Tayla’s pas­sion is for nail art

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
