PB Therapist of the Year finalists announced
The shortlist for the final category in the Professional Beauty Awards has now been decided. We had more entries in the Therapist category than we had for any other category of the awards - and in fact more entries than we have ever had in any category in the history of the Professional Beauty Awards! So our six finalists can be truly proud that they shine out as some of the nation's best beauty professionals. The finalists in the Therapist of the Year category - Sponsored by Decléor - are: Julie Angela Brown (Zen Lifestyle, Edinburgh) Emma Clark (Epitome Health and Beauty, Hertfordshire) Jo Givens (Liz Earle Skincare & Treatments, London) Deborah Anne King (Angel Loving Care, West Lothian) Faye Pearson (Eastthorpe Hall, Yorkshire) Alison Smith (Skin and Tonic Beauty Salon, Hertfordshire) The shortlist for the other 11 categories was announced two weeks ago but the sheer volume of entries for this particular category meant we needed to allow our judges a little extra time to read every one of the entries in detail. Our shortlisted therapists will all attend a trade test in London where they will be observed while they perform two treatments. Each therapist (and each of their models) will then be interviewed and scored individually by a panel of independent judges to decide the winner.
