Salon in the Spotlight: Pinks Beauty Therapy, Crawley

While working with Excel Airways, Jennifer qualified and set up her beauty business, offering treatments alongside flying. Jennifer named her business Pinks Beauty Therapy in honour of her family, as a tribute to her great grandmother, Caroline Pink.

When Excel Airways went into administration, Jennifer didn’t feel ready to make the leap into self-employment, so she opted to take a job at Virgin Atlantic.

Jennifer now works from home in her converted garage, which was officially open for business in September 2021. From here, she offers massages, Temple Spa facials, manicures, pedicures, Shellac, lash lift, tinting, and waxing.

“I absolutely love treating my clients and meeting new ones. I take great pride in my treatments and my beauty room, which I love. I also love hosting pamper parties from my salon,” Jennifer enthuses.
