A salon has been crowned the district's best in its thirtieth year of trading.

Evie Adams Beauty Clinic in Woodford Green was named the Epping Forest Guardian's Salon of the Year 2018.

The High Road business opened in 1988 offering holistic treatments such as Indian head massages, aromatherapy and reflexology, as well as more standard procedures including facials, waxing and manicures.

The woman at the heart of the business is Evie Adams, who has 40 years experience in the industry.

Just shy of thirty years ago Ms Adams took a course in semi-permanent makeup, a relatively unknown procedure at the time.

Now she is recognised as an authority in the field and has helped advance the treatment in the UK.

Ms Adams said: "We are delighted to be winners of the Epping Forest Guardian's Salon of the Year 2018.

"This is a testament to our on-going hard work and determination to offer the highest quality service and treatments to our clients.

"Without them we would not have won this award and I'd like to thank each and everyone of them for voting for us.

"Customer care is at the top of my priorities, after all clients come to us to relax and be pampered, and offload the stresses of life.

"We are hoping that by winning this prestigious award we are showing everyone there how dedicated and professional we really are.

"We look forward to welcoming you."
