New boutique, beauty lounge and hair studio set up in Oasis Health Club after £300k refurbishment
31st July 2017
Three new businesses have opened at the Oasis Health Club. Following on from the Orwell Street club’s £300,000 refurbishment started in December, entrepreneurs have found the ideal home for their new ventures.
Grimsby Institute graduate, Lauren Amy Wright, who is a member of the fitness club said she “jumped” at the chance to start her new boutique business Law Amour.
She has an eye for fashion, as well as detail and sourced a fabulous range of formal and casual wear and soon will have gym outfits for sale. The Bardot tops are eye-catching and there is a wide range of jeans.
Lauren said: “It looks so much brighter than it was before.”
She told how her late-grandmother Joan Wilson, who passed away two years ago, was at the forefront of her mind when she created the stunning angel wings decoration and the ever-lasting pink rose which has pride of place in the boutique. Its walls are decorated with feathers to remind her of her nanna, as when a white feather floats near, it is a symbol of a loved one looking over you.
She thanked her mum and dad, Gill and Lee Wright for helping get her started in her business venture.
There are six stylists in ......@hair studio, hence the six dots at the start of the name of the studio.
Payge Blythe, Jonathon Marc Mendes, Cheryl Marshall, Scott Smith, Livvy Allott and Georgie Sleeman have nearly 80 years of hairdressing experience between them.
Payge said: “We are all a good team and we have a lot of customers who are regular visitors. We have a good mix of ages. People come for the atmosphere.
“We work like a family and we are joined like a family like the rest of Oasis.”
The team provide all colour services, blow dry cuts and wedding and prom packages.
Jonathon recalled his service to well-known faces Sophie Powles, Melinda Messenger and Linda Robson.
Bookings can be made on 01472 349597 and the studio is open 9am to 7pm.
Oasis general manager, Tracey Mills welcomed the new businesses and said they augmented the major refurbishment to the gym club, which has 1,700 members. There is also a new steam room.
Tracey said Sonnie’s barbers will be opening soon to enhance the services at the gym which started in 1990.
Tracey said: “It is such a friendly atmosphere. with a wide range of members from 16 years to over 80.
“They are all getting results.”
She said experts can provide individual fitness packages and eating plans and she demonstrated the science behind exercise.
The gym’s cafe, serving a range of foods and coffees, is open to non-members too.
