Family run hair salon, CY Hair, has been crowned the winner of the traditional Harpenden Christmas Window Competition.

Winners were chosen by the 1st Harpenden Brownies together with Mayor Cllr Paul Cousin.

The competition is a festive tradition which has become a well-loved way for businesses with a shop front to show off their creativity.

CY Hair’s highly imaginative window features an ocean scene with comical penguins, made out of recycled plastic bottles, escaping a shark.

Other entrants included second place Threads with an exceptional, sparkling display of their festive goods, and joint third place Rebecca Jade, Serena Hart and Oxfam Books & Music.

Harpenden Town Mayor Cllr Paul Cousin said: “‘I would like to thank everyone for taking part in this year’s Christmas Window Competition. It was great fun judging the displays with the 1st Harpenden Brownies and the quality and standard was very high as usual, it was difficult to choose!

"It was also really good to see local businesses participating and getting into the festive spirit with such colourful and creative ideas. Well done everyone and particular our winner and runners up!"
