Shakira Hair and Nails Salon

Ever since she was a young girl in her early teens, Charlotte Borg showed a particular flair for hair dressing and beauty therapy.

At the young age of 15 she attended a hair-dressing course at a local salon, and she has never looked back since then. Charlotte started her Beauty Therapy business in 1995, when she opened her first salon, Shakira HairĀ & Beauty Salon, in Attard.

Two years later, she moved to Hamrun, where she opened the Beauty Cottage. Since bringing up a child and working was already proving to be quite challenging, Charlotte moved her business to her home when the second child was born.

The salon in Naxxar is fully equipped, with a room for hair dressing and nails, and another for make-up and health and beauty services, granting all the privacy one deserves when undergoing beauty treatments.

Charlotte obtained a Distinction in City & Guilds and Habia Diploma in Hair Dressing, a Beauty Therapy Diploma from Infa International School of Beauty, and a Nail Technician Diploma from Perma Nails (Australia), among others.

She has attended many other refresher courses to keep abreast with the ever-changing world of hair-styling and acrylic and gel nail techniques.

Charlotte’s love for Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy and Nails goes beyond the professional level because she considers this line as her most-beloved hobby, and it only obvious to state that the more you love what you’re doing, the higher the results that are achieved.

And we are proud to say that results speak for themselves!
