This year, the event twirls in a fresh gust of glamour as it shares the stage with Salon International, a respected congregation of hair treatment maestros. As the autumn leaves flutter down, the curtains will rise, unveiling the absolute cream of beauty and nail brands, avant-garde treatments, enlightening educational events, and endless networking opportunities.
What’s Happening at Olympia Beauty 2023?
The Olympia Beauty Show 2023 brings the heat with three exciting competitions at the forefront, giving attendees a chance to showcase their skills and compete with the best in the industry.
Firstly, the National Massage Championship (NMC) is back for its fifth year, inviting massage therapists and bodyworkers to compete across six categories. With a registration fee of £129 per category, participants will be demonstrating their divine massage techniques and competing for the top spot. There’s a discount for those entering multiple categories, too, so the best can be seen more than once! For a full breakdown of the competition and the schedule, click here!
Next is the Nailympia, the go-to competition for the top nail artists looking to display their creativity. The competition has both online and on-site categories this year, covering various themes like ‘Runway Nails – The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Flat Art – Speakeasy – Prohibition’ to the usual culprits like Gel Polish Manicure, L&P Sculpture and Salon Nails.
Finally, we have the Olympia Beauty Competition. In collaboration with The Smart Group, Olympia Beauty is offering a chance for participants at the event to win a SMARTDiode PRO worth £16,950! This prize is ideal for salons and clinics looking to offer more efficient and comfortable laser hair removal treatments. To enter, participants must register for Olympia Beauty, visit The Smart Group Stand 1016 on either 15 or 16 October, and enter the competition.
