Evodia Beauty Care wins at the Australian Beauty Industry Awards 2022


Greek Australian-owned Evodia Beauty Care in Melbourne’s eastern suburb of Camberwell took out a key award at the illustrious Australian Beauty Industry Awards 2022 (ABIA) on Sunday.

The small business won the Victorian, Tasmanian and South Australian Salon of the Year with four treatment rooms or less.

Speaking exclusively with The Greek Herald, owner Eirini Tzortzis describes the win as “a wonderful surprise” and a “huge honour.”

“It was a very special win for our small business considering the many closures we endured during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021,” she says.

“I am so very proud of our team for their dedication, hard work and bringing so much passion and care every day to work. We are so proud to represent Camberwell and Victoria on a national stage.”

The ABIA’s provide a benchmark of excellence across both specialist and individual categories in beauty and make-up, with a wide variety of categories highlighting the leaders and experts in their fields.

This year, and before 500 beauty specialists at The Star in Sydney, Eirini’s salon was amongst 44 recipients of an ABIA at the annual gala event.

Being in the skin and beauty industry for over 18 years, Eirini describes opening Evodia Beauty Care six years ago as a “dream come true”.

“I initially started Evodia in 2016 by renting out a small room at the back of a hair salon,” she says.

“Within a few months the business outgrew the space and then we moved to a larger room at another salon until the business outgrew that space as well. Finally, in 2018 we opened up our current space in Camberwell.”

Founder of ABIA, Linda Woodhead, congratulated Eirini on the win, saying: “Eirini and the Evodia Beauty Care team are the perfect examples of industry leaders and excellent ambassadors for the awards program and local area.”

“The Camberwell community should be so proud of this achievement!” she added.

Whilst Eirini says being recognised by her peers is an incredible honour, nothing can compete with the feeling of empowering her clients.

“We empower our clients to be the best versions of themselves and without them, we wouldn’t be here today. In a big way, we owe this award to them,” she concludes.
