December 1, 2023

We are so excited for this year’s much-anticipated beauty event taking place Sunday September 18 in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4. These awards truly celebrate the experts who we firmly believe can turn us from fine to fabulous – the heroes who make our eyes sparkle, our bodies glow, our skin shine and our brows arch; hairstylists who can make heads turn with their crafty cutting, creative colouring and brilliant blow-drying. Plus, we list the salons, clinics and spas where miracles are performed on a daily basis. We love them, and we think you do too. Now you can reserve your place at the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards, hosted by IMAGE group contributing editor Melanie Morris and the utterly fabulous Darren Kennedy, plus some surprise special guests!

Visit here or email Simone to book your ticket for this annual sell-out event.


Without further ado, allow us to introduce the shortlist for the 2022 IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards, sponsored by FIAT, Boots, Kerry Hanaphy, OGX Haircare, Platinum Hair Extensions, Spotlight Oral Care, VOYA and Shiseido.
