Three sisters from Wymondham have opened a beauty salon in Hethersett.

Lyndsey Gonzalez, 25, Kim Easton, 21, and Vicki Holt, 27, who all live in Wymondham, have opened the Beauty Shed in Norwich Road, Hethersett.

Mrs Gonzalez runs the business while her sister Kim has her own treatment room and Vicki works part time on reception.

Mrs Gonzalez, who has a seven-month-old daughter, Sophia, has worked in the industry since she was 14, when she had her first taste of work experience at a spa in a local hotel.

She studied for her NVQ levels 2 and 3 at City College Norwich, where she was student of the year. She worked in two Wymondham salons before returning to the college where she became a qualified assessor, working with beauty therapy students.

“It has always been my dream to open my own salon,” she said. “We provide affordable luxury.”

“There’s always a reason to put off starting your own business. I have a young baby and the economic climate is tough but I just decided to go for it.”

Mrs Gonzalez used her savings to launch the business.

She did not think twice about recruiting her two sisters to join her on the new venture.

“We all get on well so it’s great that we all work together. The business is family orientated – everything from the start has involved my family.

My parents looked after Sophia so I could work and my husband, Dan, and brother-in-law, Rob, helped with the renovation.”

The Beauty Shed will be holding open days on Friday, August 24 and Saturday, August 25, from 10am-4pm.
