A Professional Beauty Award is a sign of excellence, recognition and a worthy accolade that will give additional edge over competitors and help boost individual and company profiles. 2011 Winners and Results.
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.
It is these independent reports that are then judged by an independent panel of experts during a deliberation day.
Each individual therapist, nail professional and make-up artist is judged via a trade test and a panel interview.
