What’s the name of the salon/business?

Oh So Hasty Nails and Beauty Academy

Are you the owner?


What’s the address?

I am based in Coven Beauty Salon Academy

Lineva House,

Unit 20,

Milner Street,



How many employees do you have?

I rent a room in the salon under Oh So Hasty Nails and Beauty Academy. I am a sole trader with no employees.

When did you open the salon?

I have been running my own business again for four years. I owned a business for nine years under the name D Nails and Beauty but gave up because I lost my confidence. I started back up again a few years ago and have been based in Coven Beauty Salon Academy for a week. I love it here - everyone is so lovely. It’s great working with such a talented team that offers a variety of hair and nail and beauty treatments.

Has it always been in the same location?

I worked from home for a couple of years prior to moving to Coven.

Are you local to the area? Did you grow up here?

I moved to Warrington when I was eight with my foster mum and dad, who to this day help and support me.

Tell me a bit about your salon/business

I named myself Oh So Hasty as I was always making impulsive decisions like giving up my business! I always wanted my own clothing brand and wondered what I could call my brand. I googled another word for impulsive and hasty came up - light bulb moment!

Why did you decide to open your own salon? Why this type of business?

When I gave up my business, I had several jobs and slowly started to rebuild my confidence. I missed doing nails and beauty so I decided to restart in October 2019.

Were you open before/during/after the Covid-19 pandemic? How did this affect your business?

Covid hit hard and I couldn’t work. My passion has always been to teach so I got in contact with an accreditation company online and put my acrylic, gel polish and builder gel courses together. I now offer these courses and I’m looking to offer more courses in the future.

What’s your hair and beauty background?

I have been in the nail and beauty industry for 21 years and I love all my clients and students who come through my door.

What services do you provide?

The services I offer are:

Acrylic Nails

Builder Gel nails

Gel polish Hands and toes



Eyelash extensions


Eyebrow shaping and tinting

Eyelash tinting

I offer courses online and at the academy and I am looking at branding my own cuticle oils.

What makes your business different to others in the same area/field? What sets your business apart from your competitors?

I don’t like to see myself in competition with anyone, as we all have our own styles.

Why do loyal clients return to your business?

My clients would say the treatments I offer last a while. I always try and build a relationship with my clients.

What’s next? What do the next few months hold for you and your salon?

Over the next few months, I want to start my own brand of cuticle oils and continue to grow the business, through treatments and the courses I offer. I am looking forward to my future based in Coven Salon Beauty Academy. I am really happy here as it’s such a good vibe. The girls and guys have been here three years and have built an amazing salon. They have two salon dogs who are absolutely adorable, so I am so excited to see what the future holds.
