Shrewsbury beauty training school expands!

A nail and beauty training school in Shrewsbury has moved premises to cope with a boom in demand from therapists from across the county.

Dragonfly Nail and Beauty Academy has launched the rebranded business at its new premises at Tower Park, Ennerdale Road in Shrewsbury.

Donna Law, director of Dragonfly, said the latest move was needed due to the increase in people wanting to train in gel nails.

“I’ve been training people for five years after successfully running three of my own beauty salons named The Burgundy Suite for ten years, but I have always specialised in nails since joining the industry twenty years ago.

“The beauty industry is certainly thriving in Shropshire and people are even travelling from outside of the county to train at the academy as the courses are short and give the results they want,” Mrs Law, 55, said.

“I specialise in delivering short courses which teaches the clients the skills they want without dragging it over a week or more for the sake of it - they range from half-a-day to two days long.”

The academy which offers specialist gel nail courses, manicure and pedicure courses, nail art, spray tanning and will be introducing facial waxing and eyelash extensions, is accredited by the Associated Beauty Therapists.

The beauty expert said this accreditation enabled her clients to immediately get their own insurance, meaning they could work immediately after completing the courses which they could not do if the course they completed was not recognised by insurance companies.

She said people booking on to her courses included those who wanted to update their skills to move with the latest beauty trends, new mums who wanted to start their own business for the first time and also hair salon owners who wanted to expand their business with a beauty service. Dragonfly courses range from £50 to £200.
