On the 19th of May online beauty giant LookFantastic will be opening its first beauty hall. The 1700 square foot beauty hall will house a number of iconic beauty brands from LookFantastic including, Eve Lom, REN, Caudalie, Lab Series, Cowshed, Bumble & Bumble and more. A Leighton Denny nail bar, spa skincare area and a Mankind branded male grooming area will complete the offering.
Located in one of the UK’s oldest department stores, Benetts Irongate in Derby recently celebrated its 279th anniversary. Steeped in local history the store is perfectly located in a beautiful building next door to the town cathedral.
“We’re incredibly excited to be opening our first beauty hall as we continue to expand the LookFantastic portfolio into retail stores” – MD Rachel Horsefield.
LookFantastic originated in salons over 18 years ago and has since rapidly expanded. It now has 11 salons and an online retail business. 2013 was a record breaking year for LookFantastic with the company reporting sales growth of 59%.
The official store opening will take place on the 7th of June with a day of beauty activities planned. Customers will be given the chance to sample the nail bar and receive skincare treatments, as well as receiving expert advice on some award winning products free of charge. The first 100 customers to visit the store will also receive a complimentary goodie bag.
