The Midlands edition of the English Beauty Industry Awards 2023 celebrated the region’s beauty sector at a glamorous event held on Sunday at The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre.
The event recognised and honoured professionals, salons, spas, and beauty businesses that have demonstrated excellence in the industry.
Of the dozens of nominees, four Shropshire businesses took the top spots in their categories.

Posting on Facebook, Laura from Enlightenment said: “I can not quite believe it. It really is thanks to the support I’ve had that I was on that stage last night. I’m so lucky to have the support from all my amazing clients. I love my job and you all make my job worth while.”
