Changes for the better
FOR Jane Walsh, her dream became a reality when she opened her own beauty salon.
The Queen Victoria Salon opened in 1999.
The beauty therapy salon owner said she had had seven years experience in the beauty industry when it opened.
“My dream was to always get enough experience to open my own salon so I could have the freedom to choose both treatments and products that I wanted to offer to my clientele,” she said.
“With the wonderful support of both talented staff and supportive clientele, I have been able to enjoy both raising my two children and running a business.”
The salon offers waxing, tinting, nails, massage, tanning and advanced skin treatments such as skin needling.
Ms Walsh said like North Fremantle, beauty techniques had also changed over the past 20 years.
“North Fremantle has changed remarkably; our old North Fremantle town centre is back to being full of activity with everything from beauty, cafes, bars, clothing and fitness,” she said.
“I think the biggest change I’ve noticed in the beauty industry in the last 20 years is we now have the most amazing, active, result-driven Australianmade skincare at our fingertips. In-salon treatments and homecare has advanced so much, giving us the ability to treat serious skin concerns with great results.”
