My beauty business dried up in lockdown, so I built a log cabin to do treatments in my garden

Four months ago, the future looked bleak for Co Fermanagh beauty therapist Jeanette Guy.

Having already been forced to pull the shutters down on her Flawless Beauty salon in Irvinestown, and with her other role at the spa in Lough Erne Golf Resort on hold due to Covid-19, the prospect of losing the business she had spent eight years building up was very real.

In the end the answer to her worries was closer to home than she thought and rather than sit back and let her salon dreams disappear she embarked on some new business-building of her own.
