There is a need to provide quality service and environment for the spa and salon industry in Fiji.

These were the words of Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources Faiyaz Koya during the opening of the My Hair Affair salon in Martintar, Nadi on Tuesday night.

“This is the kind of thing the Government has been trying to promote in all the different industries,” he said.

“We are known as beautiful people in terms of our destinations but we have beautiful things to be done as well.

“This is part of the tourism industry and also part of the local industries.”

He added everybody, including locals were part of the industry.

The venture is worth $200,000, and the owner, Ajneeta Herbert, has the intention of creating a franchise in Fiji and abroad.

She is trained in hairdressing and nails technology and hopes to improve in beauty industry.

“I always wanted to open up a salon and it took me three months to open it, but I wanted to quit hairdressing at one stage,” she said.

“I am confident to do well and branch out.”

The Nadi native studied at the Manukau Institute of Technology in New Zealand for 18 months and graduated with a NZ Certificate in Emerging Stylist.

“All ladies need to look after themselves and look good and generations will do.”

She will employ five people, including two local masseurs, and a nail technician from the Philippines.

“I am a Fijian and why not employ more Fijians in the future.”

She owns the keratin complex certified salon.

“I have been doing keratin treatment and done special course on keratin, non-chemical product last for more than six months.”

The salon opens from 9am-9pm everyday.
