Bury St Edmunds beauty therapist Georgia Ring delighted after relocation of Nea’s Retreat to bigger premises





An independent beauty salon owner is over the moon after moving into new and bigger premises in a Suffolk town which has caused an emotional reaction from her clients.

Georgia Ring, 26, has relocated her business, Nea’s Retreat Beauty Salon, from the Nowton estate to Bedell Close in Bury St Edmunds, where she is now living with her partner.

After making the move at the end of January, the self-employed beauty therapist has steadily grown her client base and has credited them for being a big factor in the relocation.

“The whole reason really that I designed the salon and decided to make it way better than my last one is because my wonderful ladies deserve that,” Georgia said.

“They deserve to get a treatment done in a lovely room where they feel calm, relaxed and be with someone they feel comfortable with. Being able to do that and to see their reaction, that's absolutely what I've done it for.

“I've had ladies crying when they've come in because they're so overwhelmed and so proud of me. They're honestly just the nicest people.

“On top of that, my family have just been so supportive and keep saying how proud they are of me which is really nice to hear as well.”

At the age of 23, Georgia opened her own beauty salon in her parents’ house in April 2021 and had no client base after the spa she was working at was shut down.

She now has about 60 clients and with the upgrade of her new salon to a different part of Bury, she is hoping to welcome new customers.

Georgia said: “When I was at college, I wanted to be self-employed and have my own salon, but everyone has their little dream that they don’t think is going to happen, so I think 16-year-old me would be so proud of myself when I think about it.

“Now coming here, my client base is good already, but it’s really exciting and I can take on more clients as I have more room now.

“I’ve honestly been absolutely blown away the last week or so and it’s been incredible really.

“It feels like the start of our lives now. We are in our own home and I own the room as well which isn't in my parents’ home, so I feel really good about it all.”

After moving into her new home with her partner, Jedd Riley, 26, Georgia has a bigger room for her salon which is double the size of her previous one.

She also has rebranded her business including a new logo and is looking to bring in new treatments.

Despite the recent relocation, Georgia is already planning for the future with an eye on moving to an outbuilding in the garden later down the line and an eventual aim of opening a beauty salon in the town centre.
