Knutsford’s Roberta Beauty celebrates 10 years in business
The salon, which is run by owner, Roberta Dyer, first opened its doors on 8 December 2008 and since then the business has grown significantly and moved to new, bigger premises on Minshull Street last December.
“When I started the business with my mum, Sue Bradley, in 2008, it was just the two of us sat there waiting for the phone to ring. And now, the salon has grown beyond belief; we have a fabulous new home in the heart of Knutsford and employ seven members of staff.”
The popular salon provides a wide range of health and beauty treatments, including massage, facials, spray tans, threading, face mapping, waxing and nails. Passionate about skincare, Roberta Beauty Redefined offers customised Dermalogica skincare treatments from therapists who have trained at the International Dermal Institute.
Roberta Beauty Redefined also works with a team of specialists to offer its clients a complete head-to-toe experience. Dr Tim Pearce specialises in non-surgical aesthetic rejuvenation and provides SkinViva anti-wrinkle injections, while highly experienced therapist, Rudi Henry, offers acupuncture, reiki, reflexology and cranial sacral therapy.
Podiatrist, Lindsay Ward of Perfect Podiatry provides a full range of foot treatments while Candice Lennox of Touch 21 is on hand to remove skin tags, milia, thread veins and eye bags and also offers jaw tightening treatments and neck lifts. Sports therapy is available from sports massage therapist, Jon Smith, Helen Quixall specialises in semi-permanent make-up and derma-planning and resident make-up artist and lash specialist, Emma Morgan delivers the all-important finishing touches.
Community has always been at the heart of Roberta Beauty Redefined and is one of the reasons for its continued success. As well as running regular pop-up salons, Roberta recently took part in the town’s popular Pumpkin Path and organised a Beauty and Fashion Night at Knutsford’s Market Hall to help raise awareness of local businesses.
She explained: “I love going into local businesses and setting up pop-up salons. It’s important for them to offer customers something that they can’t get online. High street stores need to offer lovely, interactive experiences to entice customers in and I’m passionate about encouraging people to ‘shop local’ and support the town’s independent traders.”
Roberta plans to celebrate her landmark anniversary with a soirée for clients on Friday 23 November. As well as mouth-watering canapés from local business, the Market Café and fizz from independent wine merchant, Morgan Edwards, there will be a raffle with some fantastic prizes, unmissable special offers on products and Christmas gifts and live music to get everyone in the party mood.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with my lovely clients, many of whom have been with me from the beginning,” said Roberta.
Looking ahead to the next ten years, Roberta plans to take on additional staff, would like to continue to play an active part in Knutsford’s thriving community and wants to help people focus more on their health and well-being. She added: “We live in a busy, modern word and I want to help people disconnect from technology and encourage them to engage more in touch and relaxation.”
