From First Manicure to Franchise Owner
“It all started with a manicure nearly a decade ago,” Katie begins, reflecting on her unexpected journey into the beauty industry. “I walked into Mooeys for a simple service and walked out dreaming of one day creating a place just like it. The idea of franchising came from an Instagram post by Mooeys, and after much contemplation, I realised there would never be a ‘perfect’ time—so I took the leap!”

Building the Dream in Winchester
Katie’s eyes light up as she describes the whirlwind process of opening the salon. “Choosing the location, the decor—it’s all been a blend of excitement and challenge. Despite a few logistical hurdles, the encouragement from the Mooeys team has been a cornerstone of my journey, keeping me motivated and focused,” she shares.

A Focus on Community and Client Experience
Katie’s passion for community shines through as she discusses her goals for the salon. “Mooeys isn’t just about beauty treatments; it’s about creating a space where everyone feels like they belong. Our goal is for every client to feel welcomed and valued—the same way I felt during my first visit to Mooeys.”

Why Mooeys?
“The Mooeys ethos is magnetic,” Katie explains. “It’s about more than just beauty; it’s about building confidence and a supportive community. The positive atmosphere and high standards are what drew me in and made me want to be a part of this amazing brand.”

Empowerment and Fun – Daily Life at Mooeys
Describing the salon atmosphere, Katie notes, “We aim for empowerment and enjoyment in everything we do. My team is handpicked for their energy, friendliness, and professionalism. We want every visit to Mooeys to be a highlight of our clients’ days.”

Challenges and Overcoming Them
Transitioning from IT to beauty wasn’t without its trials. “Every challenge from finding the right property to navigating new administrative tasks was a steep learning curve. However, with support just a call away, I felt equipped to tackle each issue head-on,” Katie reflects.

The Future of Mooeys in Winchester
With optimism, Katie looks to the future. “I see our salon becoming a beloved part of the Winchester community, a place where we can continue to innovate and set standards in the beauty industry. We’re excited about what lies ahead!”

Katie concludes: “to anyone considering a visit, think of Mooeys as your new favourite spot to unwind and be pampered. We’re here to make your day better, whether you need a quick touch-up or a full pampering session. Come in and see what makes Mooeys special,” Katie extends an open, warm invitation.
