A popular beauty salon has moved to a new and larger premises in Kintore.
Belle Marie was initially run from a small room in Inverurie but has now moved to a bigger location on School Road in Kintore.
Speaking about the move salon owner, Rhea Robinson, said: “The building when we first saw it was a bit of a mess but we have transformed the run-down building into an unrecognisable salon.”
Rhea has been doing beauty treatments for around six years.
She started her training while she was working offshore as a stewardess in the North Sea.
Rhea explained: “I wanted a change and put myself through all my courses.
“I started working from home and it built up to a full-time self-employed job working from a small room on Market Place.
“I worked in Inverurie for three or four years and just decided I wanted to expand and take on staff and here we are with Leanne Reid and another member of staff set to join in January.”
Rhea added: “I hope to grow even more, who knows what can happen in five years - all this has!
“I’m super proud of what we have achieved in the last few years.”
Belle Marie offers a range of different beauty treatments and has three brand new sunbeds, two of which are the first of their kind in the UK.
