SUE Palmer, the owner of The Stow based Salon 112 has just celebrated being open for 21 years.
Sue has taken this opportunity to reflect on over two decades in the business.
Back in April 2001, I opened the doors to Salon 112 and my vision was to bring West End treatments to a local clientele at affordable prices. Overall I feel I have fulfilled that vision. However, what I didn’t envision was how the beauty industry would change over that 21 years, for the good and also for the very very bad and ugly.
I trained back in 1996 qualifying in CIDESCO, BABTAC and ITEC and like every newly qualified student, I thought I knew everything – little did I know that my training journey was only just beginning. The first 5 years after leaving college, consisted of working from home, setting up a mobile service in Surrey and Chelsea (thanks to my friend Kim), renting a room in a tanning salon and working part time in one of the first laser clinics to open in the UK. These first 5 years gave me the time to think about what aspect of the industry really interested me the most and for me, it was always going to be Skin Treatments and Hair Removal, learning about what causes problems with both and continually looking for treatments and products to best treat the symptoms experienced by so many.
