BATB Cleans Up In The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021

BATB Cleans Up In The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021

2nd August 2021

More than 75,000 businesses were nominated in this year’s Muddy Stilettos Awards, and more than 750,000 votes were cast across the UK.

Regularly featured in the broadsheet newspapers and glossy magazines and named one of the Top 20 Next Gen media brands in 2020, Muddy Stilettos help 250,000+ readers across 25 counties – including Essex – to make the most of their precious free time with their expert insider info on the best local pubs, boutique hotels, new openings, family-friendly days, under-the-radar events AND beauty salons. Independence, careful curation, in-the-know info and a naughty sense of humour sets Muddy Stilettos apart from the competition.  

With Muddy Stilettos having such credibility, and strong competition throughout Essex, we knew we needed to showcase ourselves to be extra special, and are absolutely delighted to be voted winners in the Best Beauty Salon category. A huge thank you to everyone who voted, we simply couldn’t have achieved this latest success without you.
