Two working mothers from Radcliffe-on-Trent have recently picked up an industry award for Best Beauty Salon in the Midlands and are now confident about their chances of winning nationally. Rebecca Dowdeswell and Angela Mapp, who own and manage nkd ( ) waxing respectively, were called onto stage at the prestigious Professional Beauty Regional Awards in Manchester to collect their trophy.
nkd is a waxing and specialist beauty salon which is located on Pelham Street in Nottingham city centre. The thriving business beat off competition from other salons in Nottingham, Tamworth and Stratford-upon-Avon and was praised for its innovation and slick delivery of treatments. As a winner of the Regional Awards, nkd will now automatically be put into the national finals of the Professional Beauty Awards in the “Large Salon of the Year” category. The national award winners will be announced in February 2017.
Talking about the award win, Radcliffe resident Rebecca told The Local News: I created nkd waxing seven years ago after having lived in Brazil and experienced the best and most advanced waxing treatments in the world. I truly believe that we have managed to recreate that in Nottingham and I feel so proud to be named as the best beauty salon in the whole of the Midlands.”
Angela Mapp, who manages the salon, added: “nkd exists to empower our clients by making them feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. We’re not like other salons in that we don’t offer treatments such as hair extensions or fancy nails – we’re more about a kind of secret, hidden beauty which makes our clients feel genuinely great”.
