Hundreds of readers’ votes and scores of entries from across Portsmouth have been tallied up to make this year’s shortlist for The News’ Hair and Beauty Awards 2016.

This year has been the biggest and the best year for entries in the awards’ six-year history.

Excitement is building ahead of the ceremony on Saturday, July 2, at which the winners of 14 categories will be announced.

Long-awaited tickets for the night, which will see a three-course meal, awards ceremony and party take place at the Portsmouth Guildhall, will go on sale on Monday.

Liz Parker, events co-ordinator, said: ‘We have been overwhelmed by the response to this year’s awards. Not only do we have some excellent sponsors on board, the night is looking to be the best yet.

‘There’s a real buzz and excitement and I can’t wait to see everyone on the night in their glad rags, really partying and celebrating the best of the industry.’
