Sonya Zabiela and Beckie Kelling had a clear vision of what they wanted from their new enterprise, based at the Fleur du Jardin in Castel.
“We wanted to create a discreet, tranquil oasis of calm and professionalism for our clientele and at the same time be able to cater for the growing desires of the people of Guernsey for something special and different”.
The Lavender Rooms is a sumptuous salon which exudes the peaceful setting the girls were trying to achieve. As the name would suggest, the salon is bathed in subtle purple tones, nestled in the trees which surround the Fleur.
After more than ten years experience as beauty therapists, Sonya and Beckie, both knew the island was crying out for a salon which provided top quality products in an environment that was warm and welcoming.
Many people do not know level of commitment and expertise which goes into building and maintaining a thriving salon. There is a high level of training in the products used and even the selection of those products demands a knowledge and understanding of the industry to ensure the right choices are made.
Sonya and Beckie are Decléor trained and, within six months of opening, they were awarded the “Decléor Aroma Gold Award”, which now makes The Lavender Rooms an Accredited Decléor Aroma Gold Salon.
There is no disputing the quality of the Decléor products and, when used by experts, the results are magnificent. Through 30 years of research into the science of Aromatherapy, Decléor, the specialist in Aroma-Skincare, has created a unique, natural approach to caring for your skin.
`They continued to maintain this high standard and have been accredited Decleor Aroma Gold Salon every year since being open. In 2012 the salon was awarded Decleor Beauty Salon of the Year. A national Award that all 900 Decleor salons across the UK were able to enter.`
The Decléor range includes face, body, men and sun, and can treat all skin types from normal to dry, mature, oily and combination and sensitive and reactive. It is 100% pure, 100% natural, 100% preservative-free.
“They are really beautiful products and we were very pleased and fortunate to be awarded such a prestigious award in such a short space of time”.
