Award Winners in 2018 at The British Hair & Beauty Awards

Originally nominated for three awards, the salon and its team scooped FOUR awards on the evening to round of what has been a fantastic 12 months for The Boutik salon.

Although ambitious, when the salon started out on this exciting journey a year ago they never expected to be receiving award nominations so soon, let alone actually winning them!

Abigail James - Gold | South West

We are proud to announce that Abigail has done it again and won GOLD at The British Hair & Beauty Awards 2018 as Nail Technician of The Year!

‘Throughout 2017-18 my role as nail technician has vastly changed. I am now the owner of The Boutik Salon offering a range of hair and beauty treatments with a team of 9 to motivate. This has been a huge undertaking, but I have maintained my consistency providing a high-quality service for every nail client. I believe in leading from the front and setting the highest standards and winning this award means so much not only to me personally but also to those around me who have helped support and inspire me this year.

Lois Baines - Gold | South West

Yesterday Lois won GOLD at The British Hair & Beauty Awards in the “Lash Specialist of the Year 2018” category. Lois has put in a huge effort over the past year to advance her training and skills within Lashes.

‘Although fairly new to the beauty industry I have worked tirelessly in providing my clients with the best quality service and treatments I can. Since Dec 2017 I moved to a full-time position with the salon and this has allowed me to focus 100% on growing my clients and improving my trade.

Before starting this journey, I felt that I was unmotivated and was lacking confidence. I have put a lot of time, effort, and personal expense into expanding my skills & learning from the best. I love my job, my clients and my salon... and being a lash artist!’

An unexpected but fabulous achievement for Lois who won overall GOLD at The British Hair & Beauty Awards in the “Lash Specialist of the Year 2018” category.

‘Lois fully deserves this award and as a salon we are very proud of her achievements. She still won’t probably accept what we’ve always believed… but she’s fantastic what she does! Within the past 18 months Lois has developed a huge client base from nothing, and her client are always very complimentary of her work. We are very proud… on wards and upwards for this rising star!’
