Our salon is located in Penicuik, a town in Midlothian between Edinburgh & Peebles, east of the Pentland Hills.

Enhance Beauty & Spa’s mission is simple –  focus on one thing & be the best at it! For us that’s your salon experience.  Our aim is to deliver great treatments, great products, great results & great service.

Our space has three tranquil treatment rooms that invite you to escape from everyday living.  Designed to help you unwind, our rooms are painted a soothing grey & equipped with Moroccan candle holders that allow the candle light to dance around the room.

We offer a soothing & refreshing foot bathing experience before each of our spa treatments to help you unwind & relax before your treatment time begins.

At the heart of the salon is our Skin Bar.  The Skin Bar is the place where our clients can sample our products for free & find out what is truly best for their skin.  A unique experience within Enhance & one that we take great pride in.

Hey there!

I’m Nicola Sharp

I’m a salon owner & beauty business mentor.  I’m also a busy mum to three boys & a keen photographer!

Obsessed with: Crunchies,  Instagram & Grey’s Anatomy (Jackson obviously!).

After leaving beauty college, my life plan never consisted of ever owning a business.  I had my first a job in a salon and thought I had it all figured out.  I was going to knuckle down, gain experience and continue delivering great treatments to clients.  Then that business went bankrupt!  I was mortified to lose my job, especially after being told that ‘beauty’ was not a career… it was a hobby.

My entire life ‘plan’ was flawed!

No job, a mortgage & two cats.  Nightmare. I had choices.  Panic or plan.

So, at the age of 21, I approached the landlord for the lease.  Little did I know that a 1 year lease would turn into 19 years in business and still growing.  That single ‘ask’ has led me to the business that I am running today.

I often get asked by clients, friends & fellow business owners ‘how do you do it? Family, home, business…life?’  The simple answer to that is that this is my life. I choose this path and I thrive on being busy.  Whether I’m standing at the side of a freezing football pitch cheering on my boys’ team or fixing a lightbulb in the salon, I love the variation that my business gives me.  I put in the time working on my business so that I can gain the quality time that I want with my family.  It’s a constant juggling act but I’m pretty certain that the circus would give me right of passage now!

I love to chat & meet new people, so make sure you say ‘hi’ next time you visit.
