A beauty salon near Malmesbury has been rated one of the top five in the UK, beating 21,000 others from across the country, Perfection Health and Beauty, located in Foxley, was shortlisted for a Professional Beauty award last year in the category of Beauty Salon of the Year – Three Rooms or Fewer.

The team from the salon attended a glittering awards ceremony at the London Hilton at the end of last month, with television presenter Claudia Winkleman announcing the winners.

Despite not taking home the award, salon owner Michelle Williams said that she is happy to have come this far and achieved a top five place since their opening in 2011.

She said: “I am so proud of the Perfection team and all of our clients who have supported us along the way since opening.

“I have every intention of entering again next year and bringing the award home to Foxley.”

The Professional Beauty awards is an awards scheme for the beauty aesthetics, nail and spa industries, recognising those who make a real difference to the industry and encouraging their development.

Eve Oxberry, group editor of Professional Beauty magazine, said: “The awards celebrate true excellence in spa and beauty and we have been excited to have some of the best businesses and most talented individuals in the world attending.

“The award recognises the people and organisations that set the standard both in client service and care and also in business management and innovation.”
