Third Guinot franchise salon opens in London

The third Guinot franchise salon has opened its doors in Earlsfield, London, run by Justyna Rostek, who was previously manager of Guinot’s company-owned flagship salon in Albemarle Street, Mayfair.

Having decided to open her own salon as a franchisee, Rostek secured a high-street site in Earlsfield. The property was previously a hair salon and it took it took three months to complete the refurbishment and fit out the salon to Guinot’s franchise specifications.

The salon opened on Thursday, a launch times to coincide with the switching on of the Christmas lights in the area. Rostek was joined by the Mayor of Wandsworth, Nicola Nardelli, and celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott to cut the ribbon on the new salon.

The salon was headline sponsor for the Christmas lights event giving Rostek strong local marketing. During the opening night, over 100 potential new clients passed through the doors of the salon.

Rostek said, “It has always been an ambition of mine to run my own salon, but it was a daunting prospect to go out alone and make a name for myself. It was because of this that I was attracted to the idea of becoming a franchisee, as I will be part of an established network that receives ongoing support and advice from a dedicated franchise team. So far the team has helped me every step of the way, and I know that this support will continue throughout the life of my franchise agreement.”

All Guinot franchises offer the brand’s face and body treatments, including the Hydardermie2 facial and the Advanced TechniSpa slimming and firming body treatments.

Guinot’s other two franchise salons opened in Darlington in 2013, and Gerrard’s Cross, Buckinghamshire, in 2014.
