Skin Deep Salon in Elstree wins Guinot Crown Salon status
An Elstree beauty salon is sitting pretty after winning an industry award.
Skin Deep Beauty Clinic, based in Lodge Avenue, was named a Guinot Crown salon in a ceremony hosted by the international skincare chain.
Guinot, which was founded in Paris over 40 years ago, runs 1,200 salons across the country, and only ten per cent of the highest performing receive the award.
Owner Laurie Ardeman, who set up the business in 1992, said she was “delighted” to be recognised.
She said: “We have been contenders in a lot of industry awards over the years, but Crown Salon status is something we’ve always wanted to win.
“We have been a Guinot salon for 20 years, so it is a lovely feeling to get recognition from a brand that’s so highly respected in our industry.”
Ms Ardeman received the award at a ceremony at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham last month.
The salon is known for its success in treating problem skin conditions, such as acne or eczema, and also offers body treatments, tanning, and specialist treatments including Botox and dermal rolling.
It was voted Salon of the Year 2012 at an awards ceremony hosted by the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) last year.
