Young People in Business: Daenia Ashpole pioneering night salon in Jamaica

Daenia Ashpole has a knack for spotting opportunities.

Her most recent target is a night-time beauty salon, which she opened in February.

Night Beauty, located in Kingston - offers all the services of a salon, but is opened between 7pm and 12am from Thursdays to Saturdays.

The graduate of the University of the West Indies, (Mona and Cave Hill, Barbados campuses) said she saw a need to offer beauty services outside the traditional working hours.

“The concept for a night salon is not just to provide one-off beauty services. What we are creating here is a beauty lifestyle,” the 28-year-old said.

Interestingly, Ashpole partnered with colleagues in corporate Jamaica, who also have the skills to provide beauty services. These include a public relations specialist and human resource specialist.

Ashpole hopes to expand the business to other Caribbean territories.
