Scotland's largest salon group, Rainbow Room International, celebrated another successful year with their 25th annual congress at Airth Castle Hotel.
Teams representing all twelve salons descended on the luxurious castle in Falkirk for a day of team building and inspiring trend presentations from Suzie McGill and the Rainbow Room International artistic team.
In the evening, awards were handed out across a wealth of categories ranging from creative work to management and training.
Company directors Alan and Linda Stewart said: "The congress is a wonderful event which really builds team spirit and gets everyone motivated for the year ahead. Each year the standard gets higher and our judges find it more and more difficult to call. We recognise not only winners but those who are continuously improving as we believe each individual member of our team is special and deserves their own particular recognition of success."
