The most important night in beauty…
Attention beauty fanatics! If you’re not familiar with BOB (IMAGE Magazine’s Business of Beauty Awards), it’s a big glitter ball of an event, to celebrate and honour the best beauty brands and the individuals in the industry, all of whom are true masters of their trade.
With 12 varying categories, this year we’ve expanded our reach to include best overall salons, spas and skin clinics. Plus, we’ve added a Best Beauty Innovator category to pay homage to the individuals who tirelessly drive new brands and keep the beauty thrills coming every year. The individual winners are voted for by the public on bob.image.ie (if you haven’t yet voted, get on it!) and already, we’ve had record numbers of fans supporting their glam squads in their droves.
And more importantly, given all the research and development that the world’s biggest beauty houses continuously undertake, this year we’ve asked our Beauty Awards judging panel, which boasts 16 Irish and UK industry icons, from dermatologists to session stylists, make-up artists to beauty therapists, to vote for the Most Innovative Brand in Skincare, Haircare, Body Care, Make-up and Most Innovative Irish Beauty Brand too.
The winning brands and individuals will be announced at a red carpet awards ceremony on March 22 in Dublin’s DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. The effervescent Darren Kennedy (of UTV’s This Morning show) will host the event, and members of the IMAGE editorial team and the Beauty Awards judging panel will be presenting the awards.
We’ll be kicking off with a cocktail and bubbles reception at 6.30pm, followed by a three-course dinner, oodles of prizes, and an über-luxury goodie bag for all attendees, lots of music and dancing afterwards, plus a sneaky preview copy of the 2015 Beauty Awards supplement too.
Of course, we’d love you to join us for the event. It’s a great excuse to put the heels and lippy on, network with the beauty industry’s most influential, and hopefully even take away an award while you’re at it. I’ve attached information with further details, but purchasing tickets or tables for the day is easy – just go to bob.image.ie to book your places now.
Hope to see you on the evening!
Liz Dwyer, IMAGE Beauty Editor
