Professional Beauty Awards 2012 – Winners

The winners were announced during a star-studded gala dinner on Sunday 4th March 2012 at the Hilton Park Lane, London.
Hosted by comedian Rufus Hound, the night kicked off with an exclusive champagne reception, followed by a three-course meal then awards and dancing. The event gives winners the chance to network with other leading spas, salons, product houses and many worthwhile business relationships have arisen from the event over the years.
Pure Spa, The Potting Shed, Bodylines and The Cosmetic Skin Clinic were among the 12 winners of the Professional Beauty Awards 2012.

Every spa, salon and nail salon on the shortlist has two visits: one from an announced visitor who assesses the service and interviews the owner and another from a mystery shopper to ensure that there is complete fairness in all stages of the judging process.
