A BEAUTY and training salon is taking its next steps after opening a new unit in Westbrook.

Naked Beauty and Training, formerly located in The Stables on Erwood Street has moved to the Westbrook Centre four months after applying for planning permission.

The empty Unit 13 has been transformed into a one-stop salon, filling a gap for Westbrook residents.

Sarah Russell, 30, who set up the business, said: "It's just grown so quickly.

"We offer all your beauty and holistic options- a bit like a spa day!

"Because it's so varied in the beauty industry, it's hard to fit everything in but I never wanted to just be a nail bar."

Since opening in November, the salon has received lots of good feedback which Sarah hopes will continue when training courses launch next month.

She added: "People are just really pleased that it's now open.

"There was nothing like this here before."
