We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our Founder Kate has been recognised for her ongoing work in supporting the Scottish Hair and Beauty Industry throughout the pandemic.
Kate has been shortlisted for The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) Industry Expert Supporting People Working in Beauty UK.
Lesley Blair, chair of BABTAC comments: “The restrictions have had a devastating effect on our sector, which employs around 300,000 people in the UK. Life is incredibly tough for people working in beauty right now, so we’ve created these awards to applaud their strength and resilience in what has been an extremely difficult time.”
Judging for the selected categories will be done through a panel vote. Our panel will be comprised of both internal and independent judges to ensure fairness. We are absolutely delighted that Skincare Guru and Award winning Author, (and amazing BABTAC member) Caroline Hirons, has kindly agreed to take time out of her crazy schedule to be included on our judging panel.
Kate says: “Thank you to Babtac for shortlisting me for this year’s Industry Expert Supporting People Working in Beauty UK. We’ve lobbied government, launched campaigns, gave advice but most of all we’ve been there for each other. All 1.5k of us.
I’ve loved every minute of running our support group, at times its been heart-breaking but im so proud of our group members and how they continue to support each other through these challenging times.”
Winners will be announced on the 12th of March.
