Muddy Stilettos, ‘The Urban Guide to the Countryside’ is the biggest lifestyle blog in Bucks and Oxon with over 20,000 discerning followers. It is the creation of ex journalist (previous work includes Independent on Sunday, Observer, Red, Marie Claire, Elle, The Telegraph) Hero whose witty, honest and upbeat reviews reveal the very best of local businesses in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
The award nominations ran between March 9th and April 29th with voting in 28 different categories including best Beauty Salon, Best Restaurant and best Theatre to name a few.
France Baudet, owner and director of Cannelle beauty was thrilled at the result. “It was a very tense few days as we could watch the percentage increase and decrease for each of the five beauty salon finalists as people cast their votes. Having been established in Oxford and Henley for over 17 years I have a wonderful and loyal clientbase and I am extremely grateful to everyone who voted. And of course above all to my staff, my brilliant therapists whose high standards and training create the unique world of Cannelle Beauty that clients want to step into.”
France and Muddy Stiletto’s Hero have enjoyed learning from each other. Hero has tried treatments she never thought she would experience including anti-ageing skin tightening and callus peeling and France is intrigued by the power of social media sites and blogging that never existed when she first opened her salon in Summertown, Oxford back in 1997.
Cannelle Beauty beats the competition to win the Best Beauty Salon category in the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2015.
Now, over 17 years on France has two salons, 14 treatment rooms (11 in Oxford, 3 in Henley) employing a total of 18 staff and enjoys researching new treatments that offer clients the very best in beauty therapy and non surgical anti ageing procedures.
