The IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards is the biggest event in all beauty-lovers’ diaries, and this year’s ceremony promises to be better than ever. On March 10, Irish beauty professionals will gather for dinner, entertainment, prizes and surprises as we celebrate their hard work and talent.

Voting

Our shortlist was formulated by an expert panel of business and beauty experts, all of whom agonised over the final draft for weeks. Since the shortlist went live, you’ve been voting in your droves – but now time is running out.

my first Business of Beauty Awards

Voting closes tomorrow night, Wednesday 27, at 11:59 pm – that means any votes cast from 00.00 on Thursday morning will not be counted.

As always, many of the nominees are neck-and-neck. If you want your favourite salons, clinics, and beauty professionals to be in with a chance of winning, make sure to cast your votes for them NOW.

Rules of voting

  • To preserve the integrity of the vote and to avoid spam, the voting process is now as follows: users are allocated one vote per email address, per device, per day.
  • You can conduct competitions/giveaways to encourage voting. All is fair in love and BOB.
  • Getting a ‘sorry that email doesn’t appear to be valid’ error message? Make sure to manually type your email address via Google Chrome. The Safari browser has an ‘auto-function’ for entering email addresses, which won’t allow the vote to come through.

A more thorough list of the ‘dos and don’ts of voting’ is available here.

On the night

Now in its sixth year, the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards will take place in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road in Dublin 4. From 6:30 pm, guests will arrive in their finest evening wear, where they’ll indulge in delicious dinner and drinks.

TV host Darren Kennedy will be our MC on the night, announcing incredible spot prizes and entertainment – not to mention the winners of each award. Then, afterwards, there will be a lavish after-party in House, Leeson St that guests won’t want to miss.

The awards night is always described as “wild” and “absolute mayhem” – but in the best possible way. If you’d like to join us for the celebration, click here.
