Salon Information | About the Owner
My name is Rowena and I’m the owner, therapist and manager of Ro’s Beauty Spot Home Based Salon in Benoni and Alberton.
I started my career in 2005, when I enrolled at Camelot Health and Skincare College. I completed my two year diploma in Health and Skincare with distinction and was top overall student on the East Rand Campus.
I thus have completed my SAASHP (South African) and CIDESCO (International) qualification in Facials, waxing, massage (Swedish and Aromatherapy), manicures, pedicures, body therapy which includes slimming and firming treatments, diet and nutrition, reflexology (first year) and Bio Sculpture Gel nails.
I completed my 400 practical hours at Beautywithin Skincare Salon, the college and at a local retirement village.
I then joined the Beautywithin team for a short duration, where I went onto to become head therapist at Annique Skincare Clinic in Kempton Park. I stayed at Annique for 18 months where I went on to manage and grow one of the Placecol Beauty Centre’s for a year and lastly but not least I then coordinated a Virgin Spa Salon in Sandtonfor a few months. After much convincing from friends and family I decided to give my own salon a try and have been self-employed for 6 years now and loving every minute of it.
In the three years I worked for other businesses I gained huge amounts of experience and appreciation for the industry. I gained strength and passion as a therapist and feel I give a little bit of myself to every treatment I do. I would not see myself doing any other job and because I love my job so much I feel I never work a day in my life. i enjoy my clients and have a special relationship with each.
I have a wonderfully supportive husband who shares my passion and love for the industry. He’s been my rock and business mind way too often and I’m grateful to have him as part of my business and life.
Ro’s Beauty Spot Salon – based in Benoni and now in Alberton – is homely, small and comfortable, but private and clean.
The services I offer:
- Waxing (Hot wax and cold wax)
- Bio Sculpture Gel Nails
- Facials (using Annique Products)
