Our latest featured Guest Blog is Georgina Georgiu from Pure Beauty Spa.
NewinZurich: Georgina, tell us a little bit about yourself and how new you are to Zurich.
Georgina: I moved to Zurich a while ago so strictly speaking I am not ‘New in Zurich’, but the business, Pure Beauty Spa, is! My sister, Alexandra, and I are partners and we are both UK certified, experienced professional Beauty Therapists with over fifteen years’ experience working in the beauty and spa industry in the UK and abroad. We were previously located in Greece where we successfully owned and managed the same business there too.
NewInZurich: So how did you start your business in Zurich?
Georgina: After a couple of months in Zurich I soon realised that I either had to speak German fluently or start my own business so I did an intensive German course and created a website. During this time I had made quite a few contacts and had a number of regular clients and together with my sister started searching for permanent premises which we found in a great location in Seefeld with parking for our customers too! Pure Beauty Spa now has a new lease of life – this time in Zurich instead of our home town in Greece. We realise how lucky we are and how many people dream about doing something like this every day.
NewInZurich: What was the hardest thing about starting your own business and living your dream?
Georgina: Getting the salon up and running was a huge challenge especially as we both do not speak German. We signed the contracts and got the keys in mid-October, and that’s when the real work began. We had originally thought it would take us two weeks but that proved to be very unrealistic and so one month later we very happily opened our doors. Perseverance is the name of the game!
NewInZurich: So what does Pure Beauty Spa offer?
Georgina: We offer a premium range of professional beauty and spa treatments for both men and women. From essential beauty treatments (facials, waxing, nails, massage) to specialised treatments such as spa body treatments, non-surgical face lifting, microdermabrasion, red vein and pigmentation treatments, permanent hair removal and cellulite reducing treatments. We use and retail some of the best, world renowned spa brands in the industry. Such as Elemis, OPI, CND Shellac, Jane Iredale Skincare Makeup, LND:Skins sunless tanning system, Lycon Precision Waxing and Pukka Teas, to name but a few. We also offer gift cards which can be purchased online, over the phone or at the spa. We can even send them out to you.
