The perfect escape from the daily grind, Anke’s Skin & Body Care offers luxurious services ranging from manicures and facials to waxing and electrolysis.
A household name to those familiar with The Junction, Anke’s is known for its high end feel and quality treatments. However, in recent times, the salon has received somewhat of an upgrade.
After many years of working in nationally acclaimed salons in NSW and Queensland, born and bred Novocastrian, Melissa Charters has ventured back to her home town to own and operate Anke’s Skin & Body Care.
Focussing on continuing the salon’s legacy for offering cutting edge services, Ms Charters says she is combining her years of salon experience with her passion for business to provide nothing but the most luxurious treatments to her clients.
“With my years of working in high-end salons and successful businesses, I really wanted to create an environment where you receive the highest level of service combined with pure relaxation and comfort,” she said.
“We also work with fantastic products using innovative technology - so you get both luxury and result driven treatments. Babor, Payot and Circadia by Dr. Pugliese are all highly recognised products with highly effective ingredient technology based on extensive research.”
At Anke’s Skin & Body Care, each treatment is tailored to each individual client so every time you step into the salon you can expect a personalised experience. Ms Charters offers all of your beauty needs from waxing to specialised skin treatments and also stocks an extensive range of Babor and Payot products.
Ms Charters says she could not be happier being back in Newcastle running Anke’s Skin & Body Care. With plans to develop the business, Ms Charters intends to give the salon a mini-facelift ensuring Anke’s exudes luxury in every facet of the business. There may even be a name change in the mix so stay tuned.
“Many people ask me how and why I chose to get into the beauty therapy industry. For me the answer has never changed. I have a passion for people and being able to host an outlet where they can relax and have an opportunity to escape “life” for a moment through quality treatments is what brings me joy.
“My focus is on quality and ensuring my clients feel refreshed when they leave my salon. I hope that those in Newcastle and the surrounding areas are able to come in and experience the products and services we offer at Anke’s Skin & Body Care,” she said.
