Sydney salon wins the Professional Beauty Solutions Salon of the Year Award 2021

As COVID-19 cases spiked last year and lockdowns started Professional Beauty Solutions (PBS) were forced to cancel their annual Skin Summit event that plays hosts to the Annual Awards Night Gala Evening. This year nothing was more important to the company than recognising their salon partners with an awards evening – no matter the circumstances. With that in mind, the PBS Salon of the Year Awards went online for its first-ever Virtual Awards ceremony.

Held on Monday evening, 16th August 2021, more than 100 salons, spas and clinic partners from across Australia Zoomed in for the virtual ceremony, and what a night it was. There were tears of joy, lots of laughter and huge smiles on the faces of all the attendees.

The company was thrilled to take a night to appreciate all the hardworking partnered salons and pay tribute to the amazing success they have had over an incredibly trying last 18-months. They have showed nothing but grit, perseverance and strength over the past year-and-a-half, each proving they have more than enough passion and ability to succeed – even through lockdowns, restrictions and financial hardship.

With 18 awards on offer, from Stockist of the Year and Hall of Fame to Highest Growth and Marketing Excellence, the night belonged to The Temple Skincare & Spa, who were crowned PBS 2021 Salon of the Year.

Rene Herald of The Temple Skincare & Spa says of winning Salon of the Year “I am extremely grateful and honoured to have been awarded Salon of the Year from Professional Beauty Solutions. This award is for my team because they have tried very hard to hit targets and exceed expectations to be the selling of the year for PBS. We absolutely love all of the skincare and devices that we have at our Fingertips. We trust in everything that PBS introduced to us and endorse.  Image Skincare, Dermalux, EPN, Pure Fiji and Bio-Therapeutic all make our job easier as we have everything we need to achieve amazing results and experiences for our clients.”

When it comes to choosing their Salon Of The Year winner, PBS look at several metrics, including sales and sales growth, team passion for PBS brands, dedication to training and, finally, innovation with finding ways to not only survive but thrive and grow in a pandemic also a defining factor.
