THE old Avon Inflatables in Dafen, which has operated as “Dafen Trade Park” since 2015, has gained a glamorous new addition.
Glam Tanning and Beauty will be a one-stop-shop for all things hair and beauty, creating over 30 jobs.
Laura Harries, who previously ran a salon in the Machynys area, said she was delighted to be expanding:
“When the opportunity for the large unit in Dafen came up I took it with both hands. We are recruiting a minimum of 36 new staff members, from experienced hairdressers, nail technicians, beauty therapists and customer service staff. They’ll all have the opportunity to learn new skills and gain qualifications via local colleges. I had built up a loyal customer base in my previous salon, and I’m excited to be bringing them with me as well as attracting new customers here.”
Visiting Glam Tan on their opening day, Lee Waters MS said:
“It was great to pop into Glam Tan, to wish Laura Harries and her team good luck with their bold new venture in Dafen Trade park. She’s put huge effort, and all she has, into creating what she says is the UK’s largest hair, beauty and tanning salon all under one roof. She’s had the backing of the Welsh Government’s Development Bank for Wales and will be opening in phases over the coming weeks. Pob lwc Lauren!”
Also visiting Glam Tan, Nia Griffith MP said: ““Hats off to businesswoman Laura for her vision in setting up this stunning all-in beauty salon….and I wish her and her great team of staff every success.”
