After progressing to management, in 2000 Joanna purchased the business and began to put her own mark on the salon.


In 2012 the salon moved to much larger premises within Poulshot, offering the best possible environment for treatments. Joanna has continued to train with many prestigious brands such as Decleor, Elemis, CACI, CND, Nouvatan, Apilus and Tibby Olivier.
