Launch party for new salon

A LAUNCH party on December 8 will see the opening of a new beauty salon in Portishead.

The finishing touches are being applied to Jay Gees Nails and Beauty, which will open in the former Palomares Hair Designs building at 8 The Triangle, West Hill.

New owner Joanne Griffiths, who has been working as a beauty therapist from home for the past four years, says having her own premises is a dream come true.

She said: “I have dedicated my time to building a reputable business over the past four years pampering the patrons of Portishead and the surrounding areas.

“I can’t think of a better occupation and I can hardly believe that my dream of getting my own purpose-built salon is about to come true.”

Michael Palomares, who had traded as a hairdresser at the Triangle salon for more than 20 years is now spending more time working as a professional musician.

He said: “I play guitar in a band which has been very busy this year and have also recently joined the Ukulele Fun Orchestra, so when Jo made me an offer on the salon it seemed too good an opportunity to miss. I can now dedicate more time to my music.”
