A SALON in Malvern has bounced back after a difficult two years with an award win.

Belle Beauty in Worcester Road has been given the status of Guinot Crown Elite Salon 2022.

This is awarded to salons with high standards and service and his handed out by the skincare brand each year.

Salon owner Lucy Watkins said the award recognised the hard work of staff.

She said: "It’s been such a hard couple of years with Covid so we are so excited to be going from strength to strength and have taken on three additional members of staff since lockdown.

"The local council and our supportive customers really have allowed us to continue as a successful salon and the staff and I are so grateful."

Guinot is a heritage skincare brand, delivering bespoke skincare prescriptions and patented treatment methods.

Belle Beauty has stocked Guinot for 13 years, with the Elite Salon status awarded for "flawless principles in environment, customer care and treatment expertise."
