An Ammanford salon has been recognised with an award at a national wedding awards ceremony.

Nue Hair and Beauty Clinic, situated on Hall Street, scooped the Hair and Make-Up Specialist of the Year award at the Welsh Wedding Awards 2019.

Salon manager Emily Williams told The Guardian: “We found out we were shortlisted for the award around Christmas time.

“We won best in South West Wales Hair and Make Up of the Year and then we went on to win the Best Hair and Make Up in Wales.

“We were all so shocked to win and business has shot up since we won the award.

“We had five wedding bookings last weekend alone.

“It just shows that just because we’re from a small town like Ammanford it doesn’t hold us back.”

The salon offers hairdressing, beauty and grooming treatments and provides a range of services from modern contemporary through to traditional styling.

“We would like to thank all our clients for voting and their support.

“We had to submit the salon’s history, PR coverage and evidence of our work which was then overlooked by a panel of judges.

“It’s lovely that our customers believe in us. Everyone gives 110% and it is amazing to be recognised.”
