A NEW beauty salon will be opening in Leek next week.
'Beauty by Jana' is a new business venture for mother-of-two Jana Shrestha.
Jana, pictured, is a fully qualified therapist with more than nine years of experience and has completed a Beauty Therapy NVQ level Two and Three at Henley College in Coventry.
Jana explained how she came about opening up her own salon after working for a number of beauty employers. She has also taught Beauty Therapy at Leek College.
She said: "This summer, we were invited to my friend's 40th Birthday Party and by chance one of my clients was there who told me about the salon coming available at Brough Park Leisure Centre and encouraged me over a glass of wine to go for it. "So we went to look at the salon and we really liked the place and location.
"Clients, friends and my fiance have always encouraged me to open up a salon but I have never found the right place until I entered the salon at Brough Park Leisure Centre.
"I want to garner all the experience I have gained from the beauty industry and bring the best of the places I've worked and put them all together to offer the best professional service at Beauty By Jana.
"I hope to offer the best service available, build a good client base and look to employ one or two therapists in the future."
Beauty By Jana will open on Tuesday (September 17) at 9am.
Jana said: "I will be offering an extensive range of beauty treatment from facials and massages using the award winning MONU skincare range, which is formulated with natural ingredient.
"I am also offering the must-have treatments HD Brows, Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish, Sienna X spray tan and many more.
"Beauty is my passion and to be able to open a salon is like dream come true.
"I am very excited about my salon and so looking forward to my grand opening day on Tuesday.
"I will be offering a 20 percent grand opening discount on treatments and products only throughout September and October."
Thirty-seven year old Jana, originally from Kathmandu in Nepal, moved to England 2001. She met her now fiancÈ Damian Sheldon from Leek in 2010.
Jana said: "I love living here, the people are very friendly, and its great being so close to the Peak District."
