A new health and beauty salon has opened in Clare to an enthusiastic response from the local community.

Beautiful You held a launch event on Saturday at its premises on Market Hill – formerly the home of Passion Flowers – before starting up in earnest on Monday.

The newcomer to the Clare retail scene has already attracted a lot of interest, to the delight of owner Lisa Manning.

She said: “We took about 70 bookings on Saturday. That was very good.”

Lisa had been working from her home in Cavendish Road, Clare, but things got so busy that she decided to move the business up to the next level.

She added: “I have retrained and built up my client base and just got to the stage where I was so busy it was time to open a salon.

“I had a treatment room at home and I was also going out and doing it mobile as well.”

Lisa has another string to her business portfolio in the form of children’s pamper parties, which operates under the name of Girls Pamper Parties.

The parties are largely held remotely, but can also be held in the salon.

Beautiful You, which was fitted out by Lisa’s husband Carl, who runs his own building firm, offers a wide range of treatments and products, including Elemis skin care products, facials, massage, eyelash extensions, tinting, waxing and spray tanning.

The salon is open from Monday to Saturday.
