Beautician Shona Hartley and hairdresser Tammy Nonnenmacher have joined forces under one roof in Sale Street.
The pair, who previously worked in premises in Kite Street, have united to open Soul Hair and Beauty.
And Ms Hartley said they had already noticed the difference between the two locations.
“There is a hum of activity in Sale Street,” she said.
Ms Hartley said there were more pedestrians walking past in Sale Street than Kite Street which increased their presence for shoppers.
“You do have regular clients but you do have walk-ins too.”
She said it made sense to offer beauty and hair together.
“The point of difference is this is a one-stop shop,” she said.
“They can do a manicure or a pedicure or some waxing or treatment.”
Dr Narelle Overton and Dr Victoria Best are now part of the Women’s Health Orange team in Dalton Street.
Dr Best said Dr Overton would be joining the practice on June 20.
She said it meant there were now four doctors at the centre.
Dr Best said the all-encompassing practice allowed her to focus on her special interests which included women’s health, mental health and the health of children.
Dr Overton’s special interests include women’s health, mental health and skin care medicine.
Dr Best said women’s health was an area that had traditionally been neglected in rural centres.
“Sometime women are reluctant to talk about particular areas of their health,” she said.
SPARKING A CHANGE
Orange electricians have been invited to attend a training roadshow that will cover changes to their industry.
The event, run by the National Electrical Communications Association (NECA), will be at the Orange Ex-Services’ Club on Tuesday June 19 from 4pm-7pm.
NECA executive director Oliver Judd said new standards that cover all electrical work were being introduced.
“These are major developments that will change how electricians go about their business,” he said.
“It’s crucial electricians in Orange understand the changes so they are fully compliant.”
