Anna Inglis, 32, is owner of Elegant Touch Beauty, based at Mercia Marina near Willington.

She is trebling the size of her salon, which will offer treatments, many that are said to be favourites of celebrities including Katie Price and Kerry Katona.

Speaking about the salon’s reopening, Anna said: “I can’t wait for the opening!

“We will offer our clients a better, even more luxurious experience, and it’s also better for staff who will have more room to work.”

With greater space comes a greater opportunity to increase offerings.

Anna will offer a larger variety of treatments by premium beauty brands including Elemis.

Anna’s beauty journey started when she was 18-years-old where she worked from a rented salon room in Hilton, Derbyshire.

Two years later in 2014, she heard about the new Boardwalk shopping and leisure development at Mercia Marina from one of her clients and took on one of the vacant units.

Now, Elegant Touch Beauty is expanding into a two-storey unit at Mercia Marina from Wednesday, July 10, that until recently was occupied by interiors store Zing.

Anna, who has plans to introduce a raft of new services, said: "Things have gone really well. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better start in my career or more lovely clients.

“I was born in Torquay, so you could say that I have always been drawn to the water. The marina was our first big premises, and we have really made a success of our business here."

Expansion plans started when the owner of Zing decided to retire, offering Anna the opportunity to take over the larger premises next door.

Anna added: "Over the years, we had become a little tight on space due to our immense growth, but by taking over the unit next door, we are in effect trebling in size.

“I have such an amazing team and I am only managing to expand because of them. They are such good girls who really do care about our clients and the salon. I cannot thank them enough.”

To celebrate the business’ continued success, Elegant Touch Beauty will host a glamorous opening event on July 27 with a singer, goodie bags, free samples and special offers. There will also be a welcome glass of fizz for visitors.

Anna will be offering Lipofirm Pro, an advanced solution for non-invasive body sculpting, fat reduction and skin tightening that, according to the brand website, has been used by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Katie Price and Kerry Katona.

Other services offered by the salon include deluxe manicures, pedicures, IPL treatments and massages.

Anna said: “From indulgent skincare to exquisite home décor, we are expanding our shop to make visiting Elegant Touch Beauty an even more enjoyable experience.

“Some of the brands previously sold by Zing will also be making a reappearance, so that customers can still purchase them at the marina.”

The business has also secured a premises licence enabling it to offer group bookings for things like hen parties, birthdays, and kids’ pamper parties. Anna is also keen to forge partnerships with other businesses at the marina to offer food for those events.

Robert Neff, general manager at Mercia Marina, said: “The expansion of Elegant Touch Beauty is just one of many success stories here at Mercia Marina.

"The marina is home to some amazing independent retailers and seeing some of our original tenants moving into larger premises is a celebration for us all. We wish Anna the very best for the future of her business."
