Tayla’s passion is for nail art
A YOUNG Biggenden mum of two has taken the plunge and opened her own beauty salon in the main business area of town.
Tayla Stegert, mother to six-year-old Emma and Nate, who turns two in April, grew up in Biggenden.
Growing up, she always loved getting her nails done.
“But I hated the fact I had to travel,” she said.
When Emma was born, Tayla was only 18 but she had the support of her family.
Having that support, Tayla decided to follow her passion and enrolled in a beauty therapy course.
Tayla said her main passion was nails, especially acrylic nails and nail art.
“When I finished friends wanted their nails and eyebrows done so I started a salon at my Alfred St home four years ago,” she said.
“Getting more and more busy and getting random people call in I decided to expand out of home and move into Biggenden Place.”
Tayla said she did not believe in using a product on a client’s skin she wouldn’t use on herself.
“All products are professional grade, organic and vegan free,” she said.
She loves living in Biggenden with its friendly environment.
Many of her best friends, including Krystal Monahan, who Tayla went to school with from Year 3, live in the town.
“With all these friends and family here it’s a great place for my kids,” she said.
“I love Biggenden school and its teachers plus being a small community you know the parents of the kids.”
The opening of Touch of Beauty on January 14 attracted around 20 local residents.
They enjoyed wine and nibblies along with gift bags, mini facials, and a lucky door prize.
