Studio Beauty – Time For You

December 15th, 2020

Back in February of this year, Ruth Window decided to take the plunge and open her own unique beauty salon – Studio Beauty.

Having worked in the beauty industry for many years, including a stint on cruise ships, Ruth decided the time was right to make the move, and created a space just outside Abergavenny near Goytre on the A4042 for her new salon. Boasting an idyllic countryside setting, Studio Beauty has two treatment rooms, a nail and pedicure zone and relaxation area. It is a quiet, calming space where beauty, kindness and laughter come together in combination with an extensive selection of treatments, so that clients can feel fully relaxed and experience something truly unique. With handy onsite car parking, visitors can arrive feeling calm in the knowledge that they can park just outside, instead of grappling to find an in-town car parking spot.

Ruth is her own walking advert for the salon because Studio Beauty only offers the treatments that Ruth herself truly believes in, that she knows works and happily performs on herself. This commitment to her practice is certain to offer any potential client peace of mind. Ruth also takes great care in researching every treatment offered and product available, using high-end brands to ensure that clients benefit not only from quality, but desired individual results.

You can explore Studio Beauty’s website for a full list of treatments available by visiting however some examples of treatments on offer are: The Gel Bottle nails with No Parabens and Cruelty free; OPI; Sienna X Spray Tan Paraben & Cruelty free; Hair Removal; Back Massage; HD Brows & HD Brow Sculpt; Ellebanna Lash Lift; NeoElegance Light therapy, proven by NASA to improve skin concerns; DermaPlaning; Hyaluron Pen Fillers, using Hyaluronic acid a natural substance in the human body; and Fat Dissolving treatments.

Visiting clients can rest assured that many safety measures have been put in place to ensure that Studio Beauty is fully Covid secure. It will be just you and Ruth in the salon at any one time too, so you are guaranteed safe, attentive and professional service every time.

The salon is open Tuesday to Friday with late night openings on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Why not enjoy some time for you? Look out for Pamper Saturdays coming in the new year!
