The best of the best beauty therapists frocked up for the inaugural AST (Advanced Skin Technology) Skin Masters Awards.

The gala awards night, which recognised the achievements of salon owners and aestheticians from all over the country, we held to coincide with the Beauty Expo weekend.

The black tie event saw ball gowns and bow ties aplenty at the Sheraton on The Park for a three course dinner, followed by plenty of drinking and dancing.

Managing director Heather Harrison spoke about how proud she was of the AST family before the awards ceremony kicked off.

AST distributes professional brands including Aspect, Cosmedix, Skinbetter Science, Societe, Colorescience, Skinpen and more.
