Hannah Moore, aged 21, is the owner of Allora Nails and Beauty based in Harlington.

She said: “I’ve loved doing nails since I was 15 years old. I used to buy cheap kits off eBay and do my friend's nails.”

After a brief stint in childcare education, Hannah realised beauty was her passion and moved to the Oracle Hair and Beauty School in the town centre.

“I never thought I could make a business from beauty and it was a big scary jump but it’s great,” she continued.

“I’m my own boss and I get to do what I love all day.

“I don’t see this as a job - I can be working 15 hour days and not complain.

“My clients have become my friends and I love to see people’s faces when their nails are done.”

The premises used to be a village shop. In August 2019, residents submitted 28 objections to it being turned into a salon on the grounds of parking and character of the area - but these were not upheld and Allora Nails and Beauty opened in September 2019.

Hannah said: “There was a bit of aggro when we first opened but thankfully that’s died down now.

“I think it’s better that someone local has set something up rather than it becoming a takeaway.

“The reaction has been really positive so far.”

“They’ve known it as a shop for a long time but my step-dad has done some amazing building work inside and now it looks completely different.”

The event will be held from 11am - 3pm and there will be drinks, food, goody bags and a chance to mingle.

The salon is looking to expand and has a treatment room and a makeup station for rent.
