The Professional Beauty Awards gave British salons and spas the chance to shine with the inaugural Professional Beauty Regional Awards. It was a winning night for London spa, ESPA Life at Corinthia as they scooped a top award.

A panel of independent industry experts judged all the finalists before mystery clients put them through their paces, experiencing treatments and reporting back to the expert judges. Mark Moloney, Managing Director of Professional Beauty comments, “The British beauty industry is world renowned. To be a winner is a huge achievement and the judges were wowed by the standard of the treatments, which were delivered with exceptional technical expertise at ESPA Life. We salute them in their success and wish them all the best for the Professional Beauty Awards next year.”

Collecting the award, Spa Manager of ESPA Life at Corinthia, Rachel Burke said “It feels absolutely amazing to win this award! For us, it's all about service and the people. We're a beautiful spa and we love what we do, but it's nothing without the fantastic staff and our lovely clients. A big thank you to Professional Beauty for a great judging process and well done to our whole team!”

“It's so important to get recognised and honoured within the industry” comments Heaven’s International Business Development Manager, Liza Ward. “We are so pleased to sponsor this award and absolutely thrilled for ESPA Life to win, an extremely deserving winner!”

Manchester’s stunning The Monastery hosted the glittering ceremony that saw celebrity host Rick Edwards present the winners with their trophy. As the excitement of winning takes hold, it’s only the start of their journey as they are now automatically entered into the national Professional Beauty Awards, to be held in London in February 2017.

The first ever Regional Professional Beauty Awards were supported by Alumier MD, BTL Aesthetics, Elemis, Hair no more, Heaven by Deborah Mitchell, iiaa, INK London, Katherine Daniels Cosmetics, Megawhite and Sesderma.
