Hello, my name is Peter and I am married to Christine who is Vietnamese, I first met Christine in Vietnam in 2010 and we married in the UK in 2012. We can both be seen here in a selfie Christine took when we went back to Vietnam to visit family, which we do every year. If holidaying in Vietnam is on your to-do list I can thoroughly recommend it, Vietnam is a beautiful country and particularly so in the South around the Mekong Delta.

After graduating in English from Can Tho University, Vietnam, Christine went on to study music at The Academy of Music, Ho Chi Minh City. I started my working life owning and running three ladies hairdressing salons, so when Christine came to live in the United Kingdom and told me she wanted to open a nail salon it was very easy for her to set one up. As a result of my previous salon experience Christine decided to build not only a nail salon but a number of individual Rent-a-Chair salons all conveniently located in the same building which is called The Beauty Zone. Within The Beauty Zone there is Christine's nail salon plus my Rent-a-Chair salon Sassy Sugaring and soon to be, although they have been delayed moment as a result of COVID-19, a hairdressing studio, beauty, lash and make up areas.

The video below was made in 1986 ( I know I don't look old enough). As a result of being in the hairdressing business I knew lots of people in the beauty business and made promotional vidoes for many of them, in many ways they were a forerunner to YouTube. The technology was analog so I am afraid quality is not that good, but as you watch this video you will see how I was introduced to Sugaring. Over the years I have improved the quality of our sugar paste and develop further the technique of Sugaring.
