A BEAUTICIAN’s salon is celebrating after receiving five top awards at a prestigious national event.

Natalie Wood, who started the Pink Shed salon from scratch in 2016, has spoken of her delight and paid tribute to her staff after their success at the British Beauty Awards.

The salon, in Stutton Road, Brantham, earned a gold award in the South East Employer of the Year category while also picking up three silver awards as Entrepreneur of the Year, Top Rated Salon of the Year and Excellence in Customer Service.

It also landed a bronze award in the Best New Business category.

Natalie added: “There has been a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this point, but to be recognised in such a fantastic way by your peers makes it all worthwhile.

“We hoped we might pick up something, but we never expected to win five awards.
