scissors Australia and we also thank them for their continued support. If you need a pair of hairdressing or barbering scissors - iCandy is the way to go. You can check them out here: https://icandyscissors.com.au/
This year, Christy and Danielle were inducted into the Fallachi Hair Hall of Fame.
Christy, who finished work a few years ago to raise her family, did her apprenticeship with us over 20 years ago, becoming an amazing hairdresser and leader of our team. It was an honour for us to have Christy come back so we could award her with this!

Danielle, who only just finished up at the end of last month as she prepares herself to welcome her baby into the world, also started her apprenticeship as her first-ever job, and over 16 years later she has become a superb hairdresser and leader of our current team.

It was a pleasure for us to induct both Christy and Danielle into the Fallachi Hair Hall of Fame for all of their hard work, dedication, and commitment to our team all these years.
After the formalities were finished it was time to celebrate and have a dance!
We would like to thank and congratulate both of our spectacular teams for their amazing work throughout the year, as well as our awesome clients who are so loyal and support us each year! We have big things coming for Fallachi Hair, so stay tuned!
