The salon quickly evolved with successful apprenticeships and Natalie continued to teach but on her own premises.

Ms Smith said it was “incredible” the business had hit the 30-year milestone. “Time goes so quickly,” she said. “I feel privileged and honoured to have evolved the business from a freelance model to the boutique salon it is today. We’ve survived the Covid pandemic and a recession, and we’re now working our way through another! I couldn’t have done it without the continuous support of my lovely staff, clients, and family. Thank you, all. I’m one lucky, grateful lady. Here’s to many more years!”. – 07739 559 253
