A salon hopes to retain its title for the second year in a row at this year’s prestigious beauty industry award ceremony.

Sophistikaty's in Prudhoe has been nominated two awards this year in the North East Hair and Beauty Awards 2024, which will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2024, at Rainton Arena, Houghton Le spring.

Last year, the salon won Best Salon of the Year 2023 and hope to keep the crown for this year, as they are once again nominated for the Best Salon and for Salon Team of the Year.

Owner Katy Denton said: "We are honoured and delighted to have been nominated again this year, but this year for two awards!

"The two awards are hair and beauty salon of the year, and salon team of the year.

"Winning 2023’s hair and beauty salon of the year still hasn’t sunk in yet, it’s a dream come true, and we are still on a high!

"The skill, talent, hard work and passion within the north east hair and beauty industry and awards is just outstanding, and we are absolutely over the moon to be given the chance to be part of the awards for a second year running.

"The nominations and support mean the world to us; we can never thank all of our supporters enough.

"Any individual and salon that have been nominated truly deserve the recognition and we wish everyone involved the very best of luck."
