A former student at Lynn’s College of West Anglia has set up her a new beauty therapy business in West Lynn which was launched this week.
Ellen Larkman, 18, of Terrington St Clement, has opened her business, Elle-Jaye Beauty, at Opium Hair Designs, in St Peters Road. The new enterprise came about through her own initiative.
“I decided to start up my own business as I had been applying for jobs but without success, so I went along to the salon and asked about the possibility of working there.
“The answer was ‘yes’ and I have my own treatment room there. I started taking bookings straight away for my first day and am looking forward to the challenge of running my own business.”
Ellen, who gained Level 2 and 3 qualifications in beauty therapy at college, offers a wide range of treatments, including massage, facials, nails, waxing, and tanning. While she will be concentrating her time at the salon, she is also considering offering a mobile service.
To book an appointment with Ellen, call Opium Hair Designs on 01553 777050 or her mobile 07830040970.
