Annamarie Allen began her first business venture when “AMA Total Beauty” started trading on February 20.
Her salon is based on St Asaph Avenue, at the site previously occupied by “Gossip Girl Beauty Salon”, which closed earlier this month.
An open day on Saturday, February 18 also proved a great success for Annamarie, who has worked in the industry for nearly one year.
She said: “It went absolutely incredibly; so much better than we thought it would.
“We had people pop in randomly, who had seen the newspaper article, and they booked treatments, which was great.
“Yesterday was phenomenal; again, lots of people just walked in for treatments. It was so good; the atmosphere in Saturday was electric; like something I’ve never seen before.
“Everybody was saying how beautiful the salon looked, and how well we’d done to get it ready in such a short space of time. We did it all in eight days.
“Just seeing the place full was my highlight. To take a step back and think: ‘That’s my salon; I’ve pulled it off’. It really was quite overwhelming; I didn’t want to lock up!
“It was so nice that people just came along and supported us; I can’t thank them enough for doing that.”

It had been operating for more than two years prior to shutting its doors.
