Glambox on St Benedicts Street specialises in eyelash extensions but also offers a range of other treatments including manicures and body waxing in their private beauty rooms.

The business was set up by Charlotte Croft from Norwich.

The 28-year-old said: 'I began doing a course in beauty therapy at Great Yarmouth College in 2008. Once I qualified I teamed up with my mum and we worked together for five years, building a strong client base.

MORE: Top Hat fancy dress shop to close after 30 years in Norwich'Three years ago I decided it was time to set out by myself, so I created Glambox, which was originally based on Magdalen Street. As business got busier and busier, I started looking for a new shop in 2016 and after viewing many places I found the perfect location to relocate to.'

She added: 'After a complete transformation, Glambox opened in its new location and I couldn't be happier. It's a real dream come true.'
