The Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA) was held on Sunday the 27th of September with 580 guests attending. Spectrum Science & Beauty are very proud to be a major sponsor of the awards and support the industry that we love.

The ABIA’s have cemented their position as the Oscars of the beauty industry and with a growing number of entrants each year, they are clearly seen as the benchmark of excellence and the most sought after accolade for salons and spas in Australia.

On behalf of Spectrum we would like to congratulate all the finalists and winners of each category this year. We were very excited to see a number of Spectrum customers as both finalists and winners at the awards.

Congratulations to the WINNERS of the 2017 Australian Beauty Industry Awards.
