Step Into The Pink Room
I’m tickled pink to announce that the last Small Business Award semifinalist in the Hampshire 2017 Venus Awards is Verity Evans from The Pink Room.
How Does One Describe The Pink Room?
“Modern and Comforting Salon based in the Heart of Fair Oak Square. Southampton Pamper Parties at the Pink Room Hair and Beauty offers parties to all ages from 5 years to 100 years! We pamper you and make you feel better. We offer hair and beauty treatments and our main aim is to make you smile!”
About Verity Evans
Verity has been a fully qualified Beauty Therapist for 15 years now and a Qualified Hairdresser for eight years. She started off working in a salon then, when she fell pregnant with her eldest daughter (Lilly) she decided to go mobile as it offered more flexibility. Verity was then asked if she could do a party for six-year-olds, just painting their nails and putting a bit of glittery make-up on .. which she did. She LOVED it and the rest, as they say, is history!
Verity created Southampton Pamper Parties in 2005 which has been a great success. After child number two (Tia-Rose) she decided she wanted to teach her skills to others. Verity undertook her Teacher Training to become a College Lecturer in Beauty Therapy at Eastleigh College and taught NVQ Level 2 for two years.
Verity then had child number three (Frankie) – “Yes, I know I’m mad!” she says but didn’t return to teaching. Instead, she decided to focus on what she loved the most; Childrens’ Parties and Pamper Parties – and of course being a Mummy.
In November 2016, Verity opened The Pink Room in Fair Oak Square with her highly qualified and talented team. Now all her parties are based at her gorgeous salon!
When asked, Verity said that she would invite the following to a dinner party at The Pink Room:
Martin Luther King – I think he was brave and strong and I would love to speak to him about his experience.
My Mum – She bought my two sisters and me up on her own and she is a huge inspiration to me. Girl Power!
Margaret Thatcher – She was the first woman Prime Minister and I’d love to her about her experiences.
Princess Diana – Diana used her position and place in power to help charities and she wasn’t scared to go the extra mile.
Verity’s biggest influence is her sister, stating “She is my absolute rock. I don’t think I would have got this far without her being by my side, she is the ultimate business partner.”
On meeting Verity you can see the passion she has for what she does. Her whole face lights up when is talking about beauty, the industry, her aspirations of moving the The Pink Room forward and how she is encouraging her children to be part of the business.
“It is never too young to start with the basics, even at 11. Working with family can be challenging at times but at the end of the day they just want what’s best for you and I think that is why it works.”
So that’s it, folks – the final semifinalist – now the hard work comes making a decision on who goes through to the final – it is going to be a hard decision and I am glad that I enlisted the help of some amazing women to help me with the judging, including Nicky Matthews, Belinda Poore, Nikki Rees and Victoria Victory – thank you ladies!
