SPMU – the search for a permanent solution that doesn’t look … too permanent!

semi permanent makeup at cannelle medispa, eyeliner and eyebrows

The tide is definitely turning on the cosmetic procedure front. By this, I don’t mean in terms of popularity, injectables and cosmetic procedures are increasingly popular but it is the over-done procedures resulting in extreme facial changes that seem to be falling in popularity (thank goodness). Evidence of over-filled lips, frozen foreheads and severely phoney brows are no longer as prevalent across the socials as they once were. People are opting for long term subtle enhancement rather than pronounced metamorphosis which is, thankfully, a relief all round.

So can clients who wish to enhance certain features - whether for rejuvenation, medical or purely aesthetic purposes - achieve a happy medium where results are (semi) permanent i.e. you do not have to rely on an often intensive daily make up ritual but also subtle enough not to warrant an ‘Oh my god what on earth have you had done?!’ reaction.

The simple answer is yes. When done correctly (and consultation is also KEY to good results here) SPMU treatments (semi-permanent make up - which is pigmentation that fades over time tattooed onto the skin - can beautifully enhance a person’s appearance without zero OTT or OMG levels included!

A Beauty Salon in Summertown, Oxford has been selected as one of 100 trail-blazing small businesses in the official count-down to Small Business Saturday, which takes place across the UK on 7 December 2019.

Cannelle Medispa is one of this year’s ‘Small Biz 100’, a selection of small businesses drawn from every corner of the UK that reflect the vibrancy of the UK’s 5.6 million small businesses. In the 100 days running up to Small Business Saturday, the campaign will spotlight each of the Small Biz 100, as part of its mission to celebrate small business success and encourage the nation to 'shop local' and support British small businesses.

This year’s Small Biz 100 features a range of unique independent businesses each contributing to their communities and offering something different, including Cannelle Medispa, founded in 1997 by France Baudet. For over 20 years Cannelle Medispa has offered high quality beauty therapy to the people of Oxfordshire and the Summertown salon has expanded to 11 treatment rooms employing 11 therapists. In recent years the demand for more permanent results has meant that Cannelle now also offers advanced aesthetic treatments such as laser hair removal, non-surgical facelift treatments, skin resurfacing, Chemical Peels and Laser Tattoo Removal as well as the traditional beauty treatments.

Cannelle Medispa joins hundreds of previous Small Biz 100 businesses, which have been announced by the iconic campaign since its UK launch in 2013.

Day one of the Small Biz 100 count-down kicks off with The Butchers Social, from Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire, with Cannelle Medispa being placed in the spotlight on Friday 22nd November, where it will be celebrating by offering clients and local businesses special discounts, local nibbles and wines, a pre-xmas shopping sale on skincare products and vouchers and a grand prize draw.

France Baudet, Founder of Cannelle Medispa said:

“I am absolutely thrilled to be one of the 100 Small Biz winners. For over two decades we have enjoyed the salon buzzing with lovely clients and like all local businesses we have endured the ups and the downs that comes with developing and expanding a business. To be recognised as a Small Biz 100 winner is very exciting, we are proud to be alongside some fantastic businesses from all across the UK’

Director of Small Business Saturday, Michelle Ovens MBE said:

“Each year this campaign has grown in support from government, business and communities alike, and so we can’t wait to begin the annual 100-day countdown to Small Business Saturday with the launch of the Small Biz 100 2019.

Small Business Saturday’s increasing popularity means it was harder than ever to choose just 100 of this country’s incredible 5.6 million small businesses to showcase, but we believe those we have chosen are true representatives of the diverse, creative and inspiring heroes at the heart of our communities.”

In its seventh year, Small Business Saturday is the UK's most successful small business campaign, which last year saw an estimated £812 million spent in small businesses across the UK on the day, according to research commissioned by founder and principal supporter American Express.

This was up from the £748 million spent on Small Business Saturday in 2017, with 59% of people aware of the day saying they spent more than usual.

The #SmallBizSatUK campaign trended in the UK top 5 on Twitter on the day, reaching over 100 million people globally.

The Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Mayor of London were among those publicly supporting the campaign, alongside more than 90% of local councils.

Small Business Saturday also benefits from the backing of leading business organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses, Indeed and Dell. The campaign is also supported by Amazon, printed.com, Square and Xero.

Small Business Saturday 2019 is open to all businesses to participate in and will commence its regional bus tour roadshow across the UK during the autumn, to drum up further support.
