Did the construction process run seamlessly or were there any hiccups?

The BJS team had both our stores completed within 4 weeks. Hiccups are always expected particularly when you takeover previously occupied spaces but thankfully it never seemed to bother the team.

Why is the layout of your store so important to you?

The fit-out is the first impression our customers have of the brand so its needs to be perfect.

What aspects do you love most about the store?

The wood detailing around the bar and the brown leather chesterfield beauty beds!

Have you had positive feedback on the layout?

We get positive feedback all the time. We have people (not customers) daily walk into the salon just to look at the layout.

What makes working and/or living in Brisbane great?

The weather in Brisbane is perfect for our industry. Our clients don’t need to cover up in winter so are always up for some sprucing.

What exciting things are you looking forward to?

We are famous for our nail parties! And due to their success we have just released beauty parties which include brow, lash, facial and spray tan parties, our customers love coming in with their bestie for a makeover and a cocktail.
