Leanne Furley is a permanent hair stylist and make-up artist at Unique Boutique, and has been stationed here since April.

“I love the flexibility and convenience of Unique Boutique,” said Leanne.

“It’s great for me as I can work around school times and child care, I don’t think I’d be able to do that if I worked for someone else.

“Not only is this space great for me, but also for my clients, as it’s easy to get to, out of a busy town centre and they can park right outside the salon – there’s not many businesses around that can offer this luxury.

“I would say Unique Boutique is a blank slate with all the amenities to make your business. Obviously I have my own equipment to do my job, but what you do here is entirely up to you – I have my own space where I can work at my leisure, I’m my own boss.

“The more you put in, the more you get out.

“I offer a wide range of services to my clients here which include my 60-minute timeless facial treatments with massage for £50, manicure and pedicure services from £15, and I have a package available for bridal hair and make-up for £60.

“I also have many other exciting treatments available too, which include lashes, tanning and waxing.

“I have 10 years’ experience within the industry, working at national fashion events, doing celebrity hair and make-up, editorial hair and make-up, as well as bridal hair and make-up.

“Another great bonus here is the addition of professional photography, which will help build your portfolio to promote your business online. I’ve yet to use this free service, but look forward to working with photographers Peter Cornish and Jaq Williams.

“I would definitely recommend Unique Boutique to anyone who is looking to progress their mobile hair or make-up business, or for anyone looking to go it alone.”
