A mother-of-one who is opening a new beauty salon in Tring tomorrow is hoping she will have a legacy to hand down to her daughter.
Single mum Sarah Neighbour is the owner of new salon Graceful Beauty at 39 Frogmore Street, and she named her new business after her two-year-old daughter Grace.
Sarah, 30, said: “It hasn’t been an easy ride for me. When I had Grace it was a real boost, and I want to be able to hand down my business to her when she’s older. I want her to have a good start in life.”
Sarah has worked in beauty therapy for 11 years, and until recently offered treatments at Tring’s On The Limit Gym in Western Road before deciding she wanted to break out on her own.
She said: “It’s always been something of a dream of mine to own my own salon. I’m excited and nervous – it’ll be a fresh start.”
The Graceful Beauty treatment menu will offer CND Shellac manicures and pedicures, as well as spray tanning and waxing treatments. Sarah hopes to add threading - a type of hair removal treatment - at a later date.
She said: “Nails are what I enjoy doing, as well as spray tanning. I have a loyal client base from On The Limit so hopefully I’ll be seeing lots of familiar faces.”
The salon will be open at the usual time of 10am to 4pm tomorrow, but Sarah is holding an official opening event on Saturday, September 28 – again between those times.
She invites people to visit, have a look around and share a glass of champagne with her. She will also be offering a 10 per cent discount on all treatments on the day.
The Graceful Beauty website is still under construction, but for price lists, opening times and more, search ‘Graceful Beauty’ on Facebook.
