New eco-friendly Aveda Concept salon opens in Castlebar
Castlebar business woman Joan Rowland, who runs the very successful Petals Hair & Beauty salon in Westport is now opening a Castlebar branch of her business offering exclusive Aveda beauty hair care & makeup.
Petals Hair & Beauty in Castlebar has a prime location on Hopkins Road, just up from the post office, and offers a walk-in and appointment based service to clients.
The new venture is unique for Joan and her daughter Jenny – who has worked in the USA with Aveda - as it is an exclusive Aveda Salon offering organically derived Hair & beauty products and holistic treatments. The salon is also entirely eco-friendly and in addition to introducing a new nail bar to Castlebar, it will also house a miniature window garden – which will absorb the CO2 and give out Oxygen to benefit the Petals team and shoppers alike.
While Joan Rowland is an experienced business woman right to her fingertips, having grown up working in the family businesses of Staunton’s on Main Street, Castlebar it is in Westport, where 22 years ago she originally set up Petals Hair & Beauty, that has primarily benefitted from Joan’s professionalism and customer offering to date. A new chapter begins with Jenny Rowland joining the business, bringing a passion for the brand Aveda having worked in their experience store in Santa Barbara, CA.
Petals Hair & Beauty in Westport is a landmark salon frequented by a clientele from far and wide with many of the visitors to the busy tourist haven making regular return visits for hair, beauty and make-up services provided by a great team of experts. During the busy summer/wedding season it is often a case of all hands-on deck at Petals, Westport, when the growing team employed by Joan are in high demand for their top quality hair, barber and beauty services. All three of Joan’s girls, Katie, Jenny & Aoife have grown up working at the Westport salon. The online shop www.petals.ie is booming with free nationwide delivery on top luxury brands from the heart of Westport.
Joan and Jenny are delighted to now be in a position to expand the business with the opening of the Petals Aveda Hair & Beauty Salon in Castlebar.
“It is our great pleasure and privilege to bring Petals Hair & Beauty to Castlebar”, said Joan. “I was born and reared on Main Street in the town and Castlebar is a wonderful business and shopping venue. Aveda is a niche organically derived luxury brand, with a loyal following worldwide. When Aveda first burst onto the beauty scene, it started a revolution of holistic service and wellness that continues to set Aveda apart from every other beauty brand. Get ready for a salon that offers a sensory experience using the art and science of pure flower and plant essences from head to toe.”
“It has been terrific to see the many local businesses work through the most challenging times to retain Castlebar as the prime business and shopping town in Mayo and personally we have always wanted to make our own business contribution to our home town.”
“We are extremely grateful to our wonderful clientele in Westport and those who already travel over from Castlebar to avail of our services. Westport has been very good to us and the business and with this new salon right in the heart of Castlebar we look forward to offering unique organic services to the people of Castlebar and working with the business community to advance the customer offering in Mayo’s county town.”
In addition to the jobs petals.ie already provides in Westport, they will also be employing 5-7 new staff in Castlebar with the opening of her new salon.
“The salon premises are to quote Carol Wood, Northern Regional Sales manager, Aveda UK & Ireland -Bijoux – but ample for the moment and we are extremely keen to play our part and help in the creation of new jobs in Castlebar. We are currently recruiting for the Castlebar Aveda Salon and invite the people of Castlebar and surrounding areas to come in, visit our new salon and avail of our services, where we will be delighted to offer you our organic professional hair and beauty care.”
The organic and eco-friendly character of the new Petals Aveda Hair & Beauty in Castlebar is extremely important to Joan as she explains:
“All Aveda products are naturally derived, manufactured with 100% certified wind power and the first beauty company to use 100% post-consumer recycled pet bottles and jars - We think today more than ever people are looking for products that are not only environmentally friendly but also effective. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you are making choices that are so ultimately beneficial and have lovely side effects. They are suitable for all skin types and work to protect/improve …even the most stressed skin or strands. We are extremely excited to be bringing an Aveda Concept salon to the West of Ireland and as brand ambassadors hope to share the Aveda love with family, friends and guests.
