OVER the past 10 years entrepreneur Nicola Byrne has grown the Urban Beauty Group from a small salon in Ormksirk to a chain of three stores employing around 20 staff. She has also launched the Lash Out! Lashes brand which is stocked in salons across the UK, and in concessions across Liverpool and Manchester.
Nicola built the business up while working full time, but after not going to University, was determined to gain a Master’s Degree, which she did in 2008.
In 2010 she took redundancy to concentrate on her business, and she also acts as a business mentor offering support to start-up businesses, and is vocal about Staff being the best asset to her business
