The fifth franchise salon of French skincare brand Guinot has opened in Cricklewood, North London.
Franchisee Gulshin Nawaz (pictured) officially opened the three-treatment-room salon alongside the brand’s international franchise director Edouard Falguieres on July 20.
The frontage of the salon, on the site of a former estate agent, was replaced to create a welcoming, open feel. Guinot-trained Nawaz formerly ran a home-based salon. She embarked on the franchise journey after meeting Falguieres and Guinot UK managing director Chris Gillam at Professional Beauty London in 2016.
Nawaz commented: “I am passionate about being a beauty therapist but had a slight hesitation in opening a salon, knowing how demanding it could be. I overcame my fear knowing that I had support anytime I required it.”
This marks the fifth Guinot franchise in the UK. There are also two company-owned salons in Ascot, Berkshire, and Greystones, Ireland.
