Welcome to Sienna X. The team and I are here to support and help you along your journey. Whether you are an experienced therapist and fellow business person or a budding Entrepreneur, Extrepreneur (part-time business to supplement your income) or Mumpreneur (part-time business for you time and extra cash).
I started my working life working in sales with Yellow Pages before becoming an air hostess with British Airways. After travelling around the world a few times, I decided to settle down and start a family.
Whilst visiting a beauty show with a good friend, I set myself up as a nail technician, a Mumpreneur so to speak, it fitted in perfectly around my children – I enjoyed having control when I was working and how much I was earning!
I soon realised that spray tanning was much quicker and there was potential to increase my income by offering more treatments, so I invested in a tanning kit too. At the time spray tanning was starting to become really popular, but at that point tanning for mobile therapists and salons on a limited budget, just didn’t work. Static booths were costly and not transportable at all.
One afternoon whilst the children were playing, I noticed that the pop-up Thomas The Tank Engine tent that they were playing in was exactly the sort of design I was looking for. It was lightweight, waterproof, could be wiped clean and folded into a small bag, allowing it to be carried around easily. I got in touch with the manufacturer in China (I think they thought I was mad!) and they agreed to send over a sample. After a few tweaks, I bit the bullet and ordered a whole container – 948 cubicles!
The cubicles sold very quickly and the Spray Tan Cubicle Company was born! Soon after, customers began to enquire about tanning solution, equipment and training and bit by bit we added more products and services to the range. Fast forward ten years and we are now Sienna X, offering a full range of award winning tanning products and catering for every tanning need!
I’ve learnt a lot along the way in building up the business and I have always been passionate about helping other people to start their businesses and become successful too.
