She said: "I am absolutely buzzing to have placed in the Top 50 in the first year of being entered."

All Dolled Up offers facial treatments, hair removals and other services to customers as well as serving as a training academy for budding beauticians.

The store was also entered into the Best New Salon category, but only placed in the Best Salon Decor category.
