The team at Miramar beauty salon Haylo Skin & Body are buzzing after being awarded NZ Clinic/Spa of the Year at the recent Beauty NZ Awards. Hosted by the NZ Beauty Association on September 23,

the salon won the title having been nominated in the awards programme for the first time. Director Jess McCarthy says they believe it was their dedication to making their clients feel good as well as look good that gave them the edge over their fellow nominees.

“I think for us we really take the beauty association standards seriously, we want to look after clients, not just for their appearance but also their well-being.” “We want to help them build up their confidence and help them on the inside as well as the outside. We go the extra mile.”

A golden way of saying thanks to charity Shelly Bay painter Julie Best is giving back to a charity that has done so much for those needs of those caught up in an emergency. Julie, who co-owns a gallery in the suburb, is donating a large original painting, done specifically for the Life Flight Trust’s inaugural gala dinner to be held tonight. The 1x1 metre artwork is called “Noble Flight” and has pure 24 carat gold leaf in it too. “The painting is inspired by the beauty of Pencarrow which is a passionate subject of mine in my

artwork for a few years now and especially recently,” Julie says. “It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful Pencarrow and the Wellington south coast is.” While Julie has biked, sailed, driven and walked to Pencarrow – and flown in a plane above it – she had never done so in a helicopter until recently. “I got to photograph the piece of land that has inspired me so much of late and it was from a very unusual and stunning angle. “The moody greys and greens and

strong angled shafts of illuminated golden light were mesmerising and powerful.” “The 24-carat gold is at the tip of the peninsula. I use a lot of gold-leaf in my work and only very occasionally pure 24 carat gold-leaf.” An incident while tramping in the Abel Tasman National Park last summer led to her almost needing the services of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. “It made me consider how lucky we are to have these organisations in our community.”

Seatoun to put on show for lovers of art By Jamie Adams

The Seatoun Arts and Crafts Club is gearing up for its annual arts and crafts exhibition and sale at Seatoun’s Village Hall later this month. The exhibition of club members’ work will be the club’s 46th and vice-president Edith Campbell says there will be a great variety of items. Some of the items on display will be for sale. “There will be paintings, woodwork, toys, embroidery, patchworks – all hand-made,” she says. “Some people have got a lot of items.” There will also be exhibits from school-age art students. The club regularly hands out prizes to year 12 students from five Wellington high schools, with the hope they will exhibit their work and continue to do art in their final year. Edith believes art and craft is a hobby worth pursuing, even if

it wasn’t a viable way to make money. “There is therapeutic qualities in doing it,” she says.

The Seatoun Arts and Crafts Exhibition and Sale begins on the evening of October 27 to runs until 4pm October 29.

“Most people involved in beauty therapy want to make a difference.” “Customers who were made aware of the award told staff they were thoroughly deserving of it,” she says. Haylo’s website states its focus will always be to give clients the

best possible service in a fun, safe and nuturing environment. Its services include skin, body and nail care, as well as spray tanning and mineral make-up. Its products include Dermalogica, Pure Fiji, ORLY, St Tropez, Tend Skin, Lilash and Bella-Vi.
