Claire Smith and her husband Anthony are doing a rather good job of keeping us West Bridgford folk looking our best, with her Zest Beauty Salon she’s got enough room for the whole town, as her treatments room have recently doubled from 2 to 4. This is clearly a business that is on the up.
The salon opened in 2006, and Claire has been keen to embrace the latest and best in beauty techniques and products right from the start. New skin treatments in the salon include derma rolling and other beauty innovations such as gel fix nails about to be added to their popular selection of facials, massage, waxing, pedicures and manicures. “We like to keep up with what’s going on,” said Claire, who has also taken on two more staff to meet customer demand at the salon, which has been awarded the highly prized Aroma Gold Plus status by Decleor in each of the last three years. “The gel fix nails look like nail polish but last for two weeks. We will be the first salon in West Bridgford to offer it. We are also introducing face peels and caci, which is a non-surgical facelift. I’m also looking to offer more clinical treatments such as reflexology.”
And as far as partnerships go, these two could give Richard and Judy a run for their money (obviously if it was based on looks and charm they’d win hands down!), as Anthony runs an eCommerce beauty products business attached to the salon, selling all the state-of-the-art top quality beauty products that salon customers enjoy in their treatments.
Claire loves running her own business in West Bridgford and wants to remain in the area for the long-term. “A lot of my clients run their own businesses. I recommend them to my customers and they recommend the salon to theirs. All the businesses here support each other. Everyone is really friendly.” That’s what we like to see, like one big happy family of local businesses. Actually, world peace while we’re at it!
