On Sunday, I went to the INAA Scottish Hair & Beauty Awards at the kind invitation of the lovely Alison Jameson Consultants. The awards are organised by I Need An Appointment (the online salon appointment booking site).

I was invited to join the Press table at the event (as I am also Editor of Twinkle Style & Travel Magazine); alongside PR Alison Jameson; Sarah from Scottish Beauty Blog; Laura & Gill from STV; Bev from The Daily Record; The Scottish Sun; and Dawn from blog Dawniepopsies.

I had a great time at the awards honouring Scotland’s hair and beauty salon talent. We had a delicious 4-course dinner, and were entertained by a Take That tribute band, and DJ Jodie Harsh.

I’ve popped a list of the award winners below; so you know where to go when you next need a pamper:
