CIDESCO, the esteemed awarding organisation for beauty and spa therapy, has announced the winners of its Global Awards 2022.

The awards recognised the exceptional talents of students worldwide across beauty therapy, nails, make-up, western massage and spa.

The nails and massage categories were new for 2022. Judges for the Nail Professional category were Scratch magazine’s managing editor, Helena Biggs; Marian Newman BEM; Andrea Gregaydis and Kirsty MacCormick.

The entrants to the category were required to create a marketing-style nail image that defined who they are as a nail artist. Marks were awarded for nail skill and execution, as well as how well the finished artistry defined the theme. Entrants submitted a video of the nail creation and explanation of the theme, as well as still images of their nail creation.

Tsui Ho Chan of Hong Kong, China, won the CIDESCO Nail Professional category, with her nail design that celebrated liberation; the courage to set yourself free from burdens and celebrate your own self and talents.

The nails featured embossed gold chains and hand painted butterflies to represent freedom and flight.

The runner up in the Nail Professional category is Yuen Ka Wing, also from Hong Kong, China. She created a peacock to represent courage and bravery, particularly post-pandemic.

Hayley Snishko of mobile business, Home Sanctuary, Surrey, is the only UK entrant to scoop an award, winning the Western Massage category. She is also behind the Massage4MentalHealth campaign, which champions the use of massage therapy to aid in the treatment of mental health issues.

“I am absolutely thrilled to receive this award,” Hayley comments. “It is truly an honour and I want to thank CIDESCO and the judges for selecting me.”
