Well 2020 certainly has thrown a lot at us so far hasn't it? While there have been plenty of strange and difficult times to deal with, the team at TruYou have also had some very exciting plans come to life!
At the beginning of this year, we welcomed Penny Honey to our team. Penny is a very experienced Beauty Therapist and over the last 5 years has become a master in the art of Cosmetic Tattoo. She had a fantastic little business providing many clients with beautifully sculpted brows, artistic lash liner and gorgeous lips with her increasingly popular lip blush service.
In addition, Penny established a training academy where she shares her skills and expertise to train other beauty practitioners and cosmetic estheticians in Cosmetic Tattoo. With a shared commitment to high industry standards and a strong background in training within the TruYou team also, it was a natural progression to expand this part of the business, to offer a range of advanced appearance medicine technique training and develop Northland's first specialised cosmetic academy.
We are very excited to soon be opening the doors to our new purpose-fitted cosmetic clinic and academy training location. This bright and airy space will be home for all of our client services, including anti-wrinkle injections, advanced skin therapies and cosmetic tattoo, as well as a fabulous new training room for our future students.
We are at level one 105 Cameron Street, in the heart of Whangarei's city centre. Below you'll see a quick video taken about a week ago as the new re-fit was well and truly underway. This week we are putting finishing touches on things as we move in furniture, treatment beds and create a welcoming space for our clients and students alike.
