The Beauty of Business







In this week’s Business Spotlight, we bring a touch of glamour, with another of Aberdeenshire’s young and promising businesses, basd in Mintlaw.

With founder and owner Cherie Urquhart at the helm, Diva Beauty is a baby in the business world - only opening its doors to the public on the 1st August 2013. However, despite only being little over a month old at time of print, this business has already begun to walk, and is gearing up to run with Cherie already being an official service provider for beauty brand CND Shellac.

Cherie is an example of someone who knew what they wanted to do and pushed ahead to achieve it. The first seeds were sown in 2011 when Cherie, 33, attended an evening course in Manicure. She then began to grow bored with her regular job in an office, and decided to take the leap and enrol full time in college studying beauty.

Cherie studied at Banff and Buchan College, before wasting no time in founding Diva Beauty following her successful completion of her qualifications. Eager to continually improve and develop her services, Cherie is still undertaking further skills courses, including currently spending some of her free time completing a specialist course in Nail Enhancements and Eyelash Extensions, which will be completed in December.

Diva Beauty offers a number of professional services including waxing, manicure, pedicure, facials, eyelash & brow tinting and spray tanning. Cherie, who is always keen 

to provide the finest service, uses leading products such as Naturasun spray tans.  She also offers the popular Tibby Oliver Faith Lift - A facial treatment that provides an instant, safe, natural and non-invasive facelift, with this along with her spray tans being particularly special hits with her clients.

Business Gateway has helped Cherie with her ambitions, as Cherie notes:
“I found business gateway very helpful when I called them to ask for advice on how to go about extra funding and advertising. They pointed me in the right direction and gave me information on different people to contact which could help me with my concerns in starting a business.”

And what of the future for Diva Beauty?
“My plans for the future are to continue to develop my business and to bring new up to date treatments and products to a growing village."
