HAIR Review has proven to be a cut above the rest this year with the popular salon crowned Gympie's Business of the Year at last night's Chamber of Commerce Business Awards gala.

A packed house of almost 250 of the region's business and community leaders turned out to celebrate the region's best, brightest and upcoming business stars.

The Mary St business owned by Carolann Verity beat three other competitors - Farmer and Sun, Kilkivan Bush Camping and Caravan Park and Jacaranda Family Dental - for the stop spot.
