IT CERTAINLY was a beautiful day as a salon won the ultimate beauty salon accolade.
The Westbourne Beauty Clinic, in East Street, Emsworth, was named beauty salon of the year at The News’ Hair and Beauty awards.
The annual awards returned for the fourth year at Portsmouth Guildhall on Saturday night.
More than 350 people made the night one to remember.
Staff from the salon and owner Laura Cox went to the prestigious ceremony to celebrate being nominated.
Laura, 29, said: ‘It’s all because of my team.’
The Westbourne Beauty Clinic was set up three years ago and it has gone from strength to strength, so much so that its second salon will be opening in Westbourne later this month.
It was the second year at the awards for the salon as it came runner-up in the beauty salon of the year category at last year’s awards.
So there was delight that the salon had gone the extra mile to take the top spot.
Laura said: ‘It’s customer service and dedication and offering a wide range of treatments that makes us stand out. We believe in bringing the best products and treatments down from salons in London.’
‘It’s exciting to get an award but it’s all down to having a good team. We all love the beauty industry, it’s our life.
‘Awards like these are really important as they keep the standard of the beauty industry in the south high.’
Q Hair and Beauty, Chichester, came runner up in the same category.
The News will be featuring winners every day this week.
