​Brazilian Beauty Awards Ball

The Brazilian Beauty Annual Awards Ball was held at Cloudland, Fortitude Valley in Brisbane on the 22nd of February. The theme, All That Glitters, was a true indication of the nights ambiance. Each team member glittered in gorgeous ball gowns, radiated a brilliance and sparkle from their eyes and smiles during the awards and on the dance floor. The Awards Ball celebrates all of the hard work from each BB team member company wide. Team members who exemplify outstanding effort and results are recognised with awards and are all invited to a Brisbane river cruse aboard the 52ft Brazilian Beauty Charter Yacht. The Ball this year also celebrated 10 years of Brazilian Beauty, to say the least there was a lot of emotion on the night. Both FRANCESCA WEBSTER, CEO and founder, and ANDREW BRYANT, COO and Founder opened with a touching speech that really set the tone for the absolutely fantastic night that it was.

We love to recognise exceptional achievements within the company and are proud to highlight some of our top team members as follows. FRANCHISEE OF THE YEAR was proudly given to JULIE WRIGHT, franchisee of Ashgrove BB as well as CFO of Brazilian Beauty. Julie opened Ashgrove in November 2010 and the salon has grown strength to strength. Julie supports other franchisees above and beyond what is expected, she epitomises everything that it is to be a Brazilian Beauty and is always there to support the BB community.

SALON OF THE YEAR was very honourably awarded to BB CREEK STREET CBD salon. The salon missed out last year on this award after receiving it 2 years in a row and has now gained it back after a lot of hard work, determination and dedication by the team. This is our flagship store and the Brazilian Beauty culture and philosophy of ‘THE CLIENT IS KING’ is upheld in every aspect.

Sarah is the therapist in the company that has the most clients wanting to come back and see her time and time again. She embraces the Brazilian Beauty way through every aspect and is a BB girl through and through. She loves her clients and her clients love her. We just can’t seem to get enough of Sarah!
