Meet Vanity Founder of Blink Brow Bar London

Meet Vanita- Founder of Blink Brow Bar London

From humble beginnings with one threading chair at Fenwick Bond Street almost 15 years ago Vanita Parti has built one hell of a brand. Today there are 30 Blink Brow Bar locations that do brows, lashes, nails, and so much more.   Best part about working for yourself For me it’s definitely the variety and the fact that one day is never the same. Every day is a new challenge from different parts of the business and I love being hands on to get a full idea of everything that is happening. I also love how I am always meeting new people and...

Tell us about how Neuoil was born and what you were doing before Before starting Neu Oil in 2018 we were both working as teachers, Mary taught art and design in London and Helen taught primary age children in Cornwall.

meet the mumma maker: Nicola Rowlands

What drove you to go into business for yourself?  I’ve always been enterprising and creative. I used to plan kids camps for the kids I babysat with games snacks and crafts. I sold friendship bracelets, Dr martens, lemonade... even mud pies. We moved a lot when I was growing up and I think it made me quite self sufficient and almost with a sense I never really fit in anywhere, and I guess I have just used that to my advantage.  What was the hardest part of getting things going?  Getting going was the easy bit it’s the bits where...

IVF – Let’s talk about it…

Well, not many people do, but why not?  I’m not sure and I’m definitely open about it now but at the time I didn’t broadcast to the world we were having IVF.  I had two amazing friends who had previously had IVF experiences and they were my guru’s.
