    I would have liked to have voted for my favourite hairdresser, but never got my ‘special’ link through despite trying many times.

      Hi Louise, I’m sorry to hear that. Did you check your junk mail? If you have no joy receiving the link next year just email and we can sort it out while the voting is live. Kindest, Hero

    Great news Iris won an award

    I am really annoyed you have chosen a spa that is only available to members and residents. How about all the other places that are genuine day spas? That is not.

    • muddystiletto May 23, 2019

      Hi Lisa, thanks for your message. I appreciate your frustration but the category was Best Day Spa and it can be used for the day so is therefore eligible. Muddy readers chose the winner, and I can definitely recommend it personally, it is a beautiful spa – though the other four on the finals list are also fabulous. Kindest, Hero
