The end of 2016 already. Wasn't this a year a blink and you'll miss it kind of year. We can't quite believe where it's gone but we're excited to look forward to see what 2017 will bring.
2016 has brought us some great times and we thought'd we reflect and share some of our standout moments of the year.
- VENUS CELEBRATED IT'S FIRST BIRTHDAY -
The 31st March saw us celebrate our first birthday at Venus. It was a great feeling; everything that happened and all the hard work before we opened the doors for the first time paid off. The first year saw our clients to continue to support us as well as lovely new clients finding us.
We really do like to offer everything under one roof; nails, hair, sunshower, massage and more. Our clients seem to like this and we're so pleased we can offer these many services.
To celebrate our big day, Fiona and her team at The Kitchen made us the most delicious cake. Clients and staff were very pleased to be in on that day as everyone tucked in for a hearty slice.
- MILKSHAKE SUMMER PARTY -
We felt so lucky to go to Alicante as part of z.one Concept/Milkshake's end of summer party. Seeing hair stylists at work, networking with those that share our passion and just having a great time with our own team. Our eyes are peeled for their next trip.
- THE MARY BUDDING TRUST -
Each year we pick a charity to support for the whole year. For 2016 we supported The Mary Budding Trust. The charity helps children with disabilities aged 11 and under in the West Devon Borough Council and Tavistock area.
Here at Venus we don't charge for small nail repairs and fringe trims but ask if you'd kindly pop a donation in the tin on our front desk.
Our big event to raise extra this year was John's charity wax. Legs and underarms were auctioned off and this event alone raised over £150 on the day.
Our final total for this year will be announced in January along with who are 2017 charity will be.
- SUNSHOWER -
Our salon had a bit of a revamp- Sarah moved rooms and we installed a sunshower. The sunshower has proven a big hint with clients old and new. The benefits for the sunshower are huge and we have loved seeing our clients reap the rewards.
- NEW TEAM MEMBERS -
2016 saw our team expand and we've been so happy to see them grow and start building relationships with the clients. This year Gabby, our Saturday Assistant, joined and has gone from strength to strength within the salon. We also welcomed Sophie, our new Beauty Therapist. Qualified in waxing, threading, facials, manicures and pedicures. Sophie is constantly growing her talents, keep your eyes peeled in the new year for more.
It's also very exciting to share the news that the hair department is also expanding. As of January 2017 we will be welcoming Vickie to the team. Vickie is relocating from the South East to the South West and will be in the salon full time. Her specialities include colouring and hair extensions so don't delay, book your consultations and appointments today.
