New base in Darlington for beauty clinic; SMALL BUSINESS.
Byline: COREENA FORD firstname.lastname@example.org
AB U S I N E S S W O M A N who retained in specialist beauty treatments after being made redundant has established a permanent base for her clinic.
The Cosmetics Room has opened at growing business park Lingfield Point, Darlington, and some of its customers are travelling from more than three hours away to tap into its services.
The clinic is run by Dawn O'Neill, an expert in aesthetics and cosmetic and medical tattoos, who thought the busy business park would be an ideal setting for her new venture.
Based in Beehive - which recently underwent a full makeover of its own - Ms O'Neill offers everything from permanent makeup and tattoo removal to wrinkle-relaxing injections, vampire facials and skin peels. She works alongside Jennie Smith who specialises in cosmetic and beauty therapies such as make-up, HD brows, nails, contouring and spray tans.
She said: "I wanted to train in permanent make-up and paramedical tattooing after reading about people who needed help after chemotherapy or surgery. It literally changed their lives, but I couldn't afford it initially.
"Then I was made redundant and was able to use my redundancy to train - I believe in fate, it was meant to be.
"Now I've been in business for five years and have worked freelance all over the North East, but I was tired of the travelling and wanted my own base.
"I chose Lingfield Point as I have clients travelling for three hours for treatments, so my priority was easy access from the A1, A19 and train station and bus service, with free car parking.
"I also hoped that having Jennie as a beautician would provide a service to the people working at Lingfield Point and surrounding businesses."
Estate manager Eddie Humphries said: "It is always great to welcome new businesses to the neighbourhood.
"Our facilities are first class - from our fabulous broadband connectivity - essential for today's businesses - to our 24 hour on-site concierge and security service and extensive car parking.
"The Cosmetics Room will add more colour to our exceptional facilities such as on site bus service, a cafe bistro, child care nursery, book swap club and our busy calendar of activities.
"With around 3,000 people based here I can see the Cosmetics Room is going to be very busy."
Beehive is home to a range of businesses from the public and private sector including architectural practice FaulknerBrowns, NFU, NFU Mutual and internet firm Easy Web.
