The organisers of the Professional Beauty Awards say –

“Willow Beauty in Ballymena has been recognised as one of the leading beauty treatment providers in the country by being announced as a finalist for Boutique Beauty Salon of the Year at the Professional Beauty Awards 2018.

The national awards are the most prestigious and established in the country for the beauty, spa, nails and aesthetics markets. They seek to recognise those who go above and beyond as a beauty business and make a significant difference to the industry.

Even reaching the finals in the awards marks out a business as one the country’s most impressive salons, while a win can establish them on a global scale as a truly exceptional beauty business. As well as raising a salon’s profile, making the shortlist also gives a boost to team morale. It also provides an opportunity to reflect on their achievements.

The Boutique Beauty Salon of the Year category seeks to celebrate those small salons that think big, with exciting ideas and polished services that allow them to compete on a grand scale.

The shortlist for spa and salon categories is made up of the winners and particularly high-scoring finalists of the Professional Beauty Regional Awards. These were held in October 2017. Finalists will now go on to be judged again in a second round, which includes interviews and ‘mystery shopper’ style judging visits.

Winners will be announced at a glamorous black-tie dinner on February 25th at Tobacco Dock in London. Here the winners of the World Spa & Wellness Awards will also be revealed. As well as providing an opportunity to celebrate, the event also allows guests to network with the world’s leading spas, salons and product houses. It will also help to grow their industry community and develop professional relationships that last a lifetime.”

“We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for the Professional Beauty Awards. It’s a massive achievement for a small Ballymena beauty salon and we’ve not even been open 2 years yet! The Professional Beauty Awards are like the ‘Oscars’ of the beauty industry. Needless to say we’re just a bit excited about our trip to London!!”
