Beautonic, a new concept in walk-in beauty salons, has opened its first salon in Chester’s Forum Shopping Centre.

The ground-floor salon offers a wide range of beauty services including eyelash extensions, tinting, waxing as well as eyebrow threading and massage.

Owner Ashok Bangar said the walk-in service was particularly popular with working women who value the convenience of a walk-in service, with no appointment necessary.

His fully-trained staff of beauty technicians undergo continuous training.

Mr Bangar, who opened his first Beautonic salon in his home town of Evesham, Worcestershire, less than two years ago, said: “Busy professionals find our availability convenient and time saving. We decided to open a branch in Chester because it is such a beautiful city that attracts lots of tourists being one of the country’s top cultural locations.

“Our philosophy is always to put the customer first and focus on providing a first-class service. It is a policy that seems to work for us because we now have stylish, relaxing Beautonic salons at six locations across the country.”
