The judges are on the lookout for the top spas, beauty and hair salons, barbers, dentists, aesthetic doctors and nurse prescribers, and training institutions that are doing something special. There are 20 categories to enter.
Sue Maguire, Head Salon Business Advisor at Phorest, said: “As the entry deadline for The Herald Look Awards is approaching I would like to remind everyone to make sure to enter their submissions.
“Here in Phorest we see every day how much work, dedication, time and love goes into everything you do. You are the professionals who are continuously contributing to the legacy of the Scottish hair and beauty industry and it’s incredibly important that outstanding achievements are recognised.”
The Defacto Beauty Salon of the year, Hair Salon of the year and Best Cosmetic Dentist Award, sponsored by Defacto salons, will recognise the salons in Scotland that have the wow factor.
If you have a successful salon, that offers the best customer service and on trend services then we want to hear from you today.
Marcus McLeod, Director, Defacto salons, said: “With the deadline approaching fast, we would encourage all salons to get involved in this year’s Look Awards.
“These awards are different to others in that you are judged. It is not a popularity contest so any salon who believes that they provide the best possible service should enter now.
“Cosmetic dentists, this is a non-dental industry award and highlights your practice with the public. Being seen and recognised by your peer group is great, but being recognised in a wider audience encourages new patients in your direction. Don’t leave it to the last moment, enter now.”
Chris Christoforou, training director at Beautiful Brows and Lashes Professionals, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Beauty Salon of the Year and Cosmetic Clinic of the Year categories at The Herald Look Awards for 2016.
“Both these categories will highlight quality practices and services combined with excellent customer service. We highly recommend you to enter these categories today if this applies to you and showcase your salon and clinics. Don’t miss the deadline.”
The Best Barbers Award, Sponsored by MHFed will recognise the best barbers in Scotland that are setting trends and capturing client’s interest by offering stylish styles in a quirky setting.
Adam Sloan, CEO, Mens Hairdressing Federation /MHFed, said: “It’s very important to all the Scottish Barbers to get their entries in for the Best Barber Award.
“You will win this prestigious award and will be performing on the Mhfed stand at Salon International London in October alongside Britain’s top art team the “Young Feds” who will share their knowledge and skills with you.”
Best Start up Award, sponsored by City of Glasgow College, pays tribute to all the new businesses in Scotland that are two years old or less. Industry Academy Curriculum Head Elspeth McCallum said: “City of Glasgow College are delighted to be sponsoring the Best Start Up Award again this year. We feel that this award recognises all those who have newly qualified and are showing the industry how talented they really are.”
Aesthetic doctors, dentists and nurse prescribers will also be awarded across four categories in the Aesthetics section.
Christine Allan, hospital director at The Edinburgh Clinic, said: “We encourage the best calibre of entrants to demonstrate and showcase professionalism within the industry, and to highlight the importance of compliance with the new regulations.
“Participation in these awards contributes to highlighting professional achievements within the newly regulated aesthetics industry, and individual’s commitment to keeping up to date with the latest treatments available.”
For online media savvy businesses there are the accolades, Best use of Social Media and Marketing Campaign of the Year, and Training Institution of the Year for the industry’s training experts.
