A ‘beauty and comfort salon’ that caters for ‘the rich’
The salon is owned by a private equity investor, who wants to make its brand into an ‘elite beauty and comfort spa’ for ‘people who need a luxury experience’.
The luxury spa has been dubbed ‘elites spa’ after it offers spa treatments and spa services including ‘high-end facial hair removal’ and ‘treatments for hair loss’.
The salon owner, who has not been named, told News.co.nz he hopes to attract more people to his business and is planning to open a new location in Dunedin’s CBD later this year.
‘The beauty and relaxation business has been on the decline for years and I think we need to get back on the right path and see if we can continue to build our brand as an elite beauty and wellness spa,’ Mr Trew said.
‘We have some really strong people here and we’re really excited to get started.’
Mr Tretwin’s salon will also cater for ‘those who need luxury experiences’, according to its website.
The salon will offer a full-service spa treatment, which costs $200 a session and will include: ‘Treatments to your facial hair, scalp and nails for an instant glow’ and will last for two hours, the salon’s website states.
‘Warm massage, deep body massage, massage for the face, neck and back, massage to help relax and rejuvenate’ are also offered, according to the website.
‘Conducted for over 20 years, this is the most comprehensive facial and body massage and treatment service on the planet.
The most affordable treatment for all your needs’ According to Mr Trenwin, the spa’s main focus will be ‘the wealthy’.
‘There’s been a lot of hype around our salon, people are looking to come in here for a good time,’ he said.
‘It’s going to be a luxury spa and they’re going to have access to all the best treatments, from massage to treatments for your facial and hair.
‘This is a luxury salon and I’m not saying that this is an elite spa, but I’m sure they are.’
‘We’re all about luxury and we want to cater for the rich, so that they can come in and enjoy themselves, and they can get the massage, the treatment, the hair removal and the treatments for their hair loss.’
The business has also been targeted by social media users, with many saying they’d like to attend a spa experience.
‘If you’re a rich person and you want to get a spa treatment or a treatment that costs $2000 you don’t need to go to the spa, you just go to an elite salon,’ Mr Ndokha said.’
I’m a very well-off person and if I can’t have a luxury treatment I’m going to take my chances to go somewhere like this.’
Mr Nlugo said he would not be surprised if the salon would attract more customers if it opened, and he said he hoped to expand its offerings.
‘I think the more people that can come here, we can grow and we can be more successful,’ he told News Breakfast.
‘I hope that there’s some more people who can come to the salon and it’ll get better.’
‘I have a feeling this will be a very successful venture, but if I do get to open more locations then I think it’s important for us to keep on growing.’
