Helen Turnock, owner of Velvet Beauty Studio, swept the board at the British Hair and Beauty Awards, after being crowned National Skincare Specialist of the Year, Regional Beauty Therapist of the Year, and being announced a Silver runner-up in the National Waxing Expert of the Year.

“These were only the second awards I have ever entered since coming into the industry over 10 years ago, and I’m not ashamed to say I screamed when I found out I had won!” Helen said.

“After having to close the doors to the business in March, it is a huge confidence and morale boost to have been recognised in this way, and I hope will help build confidence alongside the many Covid safe procedures I have put in place for my returning clients, without which none of this would have been possible.”

The British Hair and Beauty Awards are one of the most prestigious online awards for the hair, beauty, nails and spa industry, recognising those who make a real difference and encouraging their development and hard work throughout the year.

Judging took place over 3 rounds with numerous judges in order for the titles to be awarded, and included review of customer testimonials, supporting evidence and mystery shopper visits.
