First Guinot franchise opens in Ireland

Guinot’s first Irish franchise has opened in Celbridge, Co. Kildare.

The salon opened its doors on February 16. Franchisee Valerie Craven, who trained with Guinot 30 years ago, was joined by international franchise director Edouard Falguieres to cut the ribbon.

The former jewellery shop on Celbridge’s high street has been made over in Guinot’s signature red and white branding and has three treatment rooms.

Craven said: “I am very excited about my new venture. It took a while to secure the property, but from then everything moved very quickly and the transformation took only a matter of weeks. I am very much looking forward to being part of the Guinot franchise network and developing my business in 2017.”
