A BEAUTY salon is celebrating after being shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Rejoy Beauty Salon, in Cockerton, has reached the finals of The North East Beauty Industry Awards 2019 under the category Five Star Beauty Salon.

The salon's staff will be heading to a glamorous awards ceremony at The Grand Hotel Gosforth Park, in Newcastle, on Sunday September 22 as the awards aim to celebrate the best of the beauty industry in the North East.

Last year, the team made the finals for best boutique salons in the North-East at the 2018 Professional Beauty Regional Awards.

Erin Harper, Salon director, said: "We are incredibly grateful for this nomination and strive to make our clients proud.’’

Charlene Young, Campaign Manager of The North East Beauty Industry Awards 2019 said: “The North East Beauty Industry Awards 2019 are honoured by Creative Oceanic but voted for by the public.

“The awards aim to acknowledge everyone in the beauty sector that provides impeccable services, inspiring and innovative treatments that really work.

“The beauty industry plays a vital role in the country’s economy and these awards aim to provide a platform to thank those who have dedicated their whole career in this field, letting them know that their amazing work doesn’t go un-noticed.

“We wish the finalists the best of luck and we can’t wait to welcome all our guests and deliver a memorable event.”
