There's nothing like hearing about a 17 year old winning Yorkshire's Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition to make you feel like a bit of an underachiever, but once we get over that, we can't help but be enormously impressed and happy for Ashleigh Young of Harrogate, UK.

Owner of Belles and Beau salon, Ashleigh won the prestigious award after beating a field of 250 applicants. Ashleigh trained with CND and uses all CND products and attributes this to some of her success.

Ashleigh, who's personal hero is Amy Childs, says, "My win was a dynamic combo of knowing exactly what I wanted to do, using great products, exceptional training and working alongside a company like Sweet Squared who is always there for me no matter what."

Sweet Squared took time out to congratulate Ashleigh with goodies and flowers. "Ashleigh has proved beautifully that there is no such word as can't!" says Samantha Sweet. "She is an amazing example to her generation and to us all; we are so proud of her."

From all at Salon Geek, well done Ashleigh. You go girl!

Until then...geek on!
