Professional Beauty unveil 2018 winners

The Professional Beauty Awards have announced their 2018 winners, with Edinburgh's Zen Lifestyle recognised as one of the leading beauty treatment providers in the country after winning two awards.

The salon's Hanover location was awarded ‘Large Beauty Salon of the Year' whilst its sister salon in Bruntsfield was named ‘Boutique Beauty Salon of the Year'. Both categories celebrate beauty businesses that provide a personalised service to every client.

Eve Oxberry, Head of Editorial for Professional Beauty magazine, says:

“Being crowned as a winner at the Professional Beauty Awards is an accolade to be incredibly proud of. The judging process is one the most rigorous in the industry, to ensure that every winner provides an outstanding customer experience. We are committed to raising standards within the beauty industry and would like to thank all of the winners, and especially Zen Lifestyle, for showcasing what excellence looks like.”

Fiona and Kieron Fowley of Zen Lifestyle, who collected the awards, commented:

“These awards are massively important to the industry and so to win just means everything to us. The team put 100% into the salons day in and day out and we do so much training to ensure the very best for our clients. We have a strong team and the culture they display, the values and positive attitude they all have is tremendous; and we couldn't do what we do without them. They are the most awesome team.”
