PRESS RELEASE 26th August 2019
WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT THE
2019 AUSTRALIAN BEAUTY INDUSTRY AWARDS
The Star, Sydney, was the place to be on Sunday 25th August, 2019, where around 630 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the annual Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA’s) gala dinner. The evening kicked off with arrival champagne followed by the official welcome from resident host and MC for the evening, Mr Will Fennell. Opening entertainment was proved by the festival inspired ‘Laserman’ who transported a delighted audience to a technological realm of laser lights and trickery to set the stage for an incredible evening ahead.
Following on from last year and with an unprecedented spike in the number of entries, the Beauty Salon/Spa of the year categories were split into State categories for both 4 Treatment rooms or less and 5 Treatment rooms or more. In a grand finale, the two Australian Salon/Spas of the year were awarded, determined by the highest ranking amongst the State winners. Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 4 Treatment Rooms or less was won for the 2nd year running by The Temple Skincare and Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 5 Treatment Rooms or more by La Bella Medispa.
“Once again we outgrew our venue from last year and hopefully have found a home for the ABIA’s for many years to come at The Star which will be able to cater for even more growth year on year.” said owner, Linda Woodhead. “The introduction of State Categories last year proved to be a successful decision with the number of entrants, this year, once again doubling in size. Having a large number of finalists, allows many salons to reap the rewards of recognition and with lots of new names this year we can only imagine the growth that the ABIA’s is still yet to enjoy. To have over 600 people attend the gala, when the awards are only 7 years old, is truly a testament to the industry and we are so honoured to facilitate such an inspiring event.”
