Join Jesmond’s Glam Squad

Newcastle Skin Clinic owner Luisa Scott has opened a brand new champagne beauty bar providing make-up, hair styling and nail treatments.

Glam Squad Express comes only weeks after the businesswoman expanded her business to the first floor of 68 Jesmond Road West, in order to make way for her second start-up, which has also seen her partner with hair extensions specialist Mark Summers.

The basement floor is now home to Glam Squad Express which boasts itself as a one-stop-shop for all things beauty.

“We provide a variety of services from a quick blow-dry style to a full VIP makeover,” said Ms Scott.

“Each client is normally finished within one hour, making our salon the perfect spot to get ready for a night out, corporate event or special occasion.”

Five new members of staff have been enlisted to join the team including make-up artists Rachael Dawson and Emily Rowell, Hair stylists Rachael Turnbull and Rebecca Heslop and nail technician Zoe Needham.

In order to ensure the best service from staff, two celebrity beauty experts visited the salon during the staff training period to share some of their knowledge and experience.

In order to ensure the best service from staff make-up artist Tracey Jones, who has worked on shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, and David Fletcher, head of education for the hair salon within Urban Retreat at Harrods, visited the salon during the staff training period to share some of their knowledge and experience.

Ms Scott said: “I’m delighted to bring together a young group of talented professionals from across the region to form our seven-strong Glam Squad and introduce a unique service to Newcastle.

“It was fantastic to have Tracey and David visit us from London for a training day which the team all loved. They picked up some quick tips and it really helped them to hone their skills.”

The salon’s Jesmond location is easily accessible from Newcastle city centre and offers on-street parking.
