Paparoa’s Skin Image Clinic shared the red carpet with the best beauty names in the country in placing third in the ‘best new clinic’ category of the recent inaugural New Zealand Association of Registered Beauty Professionals biennial awards at Te Papa on 23rd September. This puts the clinic, which has been open not yet a year, right up there among the best salons in the country and the only Northland clinic to boast such an award this year.
Owner Nina Quan said the process involved an application detailing the clinic’s vision, goals, USP, competitive advantage, services, facilities, treatment protocols, business & marketing plans. This was then followed up with an interview before a panel of judges where she had to elaborate on her role in lifting the professionalism of the industry.
Nina is justifiably proud of her achievement. Within the past nine months she has completely renovated the old premises she took over in the main street of Paparoa and introduced a very different business model, one that focuses on skin health. Soon she plans to add this winning model to her clinic in Waipu.
