It has been a busy few months for Natalie Tai and the girls at the Powder Room in Birstall.

Not only has the salon just celebrated its 10th birthday, but the staff have been busy giving next door a makeover as the business gets set to expand.

The Powder Room, in Low Lane, has renovated the former DIY store in a bid to offer more beauty treatments.

Salon manager Natalie organised a celebratory party which was well attended by the salon’s loyal clientele and staff members.

She said: “It was like a 60 minute makeover.

“We were still putting paint on the walls just before the launch. It was hectic.”

Natalie founded the business on her own a decade ago but always had her heart set on expanding the salon.

She said: “The shop next door had been a charity shop for 25 years and when I heard they were leaving, I told the owners I would be interested.

“A DIY store moved in briefly but then I got the call to say we could have it.”

Natalie and her team spent months giving the next shop a makeover before the celebrations.

She said: “We showed everyone around and had a few drinks to celebrate. It has been a dream come true.

“It was really nice to dress up like a girl for a change after months of painting and pushing a wheelborrow around.”
