OMG Hair And Beauty salon, in Faringdon Road, has been crowned Best In The South West in for the third annual English Hair and Beauty Awards.

The event took place on at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel and OMG, had been shortlisted in the Best Salon category and was also a south west finalist. Salon directors and sisters, Vanda and Becky Tanner were delighted with the achievement.

Vanda said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised as the Best In The South West. “It’s such great news for OMG and positive news for Swindon. “More than 10,000 votes were initially received across all the 20 awards, so to get to the finals was a major feat, let alone winning the regional winners’ title of Best In The South West. “Myself and my sister would like to thank all the team at OMG for working so hard and for being the best at what they do.”

The awards provide a platform to thank those in the hair and beauty industry, letting them know that their good work does not go unnoticed. Rachel Brown, of event organisers Creative Oceanic, said: “The competition was heated this year as we had finalists coming from all over England.”
