Meet the Owner at Downtown Beauty Loft
Get to know the people behind your favourite places & spaces in downtown Burlington! We’ll be introducing you to new owners & businesses throughout the year!
This week, meet Robin Lemp, Owner, Downtown Beauty Loft
1. Why did you start/open your business?
I have been working in the spa industry for 18 years, when I found out the spa I’ve worked at for the past 6 years was closing I knew I didn’t want to start over again as a new employee.
2. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.
I am a full service spa but I specialize in body sugaring and skincare. Sugaring is a natural form of hair removal that is great for anyone with sensitive skin or allergies to wax.
3. What made you choose Downtown Burlington to open your business?
I have worked in Burlington for the past 10 years and I have built the most amazing clientele. Without their help and encouragement I would not have been able to open my own business.
4. What other downtown businesses do you frequent and do business with?
I have so many businesses in the downtown that I love visiting. I like to stop in and see my old coworkers from Waters Edge Salon and Spa. There are so many great restaurants close to my shop. A couple of my favourites are Son of a Peach and The Works.
5. Your daughter Ava will be joining you at work this summer – do you have any advice for parents who work with their children?
My daughter is new to the workforce and I am trying to keep her from becoming overwhelmed. I try to remember the feeling of excitement and nervousness I had when I started my first job. This is new for both of us so we are learning together.
6. You have QUITE the selection of OPI nail colours for your Clients to choose from … what are your top three colour picks for summer 2022?
So far this summer I have been doing a lot of light colours. Funny Bunny is always a classic. Princesses Rule is a great sheer light pink and my personal favourite is Making light of the Situation. An iridescent sparkle that looks great over almost any colour.
