Professional Beauty North was an exclusive trade event held earlier this week, at the award-winning exhibition arena Manchester Central.
The event catered for anyone who is involved or interested in the beauty industry – from student therapists, to salon owners, to even the beauty brands themselves. I was lucky enough to attend this event, and I can say that it was an amazing opportunity for people to learn new skills, build their businesses and to network with some top industry insiders!
I attended the Make-Up Competition awards ceremony, and I was very impressed at how well the student beauty therapists had done! My favourite ended up in third place – her entry was a girl dressed in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen-esque white puff dress with flowers sewn on, and of course her make-up was amazing too!
Here are the winners:
1st Place – Zandra Kabat (who chose to do the Fantasy theme)
2nd Place – Stephanie Clark (who chose to do the Fright Night theme)
3rd Place – Amy Baxter (who chose to do the Fashion/Catwalk theme)
There were also some really good deals at the event, and I ended up buying some Lauren’s Way Dream Rollers (which I should add DO work – there will be a review to follow), as well as a Depilator and some Helen E Cosmetics!
Overall I really enjoyed the event! It was a great place to network with like-minded people, and to see what amazing beauty products were on offer. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who is interested in the beauty industry!
