Ten years ago, Julie moved from London with her husband and three children to begin a life in Hastings. Julie opened Serenity Hair and Beauty in 2008, starting in St. Leonards before moving to the Old Town, Hastings, three years later. Serenity quickly prospered. Relocating to Hastings Old Town meant a chance to expand on the business and its success. Serenity’s success is based on Julie’s, and the whole of her Serenity team’s, pride in their shop and work. Julie has over thirty-five years of hair dressing, beauty and business experience; after seven years of hard work – building up her salon, staff and clientele – she has gained a reputable and established name for herself and her salon. After winning ‘Salon of the Year’ for the third time in mid-2015, Serenity Hair and Beauty has undoubtedly earned its place as one of the best salons in Hastings.
