Beautician opens up to a whole new market in Grimsby

Customers can relax and enjoy a range of beauty treatments thanks to a beautician Tanya Wakefield joining the array of shops and stalls Freeman Street has to offer.

Beauty by Tanya is the newest addition and joins on to the back of Buzz Box hair salon.

The mum-of-two explained: "I'm a bit of a chancer, I love taking chances and this is what I've done with this. I qualified four years ago and did it as a hobby.

"I was trained at the Alcrest Academy and then later tried to get a job but everywhere wanted salon experience. I thought to myself, how can I get salon experience? I'll open up my own place."

Tanya previously worked at Grimsby College and said opening up her beauty parlour was a "bit of a change and a challenege".

"I definitely made the right decision with this," Tanya said. "I was given some really good advice and it seems to be taking off really well.

"For a lot of Shannon's customers at the Buzz Box, they've now got hair and beauty under one roof. I am going to keep the prices as affordable as I possibly can and there's quite a selection as well.

"I've hardly had to change a thing in this room, it was clean and neutral when I arrived. I've just added my own finishing touches and some curtains for privacy when I'm doing relaxing facials. It was a blank canvas for me really."

Tanya is able to provide a range of services including: nails, waxing, brow and lash tinting, facials, eyelash extensions and has plans to carry out spray tanning.

Customer, Tracey Bendan said: "This beauty parlour being a part of my hairdressers is fantastic. So for me, being able to get my nails while I'm here is great. I can have my nails done while waiting for a colour or people can have other treatments while they are waiting. I think it's a really good idea and its so handy."

Tracey has linked the salon and her beauty business together to create a full salon experience. "I've opened up to a whole new market. People who are shopping or wandering about the market can come to me if they fancy having a pamper.

"I absolutely love this job, I'm so pleased I took the challenge and opened this place."
