Get to Know Jenna
We have been delighted to see a lot of new faces in recent months, so much so that we thought we would all re-introduce ourselves.
Third in our series is... our owner, Jenna.
How long have you been with BB?
9 months! It has absolutely flown by too. I was so excited to purchase the salon from Victoria and the girls have all made me feel really at home and welcome since starting.
Why did you join Be Beautiful?
I have lived in the country my entire life so I love that the salon is in a country village. I love the rapport the clients and team have and the incredible reputation Victoria, Pamela, Prudence and Rachel have built.
What are you most excited about in 2022?
I cannot wait to see the salon complete after the refurbishment is complete. I struggle to have patience with things so that fact that it is taking a few months is annoying for me but I know it is the right decision for the team and clients. I also cannot wait to introduce more new treatments to the salon. Since launching Lash Extensions, they have been a huge hit. I love seeing the team grow and enjoy their work.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
To be relentless. Before, I used to get upset when things went wrong, now I just look for another way to make them work.
What do you love most about what you do?
Every day is different. One day I could be placing orders or speaking with clients, the next I am booking trainings for the team or meeting with building contractors.
Tell us a surprising or a fun fact about you?
I used to sing and act. I thought nothing of jumping on a stage in front of thousands of people and singing, dancing or acting. Now I couldn't imagine anything worse.
What is one thing you are most proud of?
My incredible family. My husband has also built an amazing business which I am incredible proud of him for doing and my three children Annie, Isabella & Freddie are my world. Everything we do is for them. In work, this year I won Young Entrepreneur of the Year & Young Businesswoman of the Year - these were huge moments for me and I am still in shock.
What is your favourite treatment to give or receive?
Definitely my nails - I hate not having them done!
If you won ten million pounds today, what is the first thing you’d buy?
A holiday home. My husband and I work really long hours so I would love for us to have somewhere to escape to, to spend more time with our children.
What was your first job?
Working in a Newsagents - and I loved it! I loved having my own money and independence.
What did you want to be when you were little?
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Chicken on chips with cheese and chicken gravy - I love bad food!
