AN AMESBURY beautician has won an award for her eyelash expertise.

On Sunday, February 24, Jamie-Lee Jones was presented a Professional Beauty Award, following her successful business and use of eyelash brand NovaLash.

Only becoming qualified to work with the brand in August, Jamie-Lee runs her business, Buffed Beauty, in The Beauty Lounge in Bulford.

And the 32-year-old admitted she only entered the Lash Championships in London to take part in the experience and "have a go", adding: "I didn't think I would win.

"When I found out I won I cried on stage which was embarrassing, but this recognition is amazing and I am over the moon."

This is the first year the competition has come to London following success in Manchester, in which lash experts have to put their skills to the test in various styles including Classic, Russian Volume and New Volume.

Jamie-Lee was awarded first place in the New Volume category, under the novice division.

"Winning this award has changed everything," Jamie-Lee added.

"I feel so strongly about this brand and my dream is to take over Wiltshire with Novalash and educate how amazing it is.

"It's giving recognition to a brand that help natural lashes as well as [giving] people a new insight into the beauty industry."
