The newly launched Sofitel Sydney in Darling Harbour was the place to be on Saturday 8th September, where 150 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the Professional Beauty Solutions (PBS) 3rd Annual Awards Gala Dinner.

The evening kicked off with champagne on arrival, canapes and the beautiful Fijian singers from Pure Fiji entertaining guests with their traditional Fijian songs and guitar playing.

With the hundreds of salon owners and beauty therapists mingling and sharing their experiences of Beauty Expo earlier that day, the evening’s MC, Dani Lombard from Dani Lombard PR started the official festivities by welcoming PBS’ salons, partners and international guests including Youngblood’s international brand ambassador and makeup artist Philip Luque, Bestow Beauty founder Janine Tait, Image Skincare’s international educator Dawn Clifford, and Dermalux’s Managing Director Dale Needham. Guests were treated to a 3-course meal while the talented White Tree Band provided the music for the evening.  A montage of Tanya Hennesy’s comical “things people say to beauty therapists & things people say to spray tanners” was also shared on the big screen, before guests where surprised with a video message from Hennesy herself, wishing everyone a great night and best of luck to all the nominees.

However, the night belonged to The Beauty Spot, an elegant and tranquil salon centrally located in the heart of Swan Hill, Victoria.  With a total of 9 nominations across all categories, they took home the prestigious Salon of the Year Award for 2018. Salon owner, Christine Ewart took to Instagram to share the salons latest achievement “PBS Salon of the Year 2018! Can you believe that? What an amazing night! And year! And 7 years!”
