About

Hollie and Jodie Houston started they’re beauty career in 2010, with both having they’re first child, they wanted a career that suited them, but also a career that they wanted to love. This gave them time to work in the evenings and on weekends around they’re children.

It was a very hard a decision but one they never regretted. They both had a passion for beauty, both as children they’re favourite thing to do was to paint each others nails and doing make overs. One time Hollie actually cut all of her hair off when she was 4, as she was pretending to be a hairdresser. The sisters started in a summerhouse at the bottom of Jodies garden, it had a vintage afternoon tea feel to it. The salon was very popular and welcoming. The girls started with basic beauty training, in nails, lashes, tanning, waxing, threading and tinting.

After a few years in the summerhouse, a property came available in Bitterne Park and they knew this was perfect for them. It was a hidden gem. It’s not the biggest of places, but its very misleading with how beautiful it really is.  The girls have designed and decorated the salon from head to toe, all by themselves. Making the salon feel clean, fresh, with an artistic flare of glitz and glam. They wanted it to feel welcoming for men and women.

Over the last two years the girls have branched into the skin industry, now fully qualified in tattoo removal, laser hair removal, 3D lipo, anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatments. They’ve also added a lovely bunch of enthusiastic and experienced ladies to join the team.

Our aim is to ensure we give our clients the best the industry has to offer with using all up to date technology and keeping up to date with trends. Not only do we love to make people look and feel great, but to also educate our clients why beauty and skin treatments are so important.
