A YOUNG Warwick businesswo­man set to open the doors to her beauty salon at the thriving Parmalat precinct hopes the launch will boost her career.

Shakii Clarkson will open Sassy Little Beauty in a new space at the Victoria St business precinct in just under two weeks.

The 20-year-old said she was inspired to kickstart her own venture after struggling to find work in the industry.

“There aren’t many beauty salons in Warwick and they don’t really hire, most of them work on their own,” she said.

Miss Clarkson said she’d always wanted to establish a shopfront in Warwick, and knew the thriving Parmalat precinct would be the perfect opportunit­y.

“I wanted to move back to Warwick, I didn’t want them driving too far to come here.”

Miss Clarkson said her business – which offers a range of services including facials, lash tints, and spray tans – allowed her to turn her passion into a profession.

“It’s about helping (clients) to live a happy life and offering self-love.”

Inspired by her tenacity and short stature, the young Miss Clarkson and her mother Tammy settled on the name Sassy Little Beauty.

“Mum came up with sassy because it goes with my personalit­y and I’m little so it just worked well,” she said.

Sassy Little Beauty opens on November 1.
