Even a file and polish can make people feel better
step to open my own salon and have not looked back since. We are currently looking for salon number two! What sets you apart from other similar shops? We offer five-star luxury treatments in a friendly salon environment. We do a lot more massage than most salons as I am so passionate about it, coming from a spa background. What type of customer is your favourite? We love all our clients! We have such a huge client base now and we have a wide age range of clients too. We offer princess pamper parties from age five and we have manicure clients who are 97 years old! Beauty spas are known to attract women, but do you get many men? We get lots of men in for our deep tissue massage, which is great for aching muscles. They also have waxing, facials, pedicures – some days we have more men in than women! What is your favourite aspect of working in this industry? I love to make people feel better about themselves, even if it’s just a file and polish or an express facial for a pick-me-up. To be able to pamper people is the best part of the job. What do you think you give to the
