The Beauty Room in Nottingham Road, Eastwood,is in line for a prestigious award after making the grand finals of a national competition.

Salon owner Lauren Halley and her talented team of beauticians will be putting their skills to the test when they take on four other finalists in the Scratch Stars Nail Salon of the Year competiton 2014.

Only last year The Beauty Room made its mark by winning the finals of the Fake Bake English Hair and Beauty Salon of the Year championships which took place at the Midlands Hotel in Manchester, and Lauren is hoping that they can go on to complete a notable double success.

Standing in the way of a “ massive local success” will be other salons which have made the Scratch Stars finals including prestigious opponents representing the mighty Harrods!

Harrods Urban Retreat; Body Lines in Kent; Chelsea Day Spa in London; and Glam R Salon in Surrey, are the Eastwood salon’s top opposition, all five will come under scrutiny from a number of “mystery shoppers” who in turn will be feeding back their findings to a selected team of expert judges in March.

Lauren, who lives in Selston and attended Matthew Holland School before graduating from White Rose College, took on her business challenge in 2006 and is proud at what has been achieved .

“ I owe so much to my “girls”, namely Amie Flowers, Katie Humphrey, Emma Carter, Sarah Yates, Charlotte Berresford, and Jessica Webster, who make up a fantastic team.

“The Beauty Room Salon has made giant strides since its inception in 2006 and we are proud to be Nottinghamshire’s flag bearers In this nationwide competition” said Lauren.

The winning salon will be announced on Sunday, May 11, at an awards ceremony which is taking place at the Café De Paris in London.
