A beauty salon and training academy opened its doors this week to bring a new offering to Northwich.

Beautifix, located at Barons Quay, opened on Tuesday (January 11) with a promise to be a one-stop-shop providing a range of high-quality beauty and hair treatments.

Owners Niamh Smith and Bernice Flynn were delighted to welcome customers at their new 3,000sq ft salon for the first time.

Niamh, from Cuddington, said: “We are really excited to be part of Barons Quay which has a brilliant mix of shops and leisure.

"The team is looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to our amazing new salon, which has been designed to create a warm and friendly atmosphere for our clients.

“The additional space means we have been able to grow our team, who are all experts in their field and bring an exciting mix of new services to local people who deserve to look their best.”

Niamh and Bernice, from Warrington, opened their first salon in 2019 at the Chester Way Retail Park but as their popularity grew, they needed a bigger space to cater for their 800-strong client base.

The salon team is made up of 11 technicians who provide a variety of expertise in different beauty fields including nails, lashes, brows, skin, hair and make-up.

There is also the opportunity for people to receive medical facials and aesthetics, which are administered by an in-house nurse experienced with injectables and medical-grade skin services.

The new open plan-style space includes a make-up bar, nail bar, brow bar and hairdressing area, as well as three private treatment rooms and quieter spaces for customers to relax while waiting for or during their appointment.

Niamh and Bernice also established the Beautifix Academy to help train the next generation of professional beauticians using a range of accredited courses which people can sign up for online.

The salon is the latest business to join Barons Quay and the team is also planning a number of events throughout the year, such as wellness and makeup master classes, to help local people look and feel great.

Beautifix is open Tuesday to Saturday, with longer opening hours on Thursdays. Booking appointments is advised to avoid disappointment although walk-ins can be accepted.
