By Callie Iley | 08 December 2021 | Feature, Salon & Spas
Lauren Jackson took evening courses for a year at college, qualifying as a nail technician in 2012.
“I began my career on a mobile basis, at first offering spray tans and nail appointments, before renting a room above a hairdressers in my village,” she recalls. “I finally decided to go home based and set up a little area in my home, before moving into our spare bedroom and using it solely as my salon room offering nails.”
“I work on my own, and don’t plan to expand my business, apart from offering more treatments in my home. I love working for myself!” Lauren enthuses. “I would love a cabin one day, but this would only happen if we buy a bigger house in the future.
“It’s lovely to be in a home environment and not in a bustling salon, and it’s super easy – and free – to park right outside, which some of my older ladies love.”
“My salon is based within my home and has a lovely relaxed feel. As I live in a village, I love the feeling that clients can have a little walk to my home knowing it’s completely relaxed but also professional.
“It’s a chilled, comfortable environment where you can be pampered, feel at ease and have a good chat,” she smiles. “Having a small business is amazing as I can get to know all of my clients properly and become friends over time.”
“My space is somewhere you can totally be yourself whilst having some you time.”
“My decor is mainly neutral, as I wanted to give it a calm and fresh feel,” Lauren reveals. “My salon also has some hints of pink as I love the colour and wanted to have a bit of my personality in it.”
“I make an effort to ensure that my little salon is professional but relaxed, so that my clients can feel at ease”
