‘Eyes by Betty’ – The beauty studio with style.

I’ve been wanting to do more episodes on Thai owned businesses following the review I did last year with Lat, who owns ‘Lat Design Art Studio’ (see the episode in the Lifestyle section if your interested).

And so I got talking to a Thai lady recently called Betty in Karon whilst doing my rounds introducing people to the Farangbowl and picking up more subscribers and followers. She liked the sound of what we’re doing and asked if we would one day review her business. I thought well we haven’t covered beauty therapy before, and she had just started out so why not.

“I think the thought of doing a job you don’t enjoy for a living is terrible”.

‘Eyes by Betty’ is a delightful all glass fronted beauty studio situated in the heart of Karon a couple of doors up from a Starbucks coffee shop and restaurant. This ought to give you the indication that it is in a prime location.

Betty is an attractive and focused Thai lady who following going to college to study beauty treatments decided to (in agreement with her husband) open this studio at the beginning of year. Due to the global health issues, it has only now been able to open its doors and start to trade.

“I really enjoy my work and I’m grateful that I’ve been able to set up my business in such a great area” Betty said. Betty went on to tell the Bowl of how there are very few good beauty treatment shops in this part of Karon and that she believes there is a demand for the services her studio ‘Eyes by Betty’ has to offer. I told Betty that I was really impressed with how – following my booking – I was sent a confirmation email and then reminder emails leading up to my appointment. This was a professional touch and an indication that Betty is serious about making the right impression. When I asked her about how much she enjoyed her work she replied with the famous western phrase of how when you find a job you enjoy you are no longer really working. I’m all for this. Betty added “I think the thought of doing a job you don’t enjoy for a living is terrible”. We agree with her.

I returned that afternoon with a friend called Gea (whom I booked the appointment for) and filmed a complete false nail extension treatment which took just over an hour to complete. I’m no expert on this subject matter but ‘Jew’ the Thai lady that carried out the nail service was polite and incredible thorough and professional.

Following the nail treatment I said goodbye to ‘Eyes by Betty’ and smiled to myself as my friend Gea who had the nails done was looking so excited by the treatment.

Although this studio has only just opened its doors, westerners are dropping in for treatments. Betty had bookings throughout the day and was busy with a client when I arrived in the afternoon. It is great to see that business is now starting to look better for all those living and working in this country.

If you’re on holiday in Thailand and in the area ladies, why not park your partner in the Starbucks next door and treat yourself!!!
