We’ve just created some very special space for our latest new customer – a unique beauty clinic based in the Beehive – offering the whole remit of treatments to keep Darlington feeling confident and looking good!
The Cosmetics Room is run by Dawn O’Neill, an expert in aesthetics and cosmetic and medical tattoos, who thought the busy business park would be an ideal setting for her new venture.
Based in Beehive– which recently underwent a full make-over of its own – the Cosmetics Room is at the heart of Lingfield Point’s buzzing business community. The unique space is a welcome addition to the many facilities available at this development that can offer office space in Darlington from 1,800sqft and even an exclusive camper van for break out or informal meetings.
Dawn offers everything from permanent makeup and tattoo removal to wrinkle relaxing injections, vampire facials and skin peels. She works alongside Jennie Smith who specialises in cosmetic and beauty therapies such as make-up, HD brows, nails, contouring and spray tans.
Dawn said: “I wanted to train in permanent make-up and paramedical tattooing after reading about people who needed help after chemotherapy or surgery – it literally changed their lives – but I couldn’t afford it initially.
“Then I was made redundant and was able to use my redundancy to train – I believe in fate it was meant to be. Now I’ve been in business for five years and have worked freelance all over the North East but I was tired of the travelling and wanted my own base.
“I chose Lingfield Point as I have clients travelling for three hours for treatments, so my priority was easy access from the A1, A19 and train station and bus service, with free car parking.
“I also hoped that having Jennie as a beautician would provide a service to the people working at Lingfield Point and surrounding businesses.”
Estate Manager Eddie Humphries said: “It is always great to welcome new businesses to the neighbourhood.
“Our facilities are first class – from our fabulous broadband connectivity – essential for today’s businesses – to our 24 hour on-site concierge and security service and extensive car parking. The Cosmetics Room will add more colour to our exceptional facilities such as on site bus service, a café bistro, child care nursery, book swap club and our busy calendar of activities.
“Lingfield Point is very accessible, it’s easy to get to from across the North East and with around 3,000 people based here I can see the Cosmetics Room is going to be very busy!”
Beehive is home to a wide range of businesses from both the public and private sector including FaulknerBrowns – the internationally-acclaimed architectural practice, NFU, NFU Mutual and Internet firm Easy Web and offers space from 1,800sqft through to 15,000sqft+.
