A spokesperson added: “Whether it’s a hair stylist that’s transformed your barnet from dull to dazzling, a beautician that’s made you look and feel like a movie star, a salon that consistently provides an excellent environment, a talented newcomer to the industry or indeed somebody that’s dedicated their entire life to it – the awards provide a platform to thank those in the beauty industry, letting them know that their good work doesn’t go un-noticed.”

Edge salon owner Julie said: “We are so thrilled to be nominated, especially as the votes come from our clients. It was a lovely surprise,
