The Beauty Box has been awarded Guinot Crown Salon status for 2017.

The award recognises the top salons in the UK and Ireland offering the Guinot product line.

The Beauty Box, on Bondgate Within, is the only salon in Northumberland to be honoured with the accreditation.

Owner Jane Atkin spoke of her delight and praised her hard-working members of staff Lucy Mallaburn, Janene Shaw and Joanne Barlow, as well as Kirstyn Crate, who recently left.

She said: “We are really pleased and really proud to receive Crown Salon status.

“We want to bring the best to Alnwick and this award has been down to a team effort. All of the girls have worked really hard to achieve this.”

The salon has been stocking Guinot products for more than 40 years. In 2016, the Beauty Box was crowned Guinot Regional Business Growth winner.

Angela Miller, Guinot’s business development manager for the North East, praised The Beauty Box.

She said: “It takes a lot of hard work and effort to be awarded Crown status. It is a very special award that only goes to a select number of salons. It is really well deserved and it is a massive achievement.

“It goes to the top 10 per cent of salons who represent everything that we want for the brand; how the salon looks, the standard of treatments, participating in our promotions and the type of equipment used.”

She added that a client visiting a Crown salon can be assured that they will receive the best possible Guinot knowledge, treatments and skincare advice.
