The votes of loyal customers have helped Falkirk businesses be named the best in the annual Scottish Wedding Awards.
One Falkirk salon was named hair and make-up specialist of the year for the whole of Scotland at the award ceremony held in the Double Tree Hilton in Glasgow last week.
LMG Hair and Beauty, based in Paterson Tower in Falkirk’s Callendar Park, firstly scooped the award for the central area
Then LMG’s owner Linzi Grant was stunned when the area winners were asked to stay on stage and her small shop was announced the overall Scottish winner.
“I just think it’s amazing – I still can’t believe it happened!” said Linzi.
“There were so many hairdressers in for it including some big salons!”
The salon, which moved to Paterson Towner from Falkirk’s Orchard Street, has a loyal base not only among the residents of the flats but also further afield.
As well as normal hairdressing and beauty services, including wedding packages, they specialise in dressing wigs for weddings, including hair-ups.
