Silk Spa in Vogeltown, Taranaki won the Best Business Model at the NZ Beauty Industry Awards on Saturday night.
"We opened our doors at the end of 2009 with the vision of offering the best in services, treatments and products while holding on to good old fashioned family morals. For many people, Beauty clinics can be very intimidating places - so we've designed an atmosphere where laughter and friendships rule; and where gumboots and stilettos comfortably sit next to each other. Silk does not have big fancy chandeliers, but the team makes every person who walks in our doors (including each other) think they are the Queen."
She continues "Silk Spa has the best of Teams. I know I am a tad bias, but I’ve always said this and always will. A team makes the place you work in, and we have the best of fun. Our team have each other’s backs and we love spending time together in and out of Silk. We are a tight-knitted team who generally love each other and love what we do."
- Tegan Frost – Manager, Senior Therapist / Skin Crazy Princess - 1st runner-up Best Therapist in NZ
- Karyn Stachurski – Therapist/ Perfectionist Queen -Winner of Most promising Therapist in NZ

|As skin experts the skin knowledge our team has is incredible and with our combined skin analysis equipment Silk can offer our clients a true, holistic skin diagnosis. We can now see what you were born with, what you have done to it so then we can prescribe products specifically for that client, no more guess work, no more wasted products."
I asked Charlotte what winning the Best Business Model in NZ means to her and her team.
Charlotte shares: "This is only as sweet as it is because of the success of my Therapists Karyn and Tegan. I am so proud of my whole team, and love the fact that a suburban Spa in a Provincial town is the best in the country. I fought hard for our location, I did not want to be in the CBD, and there aren't many who are more 'Taranaki Proud' than me." To bring three National Awards home to the 'Naki' means more than words can express."
