Wild celebrations followed the victory of the Eve Adam spa in this most hotly contested of categories last year.
Our judges really had their work cut-out to select a winner from another highly competitive shortlist.
In the end, however, they plumped for the delightful beauty retreat, in Catherine Street.
But with so many hair and beauty salons, hairdressers and barbers in St Albans this year’s competition will again be a close run thing.
Eve Adam Owner Sally Watkins, who opened the business eight years ago, spoke of her shock. She said: “It was a total surprise for us to us. We were happy just to be nominated.
“This is the result of so much hard work by my team and the massive effort they put in to make the business a success. It is all about quality of service in our industry and I am very proud of them all. We hope to be back next year.”
The category is sponsored by the St Albans and Harpenden Review.
You can nominate retailers in one of six categories – fashion and accessories; specialist shops; markets trader; restaurants and cafes, food and drink and hair and beauty.
All nominations should be received by midnight on May 11. After this date our team of mystery shoppers will hit the streets, putting each and every retailer to the test. All nominated retailers will also be sent a window poster so they can blow their own trumpets.
The competition is a joint initiative between the Review, St Albans District Council, St Albans Civic Society and St Albans District Chamber of Commerce.
To nominate a retailer text the name of the trader you want to nominate by texting the word ‘retailer’ followed by the name and address of the business to 80360. Texts cost 50p.
Or simply call 09011510856 and leave your nomination and details when prompted.
You can also nominate by filling out the form in this week’s Review or by clicking here and filling out our online nomination form. You can also email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
