Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m one of 2 founders of Flash Express, we opened our first branch in Chesterfield almost six years ago! It was always our plan to open a chain of beauty bars with a focus on walk-in customers - that’s why we chose to open our second branch in Sheffield city centre. We want to make sure beauty is as convenient as possible to our customers. We accept walk-ins whenever we can, and have online bookings and a text messaging service to remind our customers when they’ve booked in for.
What’s the best thing about having later opening hours?
Because we have such a busy city centre location, we want to let more people know about our later opening hours, so they can pop in and see us after work or on the way home. After working hours is definitely our busiest time, in our more established Chesterfield branch we’re fully booked up 2 weeks in advance! We want to make sure we’re as accessible as possible, which is why we’re open 7 days a week.
What do you like about being based in the city centre?
Our new branch is based right on Carver Street, so we’re right opposite Viper Rooms, and right in the centre of town. Quite a lot of our customers are students, so it definitely helps to be in this part of the city. We have a real mix of customers, but students are definitely one of our biggest audiences. We’re getting a lot of students come in after walking past our window on a night out, it’s really helping us get the word out and makes people more aware of our services. By offering free Club Flash membership to students, NHS workers and senior citizens, we can definitely reach a wider audience too.
What’s your favourite place in the city centre?
I haven’t actually had time to explore the city properly yet, but I really love Sheffield so far! The Peace Gardens is beautiful, and especially now it’s getting so sunny, Devonshire Green’s a nice place to sit. Lots of my customers are talking about Kommune too - I haven’t had a chance to go yet, but it sounds cool, it looks like it has a really nice atmosphere.
What’s your most popular treatment?
Our most popular services change a lot during the seasons, but at the moment we’re getting a lot of people coming in for microblading. Nails are always really popular, it's a treat getting your nails done, isn’t it! Because we’ve had a lot of bank holidays in the last few weeks, we’ve had a lot of ladies come in for those. There’s a really different vibe in this branch to our Chesterfield bar, it’s been really interesting seeing what treatments people go for.
