Hi, I’m Laura
I am the owner of The Elysium, I opened the salon in 2008 after converting the dilapidated old second hand shop. It took a whole year to design and refurb the building before opening to the public. Having no previous experience in the beauty industry and opening in a recession….. the first years were challenging to say the least, however persistence and hard work paid off.
My role is managing the day to day running of the salon, reception, marketing and products sales however I am trained in Threading and Bare Minerals makeup both of which I thoroughly enjoy.
An exciting change to the business in 2017! After working nearly 10 years to grow the business, it’s time for me to take a back seat. As a team we have agreed that the therapists move forward on a self employed basis however, as a client you will still see the continuing high standards and no changes to your service. We ask if you have a preferred therapist to please ask for her when making your appointments either by phone or social media. I am still heavily involved in the day to day running just not every hour the salon is open. In quieter periods this may mean the opening times may differ slightly to advertised. I would also like to please bring to your attention our cancellation policy, in the past we have been lenient but now with the changes mentioned we have no choice but to enforce them, could I please ask you to refer to our cancellation policy on the client info tab of the website.
Below are the details of our therapists all of which are very experienced in their field, we have a fantastic working relationship which makes it not only a great environment to work in, but you will see from your visit that we have a strong working team.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank each and every client, old and new for your continued support. I have made friends for life through this business which wouldn’t be the same without you xx
