A brand new beauty studio that offers a ‘one-on-one’ pampering experience, opened its doors at the weekend to raving reviews.
Eliska Beauty & Massage, in Welby Street, Grantham, caters for both men and women, along with having its own child-friendly play area for those parents who always have their hands full.
Owner, Abie Reynolds, 26, is a trained beautician and is ‘living her dream’ by owning her own beauty salon. She said: “I’ve always wanted to start my own business, it’s been a big part of my ten year plan. It’s been a lot of hard work, but it’s all worthwhile when you see all of the customers walk through the door.”
For Abie, who is a single mum to her seven-year-old son Jake, this new chapter of her life was one she didn’t ever expect to happen. Having been diagnosed with epilepsy in her teenage years, Abie has always suffered seizures, sometimes up to two or three a day.
In the last few years she came very close to having a brain operation to help deter her epilepsy, but thanks to her strong medication the seizures began to decrease and Abie managed to go a whole year without a seizure.
After regaining her strength, Abie applied for her driving licence and spent her time doing home nursing and mobile beauty therapy.
She said: “When I was diagnosed with epilepsy I didn’t think any of this would have been possible. But look at me now, I have my own beauty studio and who knows what will be next.”
Abie’s new studio will be open five days a week, offering men and women beauty treatments ranging from waxing, massage, facials, spray tans, manicures and pedicures.
She also hopes to start running pamper parties at the studio for hen parties or groups of friends, along with princess parties for the little ones.
Abie has also come up with the innovative idea of ‘beauty shots’ a menu of express treatments for men and women, along with ‘beauty cocktails’ which offer more ‘luxurious’ treatments for clients to indulge in.
