Professional Beauty Awards 2016 Salon of the Year Finalists!


We are absolutely delighted to announce that we’ve been shortlisted as a finalist in the for the 2016 Professional Beauty UK Salon of the Year Awards.

The Professional Beauty Awards is the most prestigious and established awards in the beauty, spa, nails and aesthetics industry and recognises those who set the highest of standards and whom have really made a difference in the industry.

We’re really proud to have made it to the final five and are up against some amazing salons in our category – we’re hoping to put Grimsby and the little village of Holton le Clay firmly on the beauty map! In fact we’re the only beauty salon in the final, located north of London so we’re flying the flag for the North.


The first Professional Beauty Awards was held in 1997 and since then it has grown in size and importance within the industry. The competition is open to all beauty salons and spas all over the country so to make it to the final five means we’ve been judged against some of the best salons nationwide, we’re really humbled and proud to have made the final nominations especially as we’ve been open less than 2 years.

We’re looking forward to the final judging stages, which involve two visits from judges to sample our treatments and scrutinise the finer details of everything we do. Whilst we’ll know when one of the judges books in we’ll also have a visit from a mystery shopper who will book in for a treatment sometime in the next couple of months. Our aim is to provide a five star service for each and every one of our clients so we’re always ready to be mystery shopped, in fact we do already mystery shop our girls anyway!

The winner will be announced on Sunday 28th February at a glittering awards gala held at The Brewery, a Grade II listed venue in London. The whole Beauty at the Gate team will be travelling down to London to attend the glamorous event and enjoy the celebrations whatever the outcome, it will be an amazing experience for an amazing team we have here at the BATG!

Have a look at the other amazing finalists in our category. We are looking forward to meeting all the other girls from the other salons and genuinely wish everyone good luck on the night, whoever wins will be fully deserving of it!
